Gueguen Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot
Domaine Gueguen is widely regarded as an up and coming star of the region. Céline and Frédéric Gueguen both worked for large wine estates in Chablis for 15 years before setting up their own domaine which today consists of 35 parcels of vines spread across 23 hectares. The winery was established in 2013 in the hamlet of Préhy, just 7 km South-West of Chablis itself.
The region of Chablis rests on distinctive Kimmeridian soil dating back to the Jurassic ages. The Grand Cru Blanchot is one of the region's greatest vineyards, a steep, stony south-east facing vineyard above the town of Chablis itself, and known for producing wines of great intensity. Céline and Frédéric use organic practices in the vineyard, tending each vine by hand and working with low yields to drive quality and concentration.
The grapes are pressed directly followed by cold settling then a cool fermentation and maturation in stainless steel.
Tasting Note: A concentrated, tightly-wound traditionally-styled Chablis of great minerality and length with muscular notes of lime leaf, wet stone and richer hints of dried peach appearing with air. Will age beautifully.
Food Match: Ideal with grilled lobster, fruits de mer and goat's cheese.
