A passion passed down from generation to generation. The vineyard was at the time only one part of the agricultural activities of our predecessors and the wine produced was drunk by family and friends. Marine and Gervais, our paternal grandparents, began to sell the wines from the domaine in “feuilettes” (132 liter barrels, typical of Chablis) in Auxerre and Paris. Roland was the first to bottle the wines in 1979. It was at that moment that he gave his name to the domaine. Together with Brigitte, our parents then expanded the domaine from 5 hectares to 20 hectares and continued to develop the business in France and abroad. Since 2010, Arnaud and David continue to write the domaine’s history with the enlargement of the cellar in 2012 in anticipation of the domaine’s new projects: Taking the reins of another family domaine (created by our maternal grandparents) in Bourgogne Epineul and Bourgogne Tonnerre.

- Winery Notes

92 pts Vinous

The 2018 Chablis Village, matured for 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% used oak, has a vibrant, fresh, classic Chablis nose that many other growers were not able to achieve in this warm year. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, vibrant and zesty, showing a touch of spice on the elegant finish. This must surely be one of the finest Chablis Village of 2018.

A touch of wet walnut accompanies pear and lemon on this wine's fresh nose. Vivaciousness at the core belies the heat of the 2018 vintage. Yes, there is concentration and some midpalate weight, but salty, preserved-lemon freshness dominates the wine and bright finish.
