Product Description

WINE ESTATE

  • The Chablis vineyards are amongst the oldest vineyards in France. In the 12th century, the monks of Citeaux cultivated and carefully tended their vineyards, which produced agreeable nectar. Today, at Domaine Alain Geoffroy, they continue to cherish their vines so that they produce wines that are not just thirst-quenchers but wines that provide everyone with pleasure.

SOIL

  • Kimmeridgian clay (Jurassic period) composed of calcareous clay and oyster fossils.
