ABOUT THIS WINE

The Chablis Vieilles Vignes comes from the Domaine’s older vineyard parcels that have a minimum vine age of at least 35 years. The wine is aged in used oak barrels for 12 months, and then another 6-8 months is stainless steel prior to bottling.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

In the late 1950’s, Raoul Gautherin founded his Domaine as we know it today, making wine from his family’s vineyards, which date back to 1585. Raoul's son and grandson, Alain and Adrien have taken the vineyard management and the winemaking to new heights for the family. The family has 16.5 ha of vineyards total in Chablis with holdings in the Premier Cru’s of Vaillons, Montmains, and Mont de Milieu, along with holdings in the climats of Vaudesir, Les Clos and Grenouilles within Chablis Grand Cru. With minimal use of new barrels, Adrien’s ability to create rich yet bright and beautiful wines is developed through extended lees aging, no battonage and working with vineyards that have an average vine age of 38 years from his Chablis all the way up to the Grand Crus.
