Domaine Oudin Chablis Premier Cru Vaucoupin 2019 13% 750ml

Harvest with a machine for our wines. Our winemaking is just a simple transformation process. The grapes arrive quickly at the cellar to be pressed with modern machines to keep the quality of the juice. The natural fermentations and the aging of one year on lees occur in stainless steel to develop the complexity, minerality and vivacity offered by the kimmeridgian soils and our cold climate. We avoid using barrels to keep the freshness of the wine. Some years we can do a gentle fining with bentonite when necessary. The wines are cold stabilized during winter when we open the doors of the cellar. We may do a plate filtration.

Domaine Oudin was established in the late 1980s by Christiane and Jean-Claude Oudin, professionals looking to escape Paris to a small holding in Chichée in Chablis, belonging to Christiane’s parents. Today Domaine Oudin is still very much in family hands, run since 2007 by their daughter Nathalie Oudin with her sister Isabelle joining in 2012. The oldest vineyards, the premier crus of Vaugiraut and Vaucoupin, and the Les Serres, a vineyard selection from plantings adjacent to Vaucoupin, are around 70 years of age. The AOC Chablis is sourced from 45 year old plantings on the left bank of the Serein, since back in the 1970s and 1980s, Chablis as a region was still growing, and new plantings were permitted. The Domaine remains small at 9.5 hectares, farmed organically on the poor, limestone-dominant soils, without herbicides or chemical fertilisers. Yields are strictly controlled with short prunning and reduction of the number of buds throughout the growing season. Nathalie is proud to flaunt the fact that the winery is equipped with stainless steel tanks only, that is, there is not a single oak barrel. All of the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, and extended ageing sur lie contributes texture and complexity, and keeps the wines fresh and sprightly, and intensely minerally.
