Description

Unoaked Burgundy Chardonnay from Chablis producers Loïc and Yannick Vilain.

The cousins take grapes from two vineyards either side of their home in Chemilly-sur-Serein, in the towns of Béru to the north and Vermenton to south, on the right bank of the Serein river that runs through Chablis. Grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks then rested on the lees for 6 months prior to bottling, a process designed to let the purity of the fruit shine through.

Pale gold in colour, let this warm a little to get the full aromatics but you should get pineapple, stone fruit (nectarine) and a hint of orange peel and mango. The palate is supple and rounded, a roll-in-the-mouth feel with soft melon and subtle tropical fruit flavours, a hint of mandarin and a cleansing twist of citrus on the finish.

Crisp, fresh and appetising, this makes a great aperitif or serve up with raw seafood, ceviche or sashimi.

Producer: Château de Chemilly

Château de Chemilly was established in 1973 by the Vilain family and is today run by Loïc and Yannick Vilain, son and nephew of the founder. Loïc and Yannick took over in 2013 and set about introducing technology in both the winery and vineyards, reducing the amount of work and intervention required in the vineyards and improving the quality and consistency of the wines. High Environmental Value (HVE) level 3 certification was achieved in 2020.

Vines are cultivated in five towns in the Chablis region with the appellations Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru. The guys take a light-touch approach to their craft, preferring to allow the terroir, vines and grapes to do the talking, with minimal intervention. The stylish packaging is a cut above what you would expect from this most traditional of European wine regions.
