Domaine Tremblay | Chablis from the estate

Gérard Tremblay is the 5th generation owner of this estate in Chablis. Under his leadership, the property has grown from 30 acres to 100 acres, of which 30 acres are first growths and grand crus. Gérard is a passionate and purist. He uses sustainable viticulture "Lutte raisonnée" and takes great care in ploughing to preserve the Terroir. This gives the Chardonnay a special and vibrant personality due to the subsoil (Kimmeridgian limestone/fossilized shells). Gérard's son, Vincent, began to take charge of the vinification.

In 1990, they built a new cellar and an underground barrel cellar. The use of oak is well thought out. Gérard does not like a dominant oak flavour, but recognises that oak is necessary to bring out the secondary aromas of the terroir. The Tremblays have designed their winery to use gravity throughout the winemaking process. The grapes are loaded directly into the pneumatic presses, where they are gently crushed before being cold-settled for 12 hours. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, depending on the vintage. Just under a third of Vaudésir is aged in oak barrels for 12 to 14 months.
