Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"Domaine Guy Robin et Fils today is a winery reborn. Marie-Ange represents the fourth generation of vine growers in the family. It was her father Guy who slowly, parcel by parcel, built up the family estate; yet it is Marie-Ange who has brought this winery to a level of greatness for which it was always destined.

Marie-Ange remembers her parents planting the family’s vines in the late 1950s and 1960s, at a time when other defeated Chablis growers were leaving the village in droves, exhausted by the hard work (and repeated destructive frosts) of this northern wine region. But Marie-Ange’s parents persevered.

Because of her family’s efforts, Domaine Robin today claims the most premier and grand cru vineyard land (second only to neighboring William Fevre) – not to mention some of the oldest Chardonnay vines – in Chablis. And as a result, Robin Chablis across the board has a seductive, textural quality to it; they are unctuous, weighty, serious Chablis wines.

In short, there are few other estates that promise old-vine Chablis wines of such character and complexity, for such reasonable prices."
