L’Homme Mort is one of the eight localities that make up the Fourchaume Premier Cru climat in Chablis. Located on a beautiful slope overlooking the town of Maligny on the banks of the Serein river, this is a top A grade growing site for Chardonnay. The superior chalk and limestone-rich Kimmeridgian soils in the soil give the wines a high-tensile strength and racy edge, with powerful lemony and mineral notes that makes the Chardonnays of L’Homme Mort almost ‘electric’. This is terroir-driven wine at its best, offering a crisp, flavourful articulation of what makes this locale worthy of its Premier Cru status.
