Region: Chablis, FRA
Domaine Gerard Duplessis is one of the premier producers in the Chablis region. A family-owned Domaine since 1895, today their vines are tended by the young and talented Lilian Duplessis, who took over from his father Gerard in 1999. Lilian converted their various plots to organic farming and has taken the family label to stratospheric new heights. Their sites are set exclusively atop the prized Kimmeridgian limestone soils. The wines are pure and impossibly long. These Chardonnays are comparable with anything that the region has to offer.
A clay-limestone soil for these two plots of one hectare each, for a bold, powerful, determined wine. A robust wine that nothing frightens, starting with the passage of time and improves it.
