The domaine is managed by Charly Nicolle and his wife Lucie Thieblement, who used to be a chef at the Cote Saint Jacques, a nearby Michelin starred restaurant. The two met when Charly was delivering wine, and years later, Lucie is now working side by side with Charly at the winery.
Decanter – “TOP VALUE & UNDER THE RADAR Intriguing Chablis. The wood (the wine is aged 8-12 months on lees with 10% in used barrels) does add extra depth and complexity to the wine, without it losing any Chablis character. Touch of spice on the finish along with lingering mineral notes. Based in the village of Fleys, the domaine dates back to the late 19th century. The largest holdings are of AP Chablis, and the Vieilles Vignes bottling comes from vines planted in the 1980s and ’90s.” (92 Pts)
