Classic Chablis from a great vitage. Mineral, freshly cut citrus, a whiff of smoke/gun flint, yum! one of the oldest names in the book. Someone pass the oysters!
  • Established since 1850, the Alain Geoffroy estate is a family business growing around 50 hectares of vines and producing Chablis wines that uphold the tradition and authenticity of the terroir: fresh and fruity wines with a great mineral imprint.

    Today, at the Alain Geoffroy estate, we continue to take good care of our vines so that they give us not simply thirst-quenching wines but subtle and elegant Chablis. All our Chablis are produced on Kimmeridgian geological zones (Jurassic period): our wine’s aromatic richness and strong mineral content comes from this incredible potential of the soil.GRAPE VARIETY: Chardonnay 100 %

    Tasting Note:
    Golden, shiny, radiant and limpid colour. The nose is dense and fragrant with subtle vanilla and spicy, dried and fresh fruit notes… a pretty demonstrative and delicate nose. Both rich and fine, with subtle spicy and toasted notes, a flavoursome taste successfully combining mineral tones and richness, ending with remarkable complexity where the woodiness supports the wine.

Excellent minerally Chablis

To be true Chablis the wine has to exhibit what i call K Factor. That is Kimeridgian Stone. This wines has a pale yellow colour with green tinges at the rim. The nose is minerally with some spice and lots of K Factor. The palate shows stone fruits and an abundance of crisp acid . The finish is long and persistent. Like the 2010, which i'm still drinking this wine will develop more complexity with age and is a good cellaring proposition but because it is beautifully balanced can be enjoyed now with white meats or fish
