Domaine de L'Enclos, Chablis 1er Cru `Montmains`

This is one of the most exciting new domaines to have emerged from Chablis in the past decade. It is ‘new’ in that it is a name we’ve not seen before, but the family of Romain and Damien Bouchard has been in Chablis for generations. Their father had a negociant business and their mother’s family own vineyards, the majority of which are cultivated organically. The vinification cellar is five metres underground and is spotlessly clean and modern, comprised primarily of small, stainless steel tanks. The small tanks ensure they can vinify the various parcels they have in their vineyards separately.

The grapes were pressed using a pneumatic press into temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks for alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Only natural indigenous yeasts were used during this process. 50% of the wine was aged in stainless-steel tanks while the remaining 50% spent 12 months ageing on its lees in oak barrels, aged between one to five years-old, before being bottled.

This wine has pronounced aromas of ripe yellow fruit with smoky undertones. On the palate, it is full bodied with a freshing, bright acidity.
