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.

Valmur is a 12.89ha grand cru vineyard and forms a wedge between Grenouilles and Les Clos grand cru vineyards. Here, it is not exposure but mesoclimate that makes the difference! The valley is enclosed with few air currents. This makes it like an oven in summer and, in addition, it can be exceptionally cold in winter because the air does not flow away.

The family cleared land near the forest edge in the 1950s and 1960s to plant their vines here. Today, with 2.6ha, the family is the largest owner in Valmur grand cru.

Basically, the soil is Valmur contains more clay than, say, Vaudésir grand cru, therefore less aromatic but with remarkable weight. But Marie-Ange's vineyards are high, here the soil is thin, making for wines with a lot of chalky, nervous energy.
