Mon Chéri Chablis is a sparkling Pyment crafted with Virginia Chardonnay Grapes, Clover Honey, and Virginia Oyster Shells. Chardonnay vines grown in the Chablis region of France are planted in soils comprised of limestone, clay, and fossilized oyster shells. The soil gives the wines a distinct mineral flavor. Inspired by that flavor profile we crafted Mon Chéri Chablis with Virginia oyster shells to replicate the minerality.
