Place: Chablis, France
Domaine Paul Nicolle is located in the village of Fleys which sits four kilometres east of the main township. Leaving Chablis, the grand cru hills Montée de Tonnerre and Mont de Milieu sit in view to the left before the road drops away into a relatively steep valley with 1er Cru Les Fourneaux appearing on the opposing slope.
Paul started the domaine with a single hectare and as his son Robert, and his grandson Charly, have taken over the operations, holdings have now grown to 20 hectares. The wines are classic but with volume, minerality, strong iodine character and truly long length.
The Paul Nicolle Chablis is a classic expression of the famous Chardonnay from Northern Burgundy. Light and crisp, it's a textbook bottle that shows why real Chablis is famous around the world.
