Product Description

Corrine Perchaud Chablis Premier Cru Vaucoupin is 100 percent Chardonnay.

 

The vineyard The plots are on the Vaucoupin Chichée village. They are very steep and facing south, their average age is 40 years. The total area is 1.45 hectares. The vines are planted on soil Kimmeridgian marl consisting clay and limestone with dominant clay. Winemaking After a slight settling, the juice is put in to achieve its fermentation tank alcoholic and malolactic. It follows a long aging on lees to bring a maximum of complexity of aromas and flavors. If necessary, we make a collage to bentonite to remove proteins and a passing cold which eliminates tartar crystals. Then we perform a tangential filtration is the filtration method most friendly to wine.

The wine will be bottled 16 months after harvest. The relatively high temperatures at the end of winter allowed an early bud vines in early March. With a hot, dry spring flower took place in good conditions. In July, a hailstorm located did some damage to our Fourchaume plot. July and early August, rainy and stormy brought the water needed for the vineyards. The dry and sunny weather of the second half of August brought the grapes to maturity. The harvest began on September 2 under clement skies.

Pairs well with seafood, shellfish.

The Corinne Perchaud Estate
Corinne Perchaud and her husband Jean-Pierre Grossot began working in the Domaine in 1980, but the estate was originally founded in 1920. They are the third generation of winemakers at this family estate, located in the village of Fleys, in the heart of the Chablis appellation.
"A very good to excellent Chablis producer making some wines in tank and others in barrel; the former are outstanding" - Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006

The Corinne Perchaud Vineyard
They farm 18 hectares (44.5 acres) of vines: 13 A.O.C. Chablis and 5 hectares Premier Cru. The wines are only tank fermented, except the Fourneaux that gets 25% barrel fermented wine added into the final blend. The owners take great care to produce exceptional Chablis wine by keeping the lively Chardonnay fruit and the unique mineral quality imparted by the Kimmeridgian soil, the fruity acidity and bouquet in perfect balance. The grapes are harvested by hand and gently pressed in a horizontal pressoir to ensure the fullest extraction and range of flavors and aromas.
