Climat of the Premier Cru Vaillons on the left bank, Les Lys is the historical Premier Cru that formerly 
belonged to French Royalty. Located on clay soils, its atypical orientation produces 
delicate wines.

• SOIL AND SUBSOIL OF CHABLIS: Chalky clay, marl, and marly limestone from 
the Kimmeridgian era (the upper Jurassic geological period, 160-140 million years 
ago), rich in minerals and oyster fossils, giving the mineral character typical of the 
wines of Chablis.
• SOIL AND SUBSOIL OF THE APPELLATION: A clay slope on Kimmeridgian subsoil.
• SURFACE AND LOCALISATION OF THE APPELLATION: 12 hectares on the left 
bank of the Serein River, to the north of Les Vaillons.

            [WineMakingNotes] => KNOW-HOW • HARVEST: Manual
• VINIFICATION: Use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the quality of the 
wine. Brief (1½ - 2 hours) pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle separation of the solid and liquid parts of the 
grape. Very light static settling of the juice to preserve enough fine lees so that the alcoholic and malolactic 
fermentations can occur naturally. The must is run into French oak barrels (aged of 6 years in average) for 40 to 
50% of the harvest. The remainder is vinified in small stainless steel vats.
• MATURING: 13 to 14 months, of which 5 to 6 months on fine lees in French oak barrels, for 40 to 50% of the 
harvest. The end of maturation occurs in small stainless steel vats.

excellence by retaining the purity of terroir and adhering to 
rigorous and meticulous attention to details in all areas of production. The  78ha of vineyards, separated into 90 parcels offer huge scope for the wines at all levels. Over half of the vineyards are Premier and Grand Cru sites. Two thirds of the domaine have been grown 
organically since 2006, with biodynamic methods practised since 2010. In 2015 the Domaine was certified with the highest level of HVE. The resulting terroir expression and life in the glass highlights the relevance of these techniques in the vineyard. Cellar Master Didier Séguier uses no oak on his regional Chablis, with just older barrels of over 6 years on the Premier and Grand Cru wines.
“Minerality is a bit of a Chablis trademark and it shines through with a thousand nuances in each of our wines.”
