The story of Chablisienne begins back in 1923. Under the leadership of Abbé Balitrand, a number of winegrowers joined forces to better withstand the economic difficulties of the period. Together, in the middle of the Chablis vineyards, they created a cooperative winery to market their wines. La Chablisienne, in true pioneer spirit, has never ceased to meet a wide range of challenges in areas as diverse as winegrowing and winemaking, human resources and marketing. It is the meticulous work of all those involved that gives wines which constantly improve with the passage of time.
The vines used to make this wine are situated in the villages of Beines, Béru, Chablis, La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Chemilly sur Serein, Chichée, Collan, Courgis, Fleys, Fontenay, Lignorelles, Ligny le Châtel, Maligny, Poilly, Préhy, Saint Cyr les Colons, Viviers and Villy. The vines used are on average around 20 years old.
The must undergoes cold settling before fermentation which happens in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is also allowed to occur. The wine is then left to mature on its fine lees, in tanks.
This is a clear and brilliant wine with golden-yellow colour. A well-developed and mature bouquet reveals white and yellow-fleshed fruits. A very distinguished mineral note becomes more noticeable on aeration. Good aromatic length. Very pleasant volume in the mouth accompanied by freshness and crisp, well-defined fruitiness. The ripeness detected in the nose returns elegantly in the mouth. Good persistence in the finish.
