About this Wine
From the villages of Chichee & Prehy, the 40 year old vines are planted on regionally classic soils of Kimmeridgian, and limestone. This Jurassic soil, with its maritime fossils, is what provide the wines of Chablis with their hallmark minerality and salinity.
The palate of this wine is fruity, well-balanced, silky, racy, and offers a light acid structure. It is slightly unctuous, with a faint nutty character in harmony with its yellow stone and orchard fruit elements.
Like all their wines, there is a distinct modern feel, while at the same time still being true to its origins, both respectful and representative of the terroir on which the grapes are grown. The perfect drop for any occasion.
About Domaine Gueguen
The estate of Celine and Frederic Gueguen is made up of 25 hectares of vines in the villages of Chablis, Chichee, la Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Saint-Bris and Irancy.
Celine, from a winemaking family, worked with Frederic at her father Jean-Marc Brocards estate for over a decade before they decided in 2013 to go it alone and create their own wines.
Their cellar is in the small village of Prehy, where they work out of a 19th-century building crafting a deliberately modern style of wine, with a focus to respect and express their terroir.
One of their main goals is to preserve their soil, which is why they use neither chemical fertilisers nor herbicides. From 2015 onward all their wine have been made using exclusively organic processes, with the domaine beginning its conversion to certified organics with the 2019 vintage.
Made up of 35 separate parcels, Domaine Gueguen vineyards provide both great complexity, and incredible richness.
