Overview of the Wine
Chablis, this name is known all over the world. This réputation is due to the prestigious wines that are produced in this village of 2500 people based in Burgundy.
The Domaine Raoul Gautherin et fils is a family estate transmitted from father to son for many generations. We benefit an ancestral knowledge and a top-of the-range vineyard exposed on the best hillsides.
Our wines are elaborated in a traditional way, to let express our inimitable clay-limestone soil. Our vineyards are cultivated with rigor and passion in a reasoned and sustainable way. No French wine-growing area has pinned its faith more firmly on the facts of geology. The main substrate is Jurassic limestone (specifically, Kimmeridgian limestone) laid down some 150 million years ago. The rock contains deposits of tiny fossilised oyster shells which remind us that Bourgogne once lay beneath a warm ocean. Some particularly valuable Climats produce the Premier Cru.
Chablis: it can be enjoyed young (2-3 years old) with fish or poultry terrines, or with grilled or poached fish. It also goes well with asparagus, which is normally difficult to match, as well as exotic cuisine: it can handle curries or tandoori dishes and it also balances out the mellow and subtle texture of sushi. Or you could simply drink it as a splendid pre-dinner drink.
It harmonizes well with goat cheeses, as well as Beaufort, Comté, or Emmental.
