Gérard Tremblay, his wife, Hélène, and their son Vincent oversee a domaine that they inherited down a line of five generations. With 35 hectares of vines under production, most of them in the best Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations, their Chablis range is among the most prestigious in the region. Gérard is justly famous for his ability to draw out the typicity of each of his distinct appellations, beautifully expressing the terroir vintage after vintage.
All of their wine is made from their own fruit. Grapes from 15 hectares of 20 year-old Chablis vines are vinified and matured in stainless steel. The grapes from the 40 year-old Premier Cru Montmains is treated with up to 20% new barrels, and the grapes from the tiny 0.6 hectares of Grand Cru Vaudésir is aged in up to 30% new oak barrels.
The domaine has a superb new winery, providing excellent conditions to bring out the quality of the fruit that these vineyards produce. Grapes are brought directly from the fields and put into pneumatic presses. The juice is then left to settle for more than twelve hours before being fermented in stainless steel. The entire work at the winery is done by gravity, avoiding unnecessary manipulations of the fruit or pumping of juices.
