Chablis lies about 100 miles north of Beaune, roughly half way between the heart of the Cote d’Or and Paris. The region covers an area 9 miles by 12 miles, spread across 27 communes located along the Serein river. The soil is the world famous Kimmeridge clay and chalk. The grand cru vineyards are all on south west facing slopes.
Vincent is now the fourth generation of his family making wines in burgundy and Chablis. His grandfather and father have held very public roles in the administration in Chablis. Traditional winemaking practices and a move to organic production now makes Vincent Sauvestres wines stand out.
