"Domaine Camille & Laurent Schaller is a family estate based in Préhy, in the heart of Chablis. Laurent and his son Camille cultivate three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Aligoté and Pinot Noir. Their parcels are located in the villages of Préhy, Courgis, Chablis, Poilly sur Serein, Chichée (Premier Cru Vaucoupin) and Beine (Premier Cru Vau de Vey). The vines are planted in a clay and limestone soil which is typical of Chablis, which brings great finesse, minerality and purity to the wines. The Schaller family cultivates its vines using sustainable practices, working the soil to avoid the use of herbicides.
Once picked (Premier Cru are hand-harvested), the fruit is immediately loaded by gravity into a pneumatic press where they are gently crushed in order to obtain a perfect extraction of juice without any risk of oxidation. The juice settles for 12 to 24 hours, before alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in tanks. Wines are then aged on fine lees for 8-10 months, in stainless steel tanks for Petit Chablis and Chablis, and partly in oak barrels for Chablis Vieilles Vignes."
