Domaine Christophe Patrice

Originally from Beine, Christophe Patrice has been working in the family estate with his father and uncles since 1996. With the experience he has gained Christophe moved to his own 5-hectare vineyard in 2006 where he honed the style of his wines.

In 2011, he was fortunate enough to acquire the Daniel Roblot estate, gaining further vineyards of mature vines with an area of ​​22 hectares, with an average age of 45 years.

The domaine has vines spread across the communes of Beine, Courgis and Chablis, from which we can offer Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru Beauregard and Montmains, following the extension of the estate.

Contrary to what is practiced by a large majority of Chablis winegrowers, the vines are planted in low density at the rate of 5,800 vines per hectare. Favouring quality over quantity, the viticulture practices single guyot pruning instead of double guyot.

Phytosanitary products are only used when necessary and fertilization is only carried out as absolutely necessary according to the plots and their progress. This activity can therefore be considered that our way of cultivating the vine fits perfectly within the framework of a reasoned culture.

Chablis exclusively uses the Chardonnay grape variety, the vines grow on limestone soil rich in fossils.

Petit Chablis is a wine from a plateau terroir, it is located on Portland soil and combines fruit and freshness. It is ideal as an aperitif and can be enjoyed while young and vibrant.

Chablis is a very dry, lively and fruity wine with refreshing acidity. It is recommended with fish and white meat, can be kept for 3 to 5 years.

The particularity of Chablis Premier Cru Montmains combines minerality, fruit and freshness and has excellent ageing potential.

Chablis Premier Cru Beauregard is a premier cru characteristic of the Courgis terroir, lively with an aroma of honey pear, ideally kept for 5 to 7 years.

All our wines are available to both trade and private customers, with either direct delivery or to collect from our Kendal store.
