Tasting Notes

The southwestern end of Vaillons delivers a fruity and refined Chardonnay. The bouquet bursts with ripe lime and pear, leading to an expressive palate flowing with citrus flavors. Juicy and succulent, with old vine concentration, this intense and vibrant white would be a match made in heaven with some mushroom risotto. Fourth generation winemaker, Marie-Ange Robin, clearly knows her way around the domain's stunning acres of Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards!

The Producer

Domaine Guy Robin et Fils

In the early 2000s, Marie-Ange Robin had a choice. Stay in Paris and pursue a successful career as a fine art dealer, or return home to Chablis and take the reins of the family winery. Her decision would not only change her family’s fortunes but also preserve a critical piece of Chablis history.

Domaine Guy Robin et Fils today is a winery reborn. Marie-Ange represents the fourth generation of vine growers in the family. It was her father Guy who slowly, parcel by parcel, built up the family estate; yet it is Marie-Ange who has brought this winery to a level of greatness for which it was always destined.

Marie-Ange remembers her parents planting the family’s vines in the late 1950s and 1960s, at a time when other defeated Chablis growers were leaving the village in droves, exhausted by the hard work (and repeated destructive frosts) of this northern wine region. But Marie-Ange’s parents persevered.

Because of her family’s efforts, Domaine Robin today claims the most premier and grand cru vineyard land (second only to neighbouring William Fevre) – not to mention some of the oldest Chardonnay vines – in Chablis. And as a result, Robin Chablis across the board has a seductive, textural quality to it - they are unctuous, weighty, serious Chablis wines.

In short, there are few other estates that promise old-vine Chablis wines of such character and complexity.
