Pale straw color, with green highlights. A mix of tart tree-fruit, just-picked white flowers, crushed stones, and almond skins on the nose. Subtle but no wallflower, this wine builds on the palate, with fresh pear juice, green-apple skins, orange blossoms, brewer’s yeast, chalk, and flint. A rounded mouthfeel, with plenty of verve and bracing acidity on the lemony finish. An exemplary Chablis. Drink now–2028
This highly sought-after, 100% estate-grown bottling reflects the traditional methods and hallowed terroir of an acclaimed 300-year-old producer. Drawn off a south-facing vineyard from prized terroir, the bracing verve and mineral purity of this classic cuvée will remind you just why Chablis defines white wine.

Clotilde Davenne Petit Chablis 2021
Notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) mixed with citrus and grapefruit with a mineral, flinty edge. The palate is lively, crisp with aromas of peach, white fleshy fruit and lovely roundness. Salty and mineral, this Petit Chablis has plenty of length and vibrancy.
About the wine: No one wanted to buy this land in the 90’s: it was far too steep! Clotilde knew this place had potential because of the kimmeridgien limestone terroir usually reserved to higher level Chablis and 1er Cru. The only reason it’s considered Petit Chablis is due to its northern exposition, however full ripening is not an issue these days! This is truly a unique flavourful Petit Chablis amongst the very best at this level. On lees until bottling. Unoaked.

Daniel Dampt Chablis 2022 is really quite pretty with its ripe and fresh pear, green fruit scents. The supple and very round middle weight flavors possess an attractive texture before culminating in a saline-infused, pure and balanced finish. This is one of those wines that could easily be enjoyed now but should also reward a few years of cellar time if desired.

Gautheron Chablis 2021
Our Chablis are located on the right bank of the Serein. The soil is clay-limestone (Kimmeridgien). In its Chablis, the Gautheron estate seeks a balance between fruit and minerality.
Very beautiful pale gold color with soft green reflections. The nose is delicious, pure, floral and fresh. First of all, it favors flowers, then it gives us notes of peaches and apricots, and finally we discover the minerality. The palate is delicate and balanced. It combines maturity, elegance and freshness, supported in the end by a mineral touch.
MAN, SOIL, PLANT …
“Today we are aware of the major role we play in biological balance and respect for nature. ”
The Gautheron estate is proud of the land it inherited from its ancestors and wishes to save it for future generations.
The vineyard has now gone beyond the simple stage of reasoned pest management since in 2009, 3 hectares of the total surface were cultivated in organic farming.
Currently, we do not have the technical means to transform all of our production into organic farming.
Here are the main guidelines of the estate with the aim of respecting the environment and expressing the terroir:
Reduction in the dose of phytosanitary products.
Improvement of soil structure and bearing capacity.
Removal of weedkillers in favor of plowing or grassing.
Regulating the vigor of the vine with the help of soil analysis, shoots and petioles.
Limitation of yields by carrying out prophylactic control: disbudding (one or two passages per year) and green harvest (if necessary) to limit yields.
Dynamization of microbial life.
Stimulation of the vine’s self-defense (use of a decoction of nettles and horsetails in particular)
Since 1987, we have been harvesting mechanically to benefit from greater flexibility of intervention. Only a few plots, mainly old vines, are harvested manually.
The most important being the quality.

Apricot, peach, citrus and pear. Fragrant and aromatic, flinty with a mineral backbone. Fresh, lively, juicy, textural and crisp. The finish is long and grippy.
Guillaume Vrignaud is an emerging gem in Chablis. Growing excellent grapes and making some exciting wines which are attached to nature, Guillaume wants his wines to reflect the terroir and its character: Lively, mineral and of great finesse. He wishes to deliver lively, authentic, and energetic Chablis wines. Guillaumes’s wines offer a more natural and textural approach to the Chablis terroirs being certified organic with low intervention.

This comes from a single 1.8 hectare vineyard located next to 1er Cru Vaulorent, the north facing side of the Grand Cru hill, named Des Couverts. The vineyard lies in a cool corridor and is typically the last wine to be harvested.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a fleck of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Delicate lime and green apple aromas run into some wet stone and subtle fresh herb notes. Quite open and fullish in its mouthfeel, pear, green apple and lime flavours preside on the front palate with an undercurrent of wet stone, subtle biscuit and mineral. Dry crisp finish with an aftertaste of pear, lime, light green apple, wet stone and mineral.
Drink over the next 4-5 years
