A 25ha domaine certified organic, we were delighted to find expressive, good value wines and cremants produced by the increasingly respected Dominique Gruhier. Working with very low levels of sulphur, the wines have a purity lifted by the chalky kimmeridgean minerality. For the cremants, the approach is to pick later and use minimal sugar in the dosage. The vibrancy of these sparkling wines shows their success here. Dominique’s aim has always been the expression of site. After 10 years of working organically he feels that this site signature has been achieved.

About this product +

Producer >

Hailing from the village of Epineuil just ten minutes northeast of Chablis, this is a domaine for which global warming has given opportunity. A 25ha domaine certified organic, we were delighted to find expressive, good value wines and cremants produced by the increasingly respected Dominique Gruhier. Working with very low levels of sulphur, the wines have a purity lifted by the chalky kimmeridgean minerality. For the cremants, the approach is to pick later and use minimal sugar in the dosage. The vibrancy of these sparkling wines shows their success here. Dominique’s aim has always been the expression of site. After 10 years of working organically he feels that this site signature has been achieved.

Viticulture >

Organic (certified, 2015). 9,500 vines per hectare, tilled 3-4 times per year, herbal tea and manure treatments.

Winemaking >

"No sorting because the grapes were perfect. Gentle and long pressing. juice splitting. Fermentation natural in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks and in 400 and 600 liter half barrels. BREEDING : Aging on fine lees for 8 months, assembly, cold treatment, drawing, foaming and disgorging in our cellars."
