A little more altitude, a little less soil, a whole lot more chalky energy and nervous energy. The family cleared land near the forest line to plant their vines here in the 1950s and 1960s. A gorgeous wine to watch evolve over the years.

Winemaker Marie-Ange Robin represents the fourth generation of vine growers in the family. It was her father Guy who, parcel by parcel, purchased Chablis vineyards in the 1950s; yet it is Marie-Ange who has brought the winery to a level of greatness for which it was always destined. There are few other Chablis estates with such a rich collection of older-vine rootstock, and as a result, few other estates that deliver Chablis wines of such character and complexity. Some 80 percent of the family’s vines today—across five grand cru and four premier cru vineyards—are “vieilles vignes” or older vines
