Chardonnay, Paul Nicolle
The Paul Nicolle Chablis is a classic expression of the famous Chardonnay from Northern Burgundy. Light and crisp, it's a textbook bottle that shows why real Chablis is famous around the world. The domaine is managed by Charly Nicolle and his wife Lucie Thieblement, who used to be a chef at the Cote Saint Jacques, a nearby Michelin starred restaurant. The two met when Charly was delivering wine, and years later, Lucie is now working side by side with Charly at the winery.
100% Chardonnay from vines averaging 25-30 years in age grown on Kimmeridgian clay limestone soils. Mostly south-facing parcels in the 4 communes of Chablis, Fleys, Chichee and Beru. Vinification in stainless steel with native and selected yeasts depending on the vintage. Aged on the lees for 12-18 months in stainless steel. The Chablis is always a blend of several parcels in order to obtain the best possible balance between the liveliness of the young vines and the roundness of the older vines; the minerality of the limestone terroirs and the richness of the terroirs with more clay.
