Chablis, a reputation dating back to the 9 th century, based on a single grape variety - Chardonnay - and has four appellations: Petit Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and Grand Cru. A limestone plateau deeply cut by valleys - in particular that of Serein -, marls and a thick layer of alluvium at river level. The Premiers Crus and Grands Crus occupy the most exposed areas - to the south and west - and develop their characteristic minerality on these slopes, which is accompanied by great conservation potential.
Today, Lilian Duplessis heads the wine estate . Concerned about the good health of the soils and the climatic challenges, it only works in organic production, anxious to respond with accuracy and respect to the various pathologies which threaten the vine. Practices which not only do not harm the quality of the wines, but are suitable for an increasingly strong demand from lovers of great Chablis.
