This cuvée is named after an old Renaissance building, in which trees and plants were put away in winter. This small patch of vine, planted near the Clos Béru, is surrounded by ancient fig , apple and pear trees. It is an orchard, set in the heart of Chablis. The top soil of l’Orangerie is atypicaly rich in clay. It brings appealing fruity notes of orange marmelade to the wine. Yet, because the vine roots plunge deeper into the lime subsoil, the wine keeps its typical complex Chablis nervous and mineral characteristics.
