Corinne Perchaud is married to Chablis producer Jean-Pierre Grossot, and together they make a formidable pair. The domaine was established by Jean-Pierre’s grandfather in the 1920s, and in 1980 they bottled their first Chablis. Today, their youngest daughter, Eve, works with them, in keeping with the family tradition. Like Grossot’s, Corinne’s wines are elegant, intense and nervy with superb definition and capacity for ageing
They have a small domaine in the commune of Fleys, just south of Chablis itself, with 18 ha of vineyard divided into 13.35 ha of Chablis and rest belongs to three Premier Crus: Vaucoupin, Fourchaume, and Les Fourneaux Soil is the typical Kimmeridgian soil of Chablis: chalky clay with some marl.
Fourchaume is one of the best known Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis and many feel should be elevated to Grand Cru status. Bright yellow in colour with aromas of honey, lemon and peach. The palate is full and lively, with delicious fruit flavours and textbook minerality running onto the long, refreshing finish.Dodatne informacije (PDF)
