Domaine Jean-Claude Courtault

Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

    • Description :

      Vinified in small steel tanks and partly aged in 3-year old barrels.

      A native of Touraine, Jean-Claude Courtault arrived at Lignorelles in 1974 to work as Vineyard Manager for one of the village's wine estates. In 1984, JC Courtault seized the chance to buy 1.5 hectares of 4 year old vines in the Chablis area. Next, he rented a plot of land also in the Chablis appellation, which he then planted with the help of his wife, Marie-Chantal. And so the Estate Jean-Claude Courtault was born. Ever since, JC has been perfecting his craft which he now shares with his daughter St├ęphanie and her husband Vincent Michelet. The Domaine now has 20 hectares and produces Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis Grand Cru.

      Round and expressive on the palate with fine minerality. Ripe fruits and fresh almond aromas lead to toasted bread on the finish. Great balance of power and delicacy. Perfect to drink now, but will age for several more years.
