Domaine Alexande is a family business handed down over three generations. Brothers Guy and Olivier run the estate today which is set over 13 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Chablis spread over four municipalities: Beines, La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Lignorelles and Villy. The vineyards are worked with great care and yields are kept low to produce expressive wines with concentrated fruit.
Domaine Alexandre Chablis 2018
A bright and lively Chablis, brand new to us! Think freshness, citrus fruit with a streak of minerality. Pair with clamchowder, oysters, scallops, crayfish – buy the wine and then head to the fishmonger!
Grapes are harvested manually before being sorted and then pressed by pneumatic press. The juice is racked over a period of 24-30 hours before being filtered and undergoing alcoholic fermentation in tank under temperature control. A final clarificaiton of the wine is carried out before maturation and then bottling on the estate at the end of July.
