The vineyards of Domain de Vauroux cover about 30 hectares, located around Chablis, on slopes facing southeast and southwest receiving an optimal amount of exposure to the sun. The Chardonnay is the only grape variety planted. This cru, produced on 0.70 hectares, is one of the seven Chablis grands crus. Its reputation is well established. All the finesse, all the richness and all the bouquet of a great Chardonnay can be found in this wine. With time, it will develop an unforgettable gun-flint bouquet.
The harvested grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats after settling. Bottling is carried out at least 7 months after the harvest. To ensure only the highest quality fruit goes into the final wine, all the grapes are hand harvested. The wine is also aged in oak barrels. The Grand Cru Bougros of Domain Vauroux needs some ten to fifteen years of ageing to express its typical character.
This wine has a brilliant, light gold hue. The bouquet is very expressive both on the nose and the palate. It displays supple, fat, fresh and fruity body. This is a rich, smooth, charming wine with the long-lingering aromas, typical of the Chablis Grands Crus. It is perfect for special occasions.
Enjoy with green asparagus & truffles in puff pastry, or with good fish and seafood, such as lobster roasted with wild mushrooms, grilled sea bass with caviar, or prawns pan-fried in hazelnut butter.
