  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • This family-run estate was established in 1850, and the grapes used to produce this 2016 1er Cru were sourced from vines 30-45 years of age. Look for classically articulated notes of mineral, pear and apple on the nose and palate with a dynamic freshness and lift. Alain Geoffroy's Vau-Ligneau is noted for its richness and balance between crisp fruit and minerality.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Fermentation with controlled temperature at 18 ° C in stainless steel tanks, for 3-6 weeks. Malolactic. In some tanks, there is a maturation over the lees for a few months, according to the decisions of the oenologist. Clarification and filtration.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    The nose is lifted but delicate and fresh. The palate is elegant and complex, a pleasant balance between fruit intensity and mineral acidity. The freshness and vibrancy paired with subtle floral notes, lead to a long, mineral-laden finish, perfectly expressing the typical sharpness and charm of Vau-Ligneau wines.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Domaine Alain Geoffroy, located in The village of Beine, near Chablis, produces, harvests and sells white and red wines made from Chardonnay or Pinot Noir grapes. Honoré Geoffroy developed the vineyards over the villages of Beine and La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, in the heart of the Chablis vineyards, around 1850. Alain Geoffroy expanded the property and took it to the level of an Estate. A worthy heir to previous generations, he commited to keeping the traditional family character. Today they have 50 hectares of vineyards throughout the Chablis region, including several parcels of 1er Cru vines. The wines of Alain Geoffroy are immediately recognisable by their finesse, their minerality and their long and detailed finish.
