The Chablis Premier Cru Vau de Vey 2008 is vinified by Romain Bouchard at his domaine de la Grande Chaume estate. The location of Vaux de Vey is ideal. Sitting on Kimmeridgian limestone, on the the finest Chablis' favourite terroir. This vintage is marked by a superb conjunction between fat and chalky minerality. It is a great achievement with rich, meaty texture.


Hand harvested, pressing of whole bunches, running off of the juice by gravity, 18 hours static settling of the juice, fermentation without addition of exogenous yeasts in stainless steel vat (70%) at 19°C and in French oak casks (30%) in underground cellars. Aging on fine lees for 11 months with occasional pumping over and stirring of the lees.


Clear, bright appearance.


Floral and slightly smoky on the nose.


On the palate the mineral frame is long lasting and incisive.


Serve between 8 and 10°C.

Salmon tartare, crustaceans, seafood, grilled fish, goats cheeses.

Enjoy up to and including 2018
