2017-18 Clotilde Davenne Chablis
About the maker

Clotilde Davenne doesn't come from a winemaking family, a self taught winemaker with experience working for one of the most esteemed Chablis producers - Jean-Marc Brocard.

Clotilde's focus has always been on pure terroir expression. That is, using a little techniques or manipulation of the wine after it leaves the vineyard. After acquiring some land herself in 2005, locals told her she was wasting her time. It now includes a mosaic of beautiful vineyards: Bourgogne AOC, Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru and Chablis Grand Cru, as well as 100 year old Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyard is sheltered from winds, on a steep slope of Kimmeridgian with soil, peppered with fossilised oysters from when the sea covered the Paris basin150 million years ago. Clotilde farms her vineyard organically, without the use of chemicals, with almost all of her production is harvested by hand. You won't find any oak barrel in her cellars however, as Clotilde is a big believer of stainless steel vinification for her Chablis, focusing on purity and terroir expression. All Davenne's wines undergo malolactic fermentation for complexity, with use of the lunar calendar for racking and bottling, then light filtration.
