The Domaine Aleth is situated in the heart of the Chablis area, close to La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, a small village nestled just next to Chablis. The landscape is composed of dells and wooded hilltops.
Located in northern Burgundy near Auxerre, the Chablis vineyards are alongside a small river aptly named: the Serein ("Serene").
The Chablis region is a limestone plateau cut by valleys. The Premier Crus lie on a stratum dating from the Kimmeridgian (155 millions years BC) with alternating
marl and limestone and tiny deposits of oysters in the rock, reminiscent of the warm and shallow sea which then covered Burgundy.
Mechanical harvest. Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed on arrival at the winery using pneumatic presses. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel
tanks thermo-regulated at 16°C. The wines are aged on fine lees for 9 months in stainless steel.
Bright pale yellow in colour.
Open nose of white fruits with a nice minerality offering complexity.
The palate is well-balanced and the finish is lemonflavoured and fresh.
Perfect with hot oysters or fish in sauce, but also with white meats in sauce (veal, poultry). Sushi pairs perfectly with its minerality. Goat cheese, Blue cheese and Comté.
