2019 Chablis ‘Les Champréaux’, Domaine Vrignaud, Burgundy

£30.00 inc. VAT

Guillaume Vrignaud joined the family Domaine in 1999, when his father was a member of the co-op in Chablis, and convinced him to build a cellar and start making his own wines. Their success was such that they have grown from 12 hectares of vineyard to 27 hectares today.

The grapes for this wine come from the 2.68 hectare ‘Champreaux’ single vineyard, located north-east of the commune of Fontenay-Près-Chablis.  He bottles it separately because he likes the depth of fruit and acid that combine to give a wine of great individuality. The soils here are Kimmeridgian and are composed of chalk and clay. The vines are over 30 years old and yield grapes with extremely concentrated flavours. The vineyards are all farmed organically.

The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts for 15 days in both barrel and stainless steel tank. All of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and 10 months of lees ageing in 500 litre barrel and stainless steel.

Golden yellow in colour with aromas of citrus and floral notes with vanilla nuances from the oak ageing. The palate is rich and intense, balanced by a refreshing acidity and ending with a long and complex finish. It’s bang on for drinking now but there’s no hurry to pull the cork if you want to keep it longer.
