Domaine Gueguen Petit Chablis 2020 - Burgundy, France
Varietals: 100% Chardonnay
The nose is aromatic, structured and offers intensity. It reveals notes of crunchy vine peach and small notes of apple associated with hints of yellow fruits. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced, well-built and offers a beautiful fat, a good structure, a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful freshness, a good definition as well as straightness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh peach, crushed brugnon and crushed pear associated with small notes of fresh/crushed mirabelle as well as a subtle hint of quince, butter as well as an imperceptible toasted hint. Good length. A beautiful wine full of finesse.
Domaine Gueguen is among the newest estates in Chablis. Most of their vineyards are located southwest of Chablis, around the village of Préhy and the winery is based in La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, a village located further north. In 2013, Fréderic Gueguen's combined the vineyards he inherited from his family with the ones from his wife, Céline Brocard, daughter of renown Chablis producer Jean-Marc Brocard. In addition to their family vineyards, they signed long-term contracts with retired wine growers who trust them to handle their land. The total size of the Gueguen estate is now 55 acres and they strive to produce classic mineral wines with sustainable farming practices.
