Sebastien Christophe’s domaine and its vineyards are in the commune of Fyé, across the river from the town of Chablis. The hills are steep and overlook Les Clos, Blanchots and Montee de Tonnerre. Every aspect of the viticulture and vinification is thought out and effected with precision. There is nuance and fine detail in his wines that pleases the toughest connoisseurs and they are nicely concentrated thanks to Sebastien’s understanding of the importance of low yields.
This AC Chablis is fermented and aged in steel, and ages the wine in steel. Sebastien looks for elegance, length, purity and minerality in his wines and has extremely exacting standards. The resulting quality is sensational.
Consistently excellent year after year, the 2019 Chablis is back to it’s crisp, incisive best! Very pure wine graced with good energy and grip in its bright fruit and long, elegant finish. After time in the glass, the wine’s class begins to emerge and it’s saline, citrus and geological qualities build. This is flat out terrific Chablis from Sébastien Christophe. Andrew Guard – Importer
