This is a very clean, fresh and flinty Chablis but one that is also intriguingly complex. The layers of oak are subtle at first but build in the glass to bring depth but doesn’t throw it off balance. (18/11/2020)
The 2018 Butteaux is elegant and well-balanced with slowly emerging layers that reveal an unexpected concentration. Served too cold and it comes across watery – this is a subtle Chablis that needs to be treated accordingly. (24/7/2021)
Piuze has worked for the great and the good in Burgundy including Olivier Leflaive. He eventually set up his own winery in Chablis in 2008. No vineyards were purchased but through connections made over the years good relationships were established with various growers. Piuze is keen to put himself forward as winemaker rather than grower but still plays a strong part in how the vines are managed.
His wines have a focus on purity of fruit and he is careful in his use of oak ensuring it is used where appropriate rather than a blanket usage policy. Piuze is also interested in longevity and the evolution of flavour in his wines making even the Petit Chablis worth holding on to in good years.
