Domaine Dupre Chablis 2020


Fresh and direct, with green apples and citrus notes, this is a terrific village Chablis from our new signing Domaine Dupre.




Domaine Dupre










Vines average 40-years-old, planted at 6000 vines per ha. A single vineyard in Corgis. Natural fermentation followed by malolactic. Ageing in stainless steel on fine lees for 12 months. Crisply ripe orchard fruit with tension and citrus acidity on the palate, before a mineral finish which is the hallmark of good Chablis.

About the Domaine

The Dupre family, Alain & Catherine, can trace their roots in Chablis back generations. In 2019 they took the decision, spurred by the return of their children Valentin & Amandine to the domaine, to withdraw completely from the local co-operative and begin to bottle all of their wine under their own name. We are very pleased they did, and are proud to be bringing the wines to the UK for the first time.

Domaine Dupre can be found in Courgis, a few miles southwest of Chablis itself. The family farm 16ha, which is certified to HEV3, everything is done to protect the soils and the vines, no pesticides or herbicides are allowed, and hedges and wild-flowers have been planted to encourage biodiversity. The family’s philosophy is two-fold; to minimise the impact of their farming on the environment and to produce the finest quality fruit possible. The winery has been completely rebuilt in the last few years. All fermentations take place with natural yeasts, while the wines ferment and age in stainless steel, which winemaker Valentin feels gives the purest expression of terroir.

We were immediately taken with the purity of fruit here- Valentin is a young man with a classical palate, and these are beautifully delineated wines which simply couldn’t come from anywhere but Chablis. Bravo!
