Productinformation

Winemaker Marie-Ange Robin is the fourth generation of winemakers in the family. It was her father Guy who, plot by plot, bought and planted Chablis vineyards in the 1950s and 1960s - at the time, many winemakers left Chablis because viniculture in this cold region was too difficult. But it was Marie-Ange who took the winery to great heights.

Domaine Guy Robin boasts a rich, if not the richest, collection of old vines. About 80% of the wine from the vines - spread across five grand crus and four premier crus are 'Vieilles Vignes'.

These old vines, and traditional vinification methods ensure that there are few Chablis wines with as much character, concentration and complexity as Marie-Ange's wines. The wines are across the board; seductive, rich and unctuous.

Montée de Tonnerre, is a premier cru vineyard known for producing wines of exceptional quality within the Chablis region.

It has a southwest orientation. The soil consists of white clay and lots of stones, which gives wines a minerality familiar from the left bank. The excellent hillside location ensures that the richness of fruit, as we know from the right bank, dominates. The best of both banks, in other words. Only a small narrow valley separates Montée de Tonnere from the grand cru Blanchots.

Marie-Ange owns 3.07ha in this area, vines are between 40-60 years old. The vineyards are located in all three lieu-dits in 'Montée de Tonnerre': Côte de Bréchain, Pied d'Aloup and Chapelot. Wine is aged in oak for just under a year, 10% of which is new oak.

One of our favourites! Aromas of citrus fruit, minerality and a little honey. Then broad and rich with, perfectly mineral energy.
