Our Domaine

The Chablis area

carte des cépages du Chablisien

Chablis is situated at the northern limit of Burgundy, halfway between Paris and Dijon (about 150 km from each) and more precisely halfway between Tonnerre and Auxerre (20 km from each). Chardonnay is the one and only allowed grape variety in the Chablis appellation.

The Chablis vineyard, symbol of the Yonne area and covering 4,200 hectares nowadays, spreads on 20 boroughs on both banks of the Serein river. Chablis wines are ranked according to 4 appellations : Chablis Grand Cru, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis, and Petit Chablis.

Presentation

Our four-generation estate, which nestles in the heart of the city, is planted with parcels of vines aged 2 to 65 years. The single chardonnay grape variety is grown on clayery-limestone slopes with Kimmeridgian fossiles, which, combined to best sunshine exposition, enables it to reveal its unique character in our first-range Chablis wines.

We now own 18 hectares, covering the 4 appellations on a selection of best-situated slopes : Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru and Chablis Grand Cru.

2 of the 3 daughters of Laurence and Denis have been working on the estate since 2005 for Claire and 2015 for Marine. Claire works in the winemaking and in the vineyard, while Marine in in charge of administrative tasks and also works in the vineyard.
