Our wines

Petit Chablis

Our Petit Chablis comes from a hillside parcel of vines with a limestone-marne soil, ideally facing due South which gives it the advantage of excellent natural maturity.
 
Tasting note: 
With its clear golden robe and brilliant highlights, the Petit Chablis is only small in name. It is a convivial wine, perfect for an aperitif amongst friends or family. It also goes well with summer salads, seafood, fish. Egg dishes, Burgundian snails, or the famous andouillette of Chablis. Equally adapted to goat’s cheese or harder cheeses like Gruyère, Comté, Beaufort...
 
Can be drunk young, but is best after two or three years.
 
Serve at 8°C as an aperitif, or 9 to 10°C at the table.
 
Wine-lover’s notes :
The 2011 vintage: a pale yellow colour with hints of grey. The nose is very elegant, finessed with notes of yellow fruits, and mineral. This minerality is also apparent in the mouth, with a finish reminiscent of fresh apricots and citrus fruit. The length of the mouth is notable thanks to a fine acidic balance. 

Chablis

Our Chablis comes from a parcel which is partially on a plateau, with a marne-based soil facing South-East, giving it freshness and the typical minerality of Chablis.

Tasting notes:
Its colour is pale gold lifted by brilliant highlights. It is defined by its balance between freshness and minerality, with an array of aromas including white fruits, citrus notes and flowers. It will pair well with oysters and sea food, as well as snails, andouillettes, poultry and goat’s cheese.

It can be drunk young, but will be at its best after 5 to 6 years.

On its own serve at 10°C, at the table at 12°C.

Wine lover’s notes:
2008 vintage:
A pale yellow hue with golden hints, brilliant.
The nose shows floral and praline notes, very fine and fresh, a vintage that is developing very well.
The mouth is well-balanced, the praline notes appear again as well as candied citrus (orange).

2009 vintage:
A pale yellow colour with a touch of grey, brilliant.
The nose is typical, powerful, with marked mineral notes, and aromas of citrus and white fruits.
The mouth is structured with the minerality so typically associated with the chablisien terroir, good length, and a fine acid balance.

2010 vintage:
A pale yellow colour with a touch of grey, brilliant.
The nose, powerful and complex; mineral, floral and above all showing notes of fresh exotic fruits (pineapple, mango…).
The mouth is round and fresh, well-balanced with a mineral finish with fresh fruits. A wine that is both original and that represents the vintage very well.

2011 vintage:
Pale yellow with a hint of gold, brilliant.
The nose shows the finesse and elegance of white flowers, citrus fruit and fresh white fruits.
The mouth is equally fresh, with a pleasant roundness and a remarkable length from the citrus characters; still a little closed and tight in its youthfulness, but shows the promise of good ageing potential. 

Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

We have two parcels of Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons situated in two different vineyards - Roncières and Épinottes. They face South-East with a soil of colluvial deposits of limestone clay, very stony on a Kimmeridgian bedrock.

Tasting notes
The Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is pale in colour, lifted by sparkling highlights. It is defined by its powerful and elegant nose of ripe yellow fruits. Its mouth is rich and plump, but also retains its vivacity.
This is a seductive wine that opens up faster than other Chablis 1er cru. It is approachable when young, but also has good ageing potential.
It pairs perfectly with game terrines, burgundy snails, Chablis andouillette, poultry, fish, shellfish and crustaceans – uncooked or in sauce, boiled eggs or Chablis ham.

It can be drunk after 3 years, or up to 10 for certain vintages.

Serve between 12°C and 14°C whether just enjoying it alone or at the table.

Wine-lover’s notes
Vaillons 2010:
Its has a pale yellow colour with golden hints, real brilliance.
The nose is powerful and complex. There is a fine blend of mineral, ripe yellow fruits, and exotic fruits which give this wine a magnificent aromatic potential.
The mouth is just as rich, round, long, balanced. This is a structured wine, expressive too, with a predominance of yellow fruit.

Vaillons 2011:
Pale yellow robe with brilliant gold highlights.
The nose is both intense and elegant. It shows ripe yellow fruit and a superb minerality, so typical of Chablis.
The mouth is also intense, with a remarkable roundness and freshness. The yellow fruits remain, and the finish makes one feel one is biting into the fruit. A very well balanced wine, beautiful.

Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Our Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy is made from a parcel on a slope with kimmeridgian marnes, facing due South. This is ‘the terroir’ for the great wines of Chablis.

Tasting notes
The Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy has a pale yellow colour with bright gold/grey highlights. It is defined by its elegant nose of white fruits and its persistent mouth – fresh and mineral – with more than a hint of citrus.
It pairs perfectly with warm oysters, fish, shellfish and poultry in sauce, a cheese like Chaource, Langres or Epoisses, or even the traditional ham of Chablis.

The Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy is a wine that is worth waiting for. It will be at its best after 7-8 years, sometimes more, depending on the vintage.

Serve between 12°C and 14°C whether just enjoying it alone or at the table.
