Description

Alain Geoffroy Chablis Villages 2018

Alain Geoffroy Chablis Villages has a bright, light gold colour with greenish glints. The bouquet is full of rich honeysuckle and white floral aromas before opening up to reveal sweet, mellow fruit scents. Powerful on the palate with a strong flinty mineral character and crisp acidity that enhances the fruit (green apple, pear) and fine vegetal (celery, fresh cut grass) flavours. Each sip speaks of summer, no matter when you drink it.

100% Chardonnay. Chablis and its vineyards are on the sunshine route, mid-way between Beaune and Paris, at the gates of Burgundy. Honoré Geoffroy developed the vineyards over the villages of Beine and La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, in the heart of the Chablis cineyards, around 1850. Alain Geoffroy expanded the property and took it to Estate level and now have 50 hectares of vineyards. The fruit for this wine comes from a 20–40 years-old vineyard with a south-east exposure and Kimmeridgian limestone soils.

After a manual harvest and arrival at the cellar, the grapes immediately go through pneumatic pressing. After pressing, the juice is put into stainless steel tanks for static sludge removal for 24 hours to eliminate the larger particles. Then, the wine undergoes alcohol fermentation and, a little later in the winter, malolactic fermentation in large temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine ages on thin lees in stainless steel tanks for 5–7 years, depending on vintage. Stainless steel tanks help to preserve the freshness and typical character of Chablis wines.
