Chablis "Vielles Vignes"



Beautiful and fresh Chablis from old vines.

At Domaine Couladin Bussy, they only make stringy and ultra-classic Chablis. No oak casks are used here, as the focus is on preserving as much freshness and minerality in the wines as possible. Here it is the house's "Vielles Vignes", which means that the grapes are harvested from old vines. More precisely, the Chardonnay grapes for this wine come from vines with an average age of 55 years, from a vineyard that is sandwiched between the two 1st cru fields of Vaillons and Montmains.The older vines add extra intensity and fullness to the wine than you find in the house's regular Chablis. Wonderfully fresh scent and taste of different shades of citrus, which leads to a really refreshing and long aftertaste.


Flot og frisk Chablis fra gamle vinstokke.

Hos Domaine Couladin Bussy laver man udelukkende snorlige og ultraklassisk Chablis. Her er ingen brug af egetræsfade, da fokus er på at bevare så meget friskhed og mineralitet i vinene, som overhovedet muligt. Her er det husets "Vielles Vignes", der betyder, at druerne er høstet fra gamle vinstokke. Nærmere bestemt kommer Chardonnay-druerne til denne vin fra stokke med en gennemsnitsalder på 55 år, fra en vinmark der ligger klemt inde mellem de to 1. cru marker Vaillons og Montmains.
De ældre vinstokke tilfører vinen ekstra intensitet og fylde, end man finder i husets almindelige Chablis. Herligt frisk duft og smag af forskellige nuancer af citrus, som munder ud i en virkelig forfriskende og lang eftersmag.

General grape descriptions


Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
