A daring gamble that paid off
Dubreuil chardonnay, White wine
The vineyard’s chalky soil is suitable for growing chardonnay.
Freshness and precision
Vin de France 100% Chardonnay
The first chardonnay was planted in 2011 under the influence of Ralph Eads who is a fan of this grape variety. Clos Dubreuil was the only vineyard at that time in the region to do so. The first harvest took place in 2013 and is the end result of a challenge.

This wine, perfect with gourmet cuisine, is appreciated for its citrus notes such as grapefruit, lemon and tangerine which are typical of chardonnay. Both tasty and well-defined, salinity appears in the finish revealing the soil’s character. Its barrel maturation time is voluntarily reduced to preserve the grape variety’s typicity.
A wine that expresses the soil’s salinity
Chardonnay has never been harvested so late at Clos Dubreuil, as the harvest took place on September 10th and 14th, 2021. The wine was aged for 10 months in barrels (30% new and 70% wine previously used for ageing). The bouquet is subtle and very inspired by the varietal via yellow fruit nuances and lime followed by nuances of flintstone. It has a lively and refreshing attack. The wine is balanced, slightly creamy and well-sustained by its acidity which makes it pleasantly refreshing thanks to the low pH.
It has a juicy, refreshing and persistent finish
