Domaine Hamelin Petit Chablis, Tasting notes:
Domaine Hamelin Petit Chablis is a vivid, light gold yellow colour with a slight hint of green. The nose is expressive with white flowers. The palate is rounded with a touch of minerality and soft with a good length of finish. This well-expressed wine, that is pleasant on the palate, can be enjoyed straight away. It can be drunk at any time of the day, particularly as an aperitif or with lunch.
Domaine Hamelin Petit Chablis is a perfect match for ‘charcuterie’ pâtés and deli meats, as well as a number of cooked dishes. Serve at between 10 and 12°C.
Producer: Domaine Hamelin
Domaine Hamelin has an excellent reputation, the knowledge handed down from generation to generation is a harmonious mix of old traditions and modern-day techniques. Our focus, and the main feature of our Chablis wines, involves keeping the flavour of the ‘terroir’, together with offering our wines maximum generosity and charm. A well-controlled and thermo-regulated wine making process is essential. Our key priority is to bottle the wine ourselves at the optimal moment, during which the wine is at its most expressive. Our policy is to listen attentively to our customers.
Even though the nature of the soil is the key element of the ‘terroir’, many other natural factors influence the quality, typicity and expression of a wine, such as the direction which the vine plots are facing, the altitude, the depth, the climatic conditions of the year and the micro climate. Finally, the role of man is a determining factor in wine production; in the vineyard, as regards the choice and implementation of growing methods – from pruning to harvesting – and in the cellar, as regards the wine-making process and aging.
For this reason, we pay close attention to our vines. We work in a way that respects the environment, using integrated pest control. This means that we use as few treatment products as possible and we choose those that are least harmful to the neighbouring fauna. We now give a higher priority to working the soil. For a number of years, we have been testing cover planting and today, a third of our vineyard is no longer grass-free. We use inter-vine hoes and ploughs to control vegetation. We have noticed that these vines have a higher biomass and more varied fauna.
As regards the wine-making process, the must runs by gravity from the presses to the vats, ensuring ideal quality. Our vat room is thermo-regulated, giving us total control over the vinification and enabling us to age the wine in the best possible conditions.
