Georges Deschamps 1er Cru Fourchaume
The Vrignaud family has been settled in the village of Fontenay-pres-Chablis for five generations. Georgse Deschamps, Guillaume's grandfather, began planting their first vines in 1er Cru Fourchaume in 1955. The 28 hectare domaine is one of a handful of family estates to produce organic wine in Chablis. The family has the utmost respect for nature and biodiversity and has always been working their land in an organic way. 2009 marks the start of organic certification but to Guillaume, organic farming goes beyond what any certification requires and is more a way of living. Guillaume aims to produce wines that reflect both their origin and climate. As a result, intervention in the cellar is very low and is often a slow process that respects the personality of the wine and the vintage.
