Crisp & Mineral

Arguably one of the best producers in Chablis - Domaine Charly Nicolle was created with less than one hectare in 1979 by Robert Nicolle and Josette Laroche, who can both trace their history from winemaking families in Fleys back to the late 19th century. Since the creation of the Domaine, they have increased the size of their vineyards bit by bit, and currently the Domaine produces wine from 20 hectares of vines. In 1999, they were joined by their 20 year old son Charly, who had just graduated from the lycée viticole.

Today, Charly is officially in charge of the Domaine together with his wife Lucie, but Robert is still out in the vines nearly every day. The largest holdings of the Domaine are in AOC Chablis, located for the most part around the village of Fleys. The vinification is on the lees in stainless steel tanks, which produces a house style that is both fresh and vibrant, but also rich on the mid-palate.

Expect an intoxicating nose of florals with notes of almonds and honey and filled with ripe fruit aromas. The palate is a festival of flavour… tender and abundant. Its character, well-balanced with definite sweetness, was forged respecting the terroir and climate.

This product is part of the LCBO April Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

When this wine is first opened, the nose offers just a distant hint of ripe, yellow apple. Although even further swirling does not awaken more aroma, the palate compensates with tense, textured and chalky freshness. There is lemony, bright concentration along with smoothness. Ripe apple appears again on the finish.
