2018 Domaine Gerard Duplessis Chablis, Burgundy, France

Flint, green apple, lemon, underbrush, and field mushroom. Notes of lime-flower, mint, and acacia occur frequently, as do aromas of licorice and freshly-cut hay.



Chablis, from within the village limits (Chablis can be made outside of the town), is a single vineyard of relatively young vines, about 10-15 years old. A bottle to enjoy within three years and a true classic Chablis.


A family Domaine for five generations now, Lilian is the latest vigneron of an estate created in 1895, taking over for his father Gerard in 1999. After going to school and internships in the region, Lilian has turned the Domaine into one of the very few organic estates in Chablis. The Domaine is entirely within the Chablis and Petit Chablis AOCs and is planted solely to Chardonnay. Most of the vineyards are Premier Cru (Vaugiraut, Vaillons, Fourchaume, Montee de Tonnerre, Montmains, Mont de Milieu) and one Grand Cru (Les Clos). All vineyards used for village, Premier Cru, and Grand Cru wines are Kimmeridgian limestone, with the Petit Chablis on Portlandian limestone.
