PRODUCER: Domaine Hamelin WINEMAKER: Thierry Hamelin HISTORY Since 1860, the Hamelin family has been growing vines in Chablis on a Domaine that is now 36-hectare. The family is both truthful to the heritage and traditions of their ancestors while at the same time using modern techniques to bring out the intrinsic qualities of the Chablis terroir. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION The 30 year-old vines yield 60 Hl / hectare for the Chablis AOC. Harvest is done manually (10%) and mechanically (90%). Domaine Hamelin works in a way that is respectful of the environment by adhering to "lutte raisonnée", limiting the use of pesticides and herbicides, the emphasis is put on working the soil naturally. In the thermo regulated winery the must comes out of the press to the tanks by gravity to once again ensure ideal quality. AGEING Wines age in stainless steel tanks.
