Domaine Jean-Claude Courtault

Chablis

    • Description :

      The grapes are grown on mostly South/Southwest facing slopes, on Kimmeridgian limestone (composed of Exogyra virgula oyster fossils).

      From Burgundy Report: "A blend of Lignorelles and Beines. Usually more fruit from Lignorelles, structure and minerality comes more from Beines...Tasty wine and with good length too..."

      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.
