Gerard Tremblay, assisted by his wife Helene, is 5th generation winemaker at this 34-hectare estate located in Chablis. Most of the vines are situated in the best premier cru and grand cru appellations. A meticulous winemaker working from a superb new winery, he has crafted some delicious offerings from this region.
Gerard is renowned for drawing out the typicity of the various appellations and his wines are a specific reflection of the terroir from which they are produced. Most of the wines produced by Gerard are sold locally, but a small portion are imported into the United States and other countries.
The stony, clay-limestone soil belongs geologically to the Jurassic, the Kimmeridgian being the stage most represented in the Chablis. It is a land of predilection for Chardonnay, the only grape variety authorized to produce wines with the Appellation Contrôlée “Chablis”. This land is essentially made up of "Exogyra Virgula", tiny comma-shaped oysters present 150 million years ago. Eighty million years later, the saline waters having receded, they began to solidify to form calcareous marls. This is what gives the wine a "mineral aftertaste that seems to have been extracted from the bowels of the earth!"
A clear pale gold in the glass with aromas of green and red apples and a hint of oyster shell. On the palate, fresh and crisp with notes of lime. A beautifully balanced wine, fleshy and ripe with a distinctly mineral finish.
