Domaine Vincent Wengier Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

Domaine Vincent Wengier Chablis 1er Cru “Vaillons”


  • Chablis Premier Cru takes its name from the Latin term valis, meaning small valley.
  • With its south-eastern exposure, Vaillons mainly benefits from the sun in the morning.
  • The vineyard consists of shallow soil which allows the grapes to ripen quickly. On the deeper soils have a high concentration of compact Kimmeridgian limestones.

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay

Elaboration: The vines have a south/east exposure, they mainly benefit from the sun in the morning. Slow fermentation in good conditions for about a month. Malolactic fermentation is triggered naturally. Aging is done in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats on fine lees to bring to the wine all its roundness and aromatic complexity.

Tasting Notes: Golden yellow in color. Very inviting nose of white and flinty flowers. The mouth is round and enveloping with a charming style.
