About The Grower Domaine Vrignaud

Domaine Vrignaud Domaine Vrignaud

Most of Domaine Vrignaud's vines are located in and around the village of Fontenay-près-Chablis with a small percentage grown in Mont de Milieu. Vines range from 3 to 55 years of age, the oldest being reserved for the estate's vieilles vignes Fourchaume 1er cru. Each plot is worked individually and without recourse to fertilisers, allowing the fullest expression and influence of the Kimmeridgian marl soils. In 2008, the estate invested in brand new state of the art presses, maximising the efficiency of fruit processing. Fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats, and every plot is vinified separately, allowing the chef de caves to taste each wine before creating the desired blends. All wines undergo malolactic fermentation.

 

About The Region Burgundy View All Wines From This Region

Le Montrachet Vineyard, Burgundy Le Montrachet Vineyard, Burgundy

Burgundy is a region in eastern France famous for its red and white wines made almost exclusively from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively. Sparkling wine, known as Crômant de Bourgogne, is produced using the traditional method, usually from a blend of these grape varieties.

Vineyards are based on ancient Jurassic Limestone, beginning with the Chalk hills of Chablis and continuing south south-west with a long escarpment forming the famous Côte d'Or. Broadly speaking, the Burgundian climate is continental, which is in direct contrast to that of Bordeaux - winters are noticeably colder and summer days are a little cooler than its famous counterpart.

Arguably Burgundy's greatest wines are produced along the Côte d'Or escarpment, especially those in the Côte de Nuits.

 

About The Grape Variety Chardonnay View All Wines With This Grape

Chardonnay Chardonnay

Chardonnay is arguably the best known and most versatile white grape variety in the wine world. Its traditional homeland is that of Burgundy, where it is responsible for such names as Chablis, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet to name but a few, but it has also found success in almost every wine-producing region the world over - partly due to its versatility, used as it is as a varietal wine, in blends and as a key ingredient of many sparkling wines.

The vine itself produces relatively high-yields and is very hardy. Wines made from chardonnay tend to have high acidity and ripe apple and citrus flavours and offer value at every price point. It lends itself well to oak treatment, and the best examples of high-quality Chardonnay can age and develop over many years.
