The culture of exception
5 hectares of vines cultivated in an environmentally friendly way
Located in the heart of the Premier Cru Fourchaume, in Fontenay-Près-Chablis, Joëlle Vrignaud cultivates the exception of a terroir, the prestige of a region and the unique know-how of the Chablis winegrowers. In 1992 she decided to abandon the sale of bulk wine and bottled the first wines of Domaine Joëlle Vrignaud.
Today, it cultivates 5 hectares of vines spread over the appellations Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume and Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot. The practice of organic farming and the desire to do very little in the winemaking process is Joëlle's trademark. Its objective is to offer wines that reflect the expression of Chardonnay in an exceptional terroir and to preserve the unique style of Chablis wines.
It is an earth of predilection for Chardonnay, the only grape variety authorized to produce all white wines of the vineyard of Chablis.
Chardonnay prefers the rather marno-calcareous soils where it develops all its elegance and the delicacy of its aromas. It produces pretty gold bunches, so small as those of Pinot, but were more lengthened and lessclosed.
Its grains are small, but rich in a white juice deliciously sweet. Its leaves are characterized by two big nervures edging exactly the round neckline as the tail (sinus pétiolaire).
Young Chardonnay develops aromas of haw, straw and hazelnut.Produced in oak Barrels, it introduces then a spread with butter palet, toasted and grilled very appreciated. When Lady-nature was generous with it, the honey and the quince are also part of its attributes. It has a fat, a largeness in characteristic and remarkable mouth. Its medium acidity blends in easily with this glycerol.
At the same time fresh and fruity, it is characterized by notes of citrus fruits in the nose and mouth full of roundness.
This wine is completed for the aperitif but also for all your summer meals.
Pale yellow colour with lime tints. Citrus flavours mixed with white flower aromas. A touch of nervousness that highlights a fruity and balanced character.
This wine can be served as aperitif and combines well with cold or hot fish dishes, poultry in white sauce and veined cheeses.
