Sebastien Christophe
Twelve hectares of vines, a decade plus of hard work, low yields, and word of mouth…that is how this Chablis convoy now lands within your grasp. Sebastien applied attention to detail and determination to revamp vines that were originally inherited by his grandfather. He ferments and ages his wines in stainless steel, adding a touch of neutral wood before bottling the premier cru wines.  His quartet vision for the resulting wines is elegance, length, purity, and minerality.

From the Importer:
Chablis Vieilles Vignes - These vines are located, like the rest of Sebastien’s range, on the right bank of the Serein. There is a more broad mixture of Portlandian scree mixed with the Kimmeridgian stone here than the left bank of Chablis, which is dominated by Kimmeridgian stone. On this side of the river, the wines express more profound power and floral notes not because of stones but more because of the depth of the stony soils filled with marne and clay.
