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.
This comes from vines planted on the high, steep slopes of the two banks of the Serein, between 230 and 280 meters above sea level. A pale golden colour, a bouquet of white flowers, citrus fruits and flint, a fresh and very dry wine.
