Crushed and Cured

Domaine Corinne Perchaud, Chablis, France, 2020


This wine has intense fruity aromas with good minerality and a lively acidity on the palate. It is well balanced, with great aromatic purity and roundness. It is an expressive and vivacious wine.

Corinne Perchaud is married to fellow Chablis producer Jean-Pierre Grossot. The domaine was established by Jean-Pierre’s grandfather in the 1920s, and in 1980 they bottled their first Chablis. Today, their youngest daughter, Eve, works with them, in keeping with the family tradition. Corinne and Jean-Pierre avoid using chemical pesticides, choosing sustainable methods which are better for the environment and working the soils throughout the year to avoid using chemical fertilisers.

The grapes were pressed immediately with a pneumatic press and without skin contact. Fermented between 19-22°C in stainless-steel tanks followed by six months on the lees, during which malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then racked and aged a further seven months in tank before being gently filtered and bottled.
