Guillaume and Joëlle Vrignaud identify this little part of their holdings in the 1er cru of
Fourchaume as producing the best and most expressive fruit. Now with some bottle age
the wine is singing whilst always retaining the Chablis identity. Elegant and concentrated
with notes of mandarin and golden apple, balanced by a saline acidity.
About the Producer
Everyone has their own interpretation of what Chablis should be, the style it should have. Operating 29 hectares around Fontenay-près-Chablis, Domaine Vrignaud has a very specific approach to the Terroir. Being forward-looking means first of all being aware of one's heritage and wishing to defend it in every way. At the Domaine this involves knowledge of the plots located on Portlandian and Kimmeridgian strata, the care of the vines whether they are clones or whether they come from mass selection and naturally production in Organic Agriculture.
Organic Agriculture is not an end, it is a way of thinking, a means of revealing the terroir. A wine is born in the vineyard, not in the cellar. Pressing, vinification limiting inputs, the use of vats or barrels highlight the soils, subsoils, climate, berries and know-how of the Domaine. This know-how and this constant attention nourish a style of Chablis wines day after day.
More than a style of wine, it is the culmination of a philosophy. This philosophy, our philosophy, is balance. The balance of the vines and the environment, of the berries and the geology, of the wines and the emotions they must provoke in each taster.
