Just as the vineyards of Chablis are a blend of tradition and modern techniques, our vinification is based on an age-old respect for nature’s products – the grapes, the must and the wine – allied with the stringent controls and in-depth skills that the development of oenological techniques offers us. The process of vinification is guided by a respect for the terroirs, the vintages, the age of the vines and the state of health of the grapes – in other words, adapted for every’ cuvée’. Most of our wines are vinified in vats with temperature control, but this is used sparingly – depending on each individual ‘cuvée’. For the Montée de Tonnerre and Mont de Milieu Chablis premiers crus, between 20% and 40% is vinified in new casks (French oak, slow heated), then blended eight months later with the portion of the original cuvée that was vinified in the vat. This same care is taken with the wines right through to final bottling. The wine is handled carefully to avoid the traumas of too much pumping and filtration, while the new bottling line was chosen and installed to add the finishing touch to the vinification with quality bottling. The plant is equipped with a filtration pallet, a new bottle rincer and a holding plateau that guarantees impeccable corking. And from the grape harvest up to bottling, all that tradition and all that technique provide the support for what has always been the attraction of the Domain’s wines – taste and the knack and temperament of the wine-maker making his own wine! After all, the greatest respect we can show our customers is by offering them wine that we enjoyed making, and that we took a lot of trouble to make. A wine that we are proud to propose, sharing the pleasures that it has given us. Read less
