Vines handling on Domain Christophe Patrice

In contrary to what is done by a large majority of Chablis vineyard farmers, vines on Domaine Christophe Patrice are planted with a low density of 5,800 vines per hectare. Quality over quantity is privileged and for that, Christophe Patrice practices vines pruning in simple guyot or in double guyot. Phytosanitary products are used only when necessary and fertilization is limited according to the plots.

About Appellation Chablis

Mid-way between Beaune and Paris, the Chablis winegrowing region stretches over around 20 communes. Nestled among the valleys and wooded hilltops, the vineyards cover the hillsides running alongside the pretty Serein Valley. The vines sink their roots deep into the clay-limestone soil, drawing on them for their characteristic mineral aromas, to the delight of Chablis drinkers. Here, Chardonnay reigns supreme. It is used for all Chablis wines and has made them famous around the world. The most highly prized among them is Chablis Grand Cru, with its green-gold color and perfect balance between liveliness, dryness and acidity.

How I started with Christophe Patrice
I met with Christophe during a tasting day in Chablis. Christophe wanted to developed the sales in bottle rather than in bulk.
I was looking for a great winery with a diversity of appellation within the Chablis area. With a Petit Chablis, a Chablis and three Premier Cru it was perfect.
We tasted together and I liked his wines and his approach and this is how we started to work together. We are now working together in the US, in Israel, in Netherlands, in Germany and in Hong Kong.
