"The Grossots take great pride in their Chablis AOC, which comes from very well-placed sloping vineyards in the communes of Fleys, Chichee and Fontenay. They are able to produce such an exceptionally rich and expressive Chablis AOC because their grapes attain extra maturity, due to the excellent vineyards and their practice of keeping yields low. The soils are all Kimmeridgian limestone-clay with stones and sea-shell fossils. The Grossots usually harvest their Chablis AOC grapes beginning in the third week of September when the fruit has reached an optimal balance of sugar, acidity and pH levels. The wine is aged on its lees in tanks for one year. The Chablis AOC is packed with flavors of ripe pear, citrus and minerals, and has a long, refreshing finish. Always enjoyable on release, it is the ideal introduction to the Grossot's house style. " - Importer
"Corinne and Jean Pierre Grossot, now joined by their daughter Eve, represent the third and fourth generations of winemakers at their family domaine. The Grossots cultivate 18 hectares of Chablis vineyards, centered in the village of Fleys, just east of the town of Chablis. All of Grossot's vineyards are on the right bank of the Serein River which is recognized as the finest part of the Chablis appellation. Their production is about two-thirds Chablis AOC and one third of several Premier Crus, including Mont de-Milieu, Vaucoupin, and Les Fourneaux. The Grossots seek to produce exceptional Chablis wines by keeping the rich, pure Chardonnay fruit, the unique mineral quality of the Kimmeridgian soil, and the lively fruity acidity and bouquet, in perfect balance.
The Grossots' vineyard practices follow and go beyond the standards of culture raisonnee, which Jean-Pierre has practiced for over 20 years. Since 2010, they have been moving towards fully organic viticulture. By pruning severely, the vines have adequate aeration so the threat of problems requiring treatments (such as various forms of mildew and botrytis) are largely eliminated. The plants are fertilized using only organic materials, the soil is plowed, and grass is planted between the rows. No synthetic products are used. Grossot recycles his vine cuttings as fuel for heating the domaine's buildings. These and other measures are examples of sustainable farming chez Grossot.
The grapes are hand-harvested and gently pressed in a horizontal pneumatic press to ensure the fullest extraction of flavors and aromas. The juice ferments very slowly at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks, and after a first racking, the wines rest mostly in tanks to develop. Bottling is usually done 12-18 months after the harvest. The Grossots' commitment to making high quality Chablis wines has brought the estate international acclaim." - Importer
