Sommelier's Notes

Domaine Jean Pierre & Alexandre Ellevin is located 4km outside of Chablis in Burgundy and it is composed of a total of 13 ha of Kimmeridgian clay-limestone that includes wines from the following appellations: Petit Chablis, Chablis and Premier Cru Vaucoupin and Vosgros.


It was in 1975 that Jean-Pierre, a 5th generation wine maker developed the Estate and specialized in the production of Chablis in the village of Clichée . In the 1980’s Jean-Pierre married his wife, Brigitte Cerveau, also from a winemaking family with a history dating back to the French revolution. After his studies and various travels around the world, their son Alexandre joined the Estate in 2003. Today, Jean-Pierre and Brigitte cultivate 16 hectares, which is exclusively Chardonnay.


The Ellevins have always worked the vine and the estate practices sustainable viticulture listening to the vines and finding the “terroir” expression.


The wines are characterized as refreshingly vivid with a nice dry mineral side. They present a lovely velvety texture. Their wines are very highly recognized by Guide Hachette, Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate and Wine Enthusiast.


The Chablis is pale yellow with white gold highlights. Fresh nose but rather discreet, in the essentially floral register. Point of minerality with aeration and subtle note of green apple. Light and delicate wine, dominated in the middle of the mouth by the vivacity of citrus fruits. There is a finish of great finesse and nice texture, balanced and fruity. Nice persistence for a complete and aerial set.


“Pretty straw yellow robe, fairly sustained. From the opening, an exemplary fruit dominates a particularly expressive and fragrant nose. Beautiful citrus, pear and Mirabelle plum aromas, complemented by a pleasant touch of minerality. Superb texture. Fleshy mouth dominated by citrus. Oily, coated, almost unctuous finish for a particularly charming vintage .... »


Aging : 7-8 years


Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 12 C - 14 C. Good match with meaty fish like salmon or monkfish, juicy white meat and poultry, breaded veal, or creamy cheeses like Roquefort and Epoisses I
