The vineyard of Chablis is made out of 4 A.O.P.’s:
Chablis Grand Cru, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis and Petit Chablis. Its grape variety is unique, called Chardonnay. This grape produces an unmatched minerality in the vineyard of Chablis. Its yield produces 54 hectoliters per hectare for Grands Crus, 58 hectoliters for Premiers Crus and 60 hectoliters for Chablis and Petit Chablis.
Vinification is completed in steel tanks and fermentation obtained on fine lies with controled temperatures. The process is completed after slight filtration and maturation at constant temperatures in the cellar. After 8 to 12 months our Chablis is ready to be bottled.
Chablis Grand Cru
They are the big Lords of our appellation, containing 7 (Les Clos, Vaudésir, Valmur, Blanchot, les Preuses, Grenouille, Bougros), all grouped together in the same well limited geographical area. Rich and generous, harmonious and long, they need to be “expected” for 3 or 4 years in order to give us their greatness. They will age 10 years for good vintages and 15 years for great vintages. At a temperature of 12°C to 14°C they pair extremely well with fine foods: lobster, turbot, … Dare to try a Grand Cru of 15 years with a foie gras!
Chablis Premier Cru
After the Lords, meet their princes. There are 40 spread out over the well limited vineyard. The most known are: Fourchaumes, Mont de Milieu, Montée de Tonnerre, Vaillons, Montmains, Beauroy… Rich in aromas, deep and charming, they are known for their elegance. To be consumed, in preferance, between 3 and 10 years after harvest, at a temperature of 12°C. The palette of dishes that accompanies these wines is as large as their palette of aromas: a puff pastry of seafood or grilled lobster, a zander or a pike with white butter. The harmony has few limits…
The range of Chablis is rich: from wooded notes from the “Wooden barrels”, to the authentic taste of the terroir with “Old Vines” and finish with the complex aromas of ‘Fleur d’Acacia”.
Fruited, fresh and limpid for Chablis. Franc and with great freshness for Petit Chablis. They are consumed young and will perfectly accompany meat dishes or shell fish.
