Did you know? Côte de Léchet would come from the Latin verb «Laxicare» meaning «to let go». Would the Coast have been abandoned for several years? Although several hypotheses exist as to the origin of the name of the climate, the place called «Côte Lâche» located in Chichée, a few kilometres from Chablis, would confirm this theory.
HARVESTING: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.
VINIFICATION: The grapes are destalked and placed in vats to be vinified.
AGEING: The wine is then aged in oak barrels (25% new barrels) for a period of 8 to 12 months.
