The Gautheron family has been cultivating vines in Chablis for five generations. The current head of the Domaine Alain Gautheron, is working with his wife and son Cyril in an effort to carry on the family‘s traditions. This estate makes classic Chablis with a clear light gold colour, glinting with emerald green. In the mouth the wine is dry as apple-parings and steely with perhaps just a delicate hint of violets and mint. Well balanced with lively acidity, the mouth presents notes of hazelnut and biscuits which add a certain charm and length to the finish. If ever a wine smacked of the terroir: the hard white limestone and Kimmeridgean soils, if ever a wine seemed to be a combination of light, stone and water, bright, unyielding and limpid, then Chablis describes that wine. That swathe of acidity will carve through and wash down myriad dishes: from seafood to andouillette chablisienne, snails, curried lamb, fish with sorrel or Comté.
