Viticulture

The Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is produced from 50 years old vines located in the heart of Chablis. Guyot pruning including green short pruning, canopy management and manual harvesting.

Soil

The main bedrock comes from the Jurassic epoch, or more precisely the Kimmeridgean age (150 million years ago). Deposits of tiny oysters can be found in the rock, which were left by the warm, shallow sea that once covered this territory.

Vinification

In stainless steel vats in order to preserve the typical character of Chablis and to let the minerality express itself completely. After the fermentations, the Premiers Crus are matured on fine lies for 6 months. The next steps are the fining through bentonite if necessary (a type of clay that absorbs the proteins of the wine and clarifies it in a natural way) and the cold stabilization to favour the precipitation of the tartaric acid and then avoid the eventual deposit in the bottle during the maturation of the wine. Before bottling, the wine is filtered through a Kieselguhr filter (Diatomaceous earth that clarifies the wine in a natural way).

Aging

Minimum of 6 months of aging
