From the left side of the Serein, situated on a steep flank of the hill of Montmains, above and to the west of les Forets, lies the 1er cru Butteaux. Servin's tiny parcel of Butteaux adjoins that of Raveneau. Old vines, perfect exposition, and extremely rocky Kimmeridgian soil composition, make Butteaux a special wine, and one that is perhaps unsurpassed even by the Grand Cru for its expressiveness of character. Fermentation and aging all in stainless steel tank.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux has a crisp and tensile bouquet with more precision than the Les Forets on the nose. The palate is fresh and crisp with an edgy opening, quite spicy in the mouth with white pepper on the back palate, complex and almost broody in the finish. Marc Cameron described this as a "connoisseur's Chablis" and I know where he is coming from with regard to that sentiment. There is an intellect behind this Chablis.

Wine SpectatorApple, melon, stone and earth aromas and flavors combine in this succulent white. Though lean in profile, this shows fine intensity and length. Drink now through 2023. 75 cases imported.
