Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Elaboration: After a rigorous settling, the alcoholic fermentation took place in good conditions for a good month. Then, the malolactic fermentation is triggered naturally. The aging of this wine was a short year on fine lees in stainless steel vats. This allowed the wine to have all its roundness and aromatic complexity.
Tasting Notes: Light gold dress, bright. Nose dominated by almond, white fruits, lemon, linden honey. Palate with ample fruitiness, stimulating, adorned with a generous substance, a fatty and tender finish, a salivating freshness. Burgundy rich, complete.
Vincent Wengier is a fourth-generation Chablis winemaker who, along with his wife, Sophie, has produced wine under his name since 2018. Domaine Vincent Wengier was first established in 1950 and is located in the southwest region of the appellation, in the village of Préhy, two hours southeast of Paris.
The Wengiers manage 27 hectares of vines, spread over four appellations.
They hold HVE (high environmental value) certification to promote fauna and flora within the vineyard. Their careful attention to detail in the vineyards has also earned them organic certification, effective in 2023.
