Description

Domaine Gautheron is situated in the village of Fleys, to the east of the town of Chablis and overlooked by the steep slopes of les Fourneaux. This estate of only 25 hectares has been in the Gautheron family for five generations. The domaine makes traditional Chablis, with fermentation and maturation avoiding wood to preserve the fresh steely flavours and unique influence of the chalky vineyard soils. The old vine cuvees exceed 65 years old and are partly matured in oak. Since 2009 a 0.4ha plot of organic vineyard has produced the cuvee Emeraude.

The Chablis is pale straw in colour, it has fresh and floral aromas of white peach and pineapple with hints of citrus and green apples. On the palate, delicious notes of nectarine and peach are presented. This wine is exceptionally well balanced, with a fresh acidity, silky mouthfeel and a lingering finish.

Serves at: 10-13°C

Food matches: This wine is wonderful with crayfish and lobster.
