Chablis AC

Chablis AC, Phillippe Goulley

£17.99

A classic Chablis Chardonnay – with a more aromatic and typically minerally approach than the Petit Chablis. Whereas its little brother comes from the richer soils of the plateau, the Chablis comes from the stonier hillside vineyards where the vine roots are embedded into the rock. The resulting wine is less acidic, fuller bodied and more powerful than the Petit Chablis (which expresses the fruit as much as terroir). Dry, rounded and slightly citric.

Domaine Philippe Goulley

In 1986 Philippe Goulley’s father asked him to come and work with him on the family vineyard as he had only a few years left till retirement. The first four years Philippe worked part-time in the vineyard, and in 1991 decided to relocate to Chablis and become a full time wine producer.

The Chablis vineyards are located in the most northern part of the Bourgogne wine region and were established towards the end of the 9th century by the monks from the Pontigny Abby. In those days the Chablis made a good mass wine.

The Domaine Philippe Goulley extends over 12.5 acres (Petit Chablis 6.2 acres; Chablis 2.5 acres; Chablis 1er Cru Montmains 3 acres; Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 0.8 acres).
