Story

The Gueguen family lives in Préhy, about 7 km south-west of Chablis. This winery is young, established in January of 2013 by both Céline and Frédéric whom had preivously been working for larger wine estates in Chablis over the course of 15 years. The Gueguen’s are passionate about conservation and respect towards the environment, aiming to create a wine representative of its terroir. Finally, they love sharing their knowledge and estate with their visitors, and have even set up their own Bed and Breakfast.

Vineyard

The continental climate, warm summers, cool winters and spring freezes, combined with a very chalky soil, make Chablis one of France’s most distinctive wines. The vineyard is located in the villages of Chichée and Préhy. It is south-east facing with soils of Kimmeridgian (famous fossils of Oyster Exogyra-Virgula) and layers of Jurassic clay and limestone. The average age of the vines is 40 years.

Vinification

The fruit is mechanically picked, followed by a gentle Direct Press. The juice is fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. Malolactic are achived by December. The wines are then maturing on fine lees until the Spring. The wines are kept about 10 months in 100% stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruitiness of the wine. Collage and filtration before bottling at the estate.

Tasting Notes

A yellow color with bright reflections with a refined fruity nose. A powerful minerality with aromas of almond and leather as well as ripe
fruits.

Food Pairing

A perfect compliment to salmon, lobster salad or with goat cheese. You can keep it in your cellar for 10 to 15 years. Serve at 50-53F.
