" Thanks to the confidence that several retired wine growers have granted to my wife and I, it is a great pleaser to announce the creation of the Domaine Céline & Fréderic Gueguen, in January 2013. Theses wine-growers chosen us to carry on with the prosperity of their vines.

All of their cultural techniques that take care about environment of the vineyard will allow them to preserve the aromatic complexity of this wines from all different plots. The property, an 19th- century building has a wonderful view over to the Chablis hill.
