Gerard Tremblay, assisted by his wife Helene, is 5th generation winemaker at this 34-hectare estate located in Chablis. Most of the vines are situated in the best premier cru and grand cru appellations and the wines are some of the most sought-after in the region. A meticulous winemaker working from a superb new winery, Gerard is renowned for drawing out the typicity of the various appellations and his wines are a true reflection of the terroir from which they come. While most of the wines are sold locally, a limited amount is exported and have deservedly drawn the attention of such notable critics as Robert Parker, Guide Hachette and Revue des Vins de France. This particular Chablis is from 20-30 year-old vines and is steely and bright with a pronounced minerality. A clear pale gold in the glass with aromas of green and red apples and a hint of oyster shell. On the palate, fresh and crisp with notes of lime. A beautifully balanced wine, fleshy and ripe with a distinctly mineral finish. Great with lemon thyme gougères, blackcurrant and cassis cured salmon or wild rabbit in a mustard sauce.
