Chablis and Auxerrois Vineyard is a mosaic of terroirs with demanding climates. The diversity of plots is a challenge for the winemakers, and the balance between soil and micro-climate differs everywhere. They must have a unique understanding of what happens when a vineyard comes to life, by observing the wine and bringing all needed care to help the grapes ripen. Ripeness is essential to transfer the terroir to the bottle. The soil is ploughed to encourage the wines to extend their roots more deeply and therefore better express the typicity of the Terroir.
The hillside vines grow on chalky clay soil, rich in minerals due to aquatic fossils. Much of the growing area is ploughed to conserve a maximum of the micro-organisms essential for soil health. Céline & Frederic now own 25 ha and grow 5 different grapes : Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon, Aligoté, Sacy.
