Domaine Cyril Gautheron Frissons Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017
In 2016, Gautheron had lost so much fruit from frost (fun fact – Frissons means frozen in French) that they had to source their fruit from outside their vineyard. Such was the success of the first release that they did it again in 2017 with this wine, Cyril Gautherson Frissons Bourgogne Chardonnay. New world in style but still with the hallmark of a great old world French wine, it has clean fresh fruit with a nuance of complexity and richness.
Domaine Gautheron is located in Fleys, a village of 150 inhabitants surrounded by Chablis eastern hills. It covers 30 hectares of vines under three AOP: Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru on four climats: Vaucoupin, Les Fourneaux, Mont de Milieu and L’Homme Mort.
This estate where Cyril Gautheron Frissons Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017 is made is a family owned and operated business for more than seven generations. Today Cyril Gautheron, supported by his father Alain, is making one of the appellation’s finest wines.
Cyril Gautheron focusses on the expression of terroir to make graceful wines, which respect the crispy and traditional characteristics of Chablis. From the classical Chablis to the crystal-cut Premier Cru climat wines, the Domaine is highly recognized among wine international trade.
Cyril’s wines can be found in the world’s best restaurants and bars: Hakkasan in London, Gordon Ramsay’s Le Pressoir d’Argent in Bordeaux, and Maria Loca in Paris, just to name a few.
