Winemaker Notes

Made from some of the oldest vines on the property (60-70 years old), on Kimmeridgien soil, this wine is fermented in tank and then spends several months in oak. It has plenty of saline and mineraled notes, as well as fresh, floral aromas and appley fruit, while a touch of vanilla adds complexity on the palate. Delightful wine.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Crisp tones of apricot and Mirabelle gain ripeness from nose to palate in this bright-fruited Chardonnay. Medium bodied and balanced briskly by chalky, stony minerality and pert lime acidity, this approachably priced Chablis is ready now but will likely hold well through 2027. Editors’ Choice.

JM 91
Jasper Morris
From 60 to 65 year old vines located high up at the far end of Fleys, before getting to 1er Cru Vaucoupin. Made in wood (30%) and stainless steel, assembled before the harvest for another 6 months in tank. This has notably more density, the wood makes, but the slightest inflection, good fruit weight behind, length and depth.
Barrel Sample: 88-91

Alain Gautheron, France

Domaine Gautheron is situated in the village of Fleys, to the east of the town of Chablis and overlooked by the steep slopes of les Fourneaux. This estate of only 25 hectares has been in the Gautheron family for five generations. The domaine makes traditional Chablis, with fermentation and maturation avoiding wood to preserve the fresh steely flavours and unique influence of the chalky vineyard soils. The old vine cuvees exceed 65 years old and are partly matured in oak. Since 2009 a 0.4ha plot of organic vineyard has produced the cuvee Emeraude.

Chablis

Burgundy, France

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
