Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago. They have now been joined by their daughter Julie – a qualified agricultural engineer and oenologue in her own right. This is a wonderful 50 hectare domaine, all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone – 33 hectares of which are village Chablis. .
