"A distinctive aroma of brine and oyster signals this open, rangy white. Shows a good supporting structure, while the mouthwatering acidity drives the lingering finish. Drink now through 2022. 420 cases imported." - BS

Wonderfully delicate wine with yellow fruit aromas. Good structure and balance. Minerality expressed by gunflint notes that reveal the influence of the terroir.

About Jean-claude Courtault
In the beginning: JC Courtault Estate
4.jpg
Originally from Touraine, Jean-Claude Courtault arrived in Lignorelles in 1974 as a chef of culture for a wine estate in the village.

In 1984 , JC Courtault had the opportunity to acquire a vineyard then aged 4, planted in Chablis on 1.5 hectare. Then, he rents a plot of land in the Chablis appellation, which he plants with the help of his wife Marie-Chantal. The domain Jean-Claude Courtault is created .

Domain development
Over the years, while maintaining his responsibilities as a chef de culture, JC Courtault expands and operates his vineyard.
He vinified his wines and began their marketing in bottles in 1987, vintage for which he won a gold medal at the Concours Général des Vins de Paris.

This medal is the beginning of a series of awards that mark the career of JC Courtault, a sign of quality and consistency of his wines.

The 1994 edition of Guide Hachette brings a commercial boost to the Domaine Jean-Claude Courtault, giving three stars to its Chablis 1992.

In 1995, when the estate has a dozen hectares in Chablis and Petit Chablis, Jean-Claude Courtault decides to devote himself full time to its exploitation. He builds a cellar containing all the elements necessary to work in an optimal way.

The estate has continued to develop its vineyard to reach its current area of ​​20 hectares .

The story continues with Domaine Michelet
In 2007, Stephanie the daughter of JC and MC Courtault, returned to work at the Estate accompanied by her husband Vincent Michelet.StAphanie_Vincent_2.jpg

Having been able to acquire lands in Petit Chablis in their name, they decided to create in parallel their own estate " Stéphanie and Vincent MICHELET ". Today, Domaine Michelet operates 6 ha of Petit Chablis and 0.80 ha of Chablis, including a 60-year-old vine.

And as history repeats, the first vintage bottle of Domaine Michelet, a Petit Chablis 2008, received a gold medal at the Chablis Wine Competition.

Mutualisation of means and know-how.
The two areas work in synergy by sharing buildings, equipment, and labor; the vines and the wines are driven in the same way, each bringing his know-how.

Today the two domains work as if there were only one ...
