Chablis 2015, Domaine Brigitte Cerveau 

A wonderful balance between vibrant, citrus fruit and the characteristic salty minerality. Crisp, dry and textured on the palate with a fine, lingering finish.

Producer Note

In 1975, Jean-Pierre Ellevin established the current domain, which is situated in the village of Clichée, in the heart of the Chablis appellation and decided to specialise in the production of Chablis. Jean-Pierre is the fifth generation of the family to own and run the domain with expertise having been passed from father to son over the years. In the 1980’s Jean-Pierre married his wife, Brigitte Cerveau, also from a winemaking family with a history dating back to the French revolution. Today, Jean-Pierre and Brigitte cultivate 16 hectares, which is exclusively Chardonnay. Together with their son Alexandre Ellevin, who heads up the winemaking, they are passionate about respecting tradition whilst producing excellent, aromatic wines, which are a true reflection of their origin.

Vintage

2015 is a very typical Chablis vintage, with well balanced citrus fruit and minerality.

Vineyard

The Chablis grapes producing this wine, come from a parcel of 40 year old vines.  The vineyards are managed using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. No weedkillers are used and the vineyards and carefully farmed three times a year in order to respect the soil biodiversity.

Winemaking

Traditional vinification techniques were used to produce this Chablis, whilst following a philosphy of minimal intervention. The grapes were vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of between 10 and 15 months, preserving the primary flavours and characteristics of the terroir. The wine was kept on its fine lees in order to achieve the perfect balance between fruit and a rounded texture. Unoaked in style, the wine was then rested in stainless steel, to retain the freshness prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note

A fine example of quintessential Chablis, with a wonderful balance between the vibrant, citrus fruit and the characteristic salty minerality. Crisp, dry and elegantly textured on the palate with a fine, lingering finish.

Serving Suggestion

The classic pairing with oysters or creamy seafood dishes.
