    2022 Domaine Gueguen Chablis

    • $72.00

    Well-balanced and slightly racy. It reveals notes of lemon, quenette and white flowers associated with discreet hints of white peach, limestone/minerality (terroir) as well as an imperceptible hint of almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky, racy, aerial and offers a slight acid frame, a slight unctuosity, minerality, gourmandise a swell as a beautiful finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe yellow peach, apricot and slight touches of quince, ripe Williams pear associated with a discreet hint of lemon, clementine as well as a very discreet hint of quenette. Good length.

    Fruit for the Gueguen Chablis is sourced from seven hectares of vines grown around Préhy, Chichée, Courgis and La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne. Fruit from the well-regarded lieux-dits of Malantes and Pargues (situated between the Montmains and Vosgros 1ers Crus) are also included in the mix. The vineyards mainly face southwest on Kimmeridgian soils with a layer of Jurassic clay and limestone littered with small oysters and fossils. Vinification and maturation occur in stainless steel, with regular lees stirring and full malolactic conversion.
