Domaine de la Cornasse (Chablis/France)
Under the tutelage of their winemaker father Alain Geoffroy, daughters Sylvie, Nathalie and Aurelie have launched Domaine de la Cornasse: a new wine for a new generation. They produce 100% Chardonnay from the village of Chablis and Beauroy Premier Cru located on the favourable southwest facing slopes of Beines just outside the town of Chablis.
The family has, in short, fabulous fruit. Their vineyard land sits on what is widely considered the best soils in the world. Kimmeridgian soil is the ancient bed of the Atlantic Ocean that is now clay/limestone with a heavy, nutrient blessed, mixture of fossilized oysters, fish skeletons and other sea life.
