About Domaine De La Chappe
Domaine de La Chappe is located just west of the city Tonnerre in northern Burgundy, near Chablis. Vincent Thomas took over the 2.5 hectares of vineyards in 2003 from his father. He turned the vineyards to organic farming although his father was already working in a pretty traditional way, and he extended his vinification capacity by purchasing organic grapes in the area. Vincent is one of the only 2 natural winemakers in the region.
About the Chablis Region
Chablis (“Shah-blee”) is a Chardonnay-making wine region in the northwest corner of Burgundy, France. Unlike other Chardonnay wines, Chablis rarely uses oak-aging, resulting in a very different style and taste profile. It’s because of Chablis’ renown that the unoaked Chardonnay style is popular worldwide.
Wines from Chablis are frequently described as having citrus and white flower aromas with dry, lean, light-bodied flavors of citrus, pear, minerality, and salinity. Chablis rarely displays flavors of butter – an indication of oak-aging. One of the most desirable traits in quality Chablis is a long, tingly finish of high acidity and flint-like minerality. Much of the lean and elegant taste of Chardonnay from Chablis is attributed to the qualities of the soil, climate, and traditions of the region. Knowing the peculiarities of this area (and there are a few) will help you find better Chablis wine.
