Chardonnay Christophe Patrice

100% Chardonnay grapes purchased from growers in the Chablis region and labelled as VdF Chardonnay .

The fruit is whole-bunch pressed to stainless steel tanks for a cool fermentation with indigenous yeast. The lees from Patrice’s Chablis’ are added to this cuvee to give more complexity and body . Once fermentation is complete the wine is racked off lees and matured in tank for 4 months, without malolactic conversion.

Tasting Notes:

Fragrant and fruity bouquet of honetdew melon and stone fruit. The medium full palate’s rich fruit is balanced by Chablis style mineral notes of citrus and green apple. A soft and crisp finish has a medium length of great clarity and precision.

About the Producer

Domaine Christophe Patrice

A native of Beine in the Chablis region, Christophe Patrice began working on the family estate with his father and uncles in 1996. In 2006 he started his own venture with five hectares of vines.

In 2011 he acquired the Daniel Roblot estate increasing his holdings to 22 hectares with an average vine age of 45 years, the older ones being 50-70 years. The domain has parcels in the communes of Beine, Courgis and Chablis, consisting of  8 ha Petit Chablis, 11 ha Chablis and 3 ha Chablis Premier Cru (including 2 ha Beauregard).

Unlike the majority of Chablis winegrowers, the vines are planted in low density and single guyot pruning is practiced instead of double guyot in order to concentrate on quality over quantity. This care and attention is reflected in the fruit intensity of his wines.

Chemical products are only used when necessary and additional fertilisation is used sparingly, according to the plots individual requirements. They therefore consider that this method of growing vines fits perfectly into the framework of sustainable cultivation.
