We recently had the opportunity to taste the range of wines from Domaine Alexandre in Chablis (they have just been launched by one of the Swedish internet wine merchants), and we quite liked them. The property is in the small village of La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne just north of Chablis itself. It is Olivier Alexandre and his father Guy who run it. The 13 hectares of vineyards are located around the village and in three other communes: Beines, Lignorelles and Villy. The wines are crisp, dry and without any oak. Some tasting notes:
Domaine Alexandre Chablis 2014 Premier Cru Fourchaume
Quite full-bodied, with some ”fat” and citrus aromas, flowers. A nice and typical Chablis (~24 euro, Swedish retail price estimate).
Domaine Alexandre Chablis 2014 Vieilles Vignes
Typical chardonnay character with a good body and fresh acidity. The vines were planted by Olivier’s grandfather and are now 50 years old. (~21 euro)
Domaine Alexandre Petit Chablis 2015
Shy on the nose with fresh lemon character, a good acidity and typical steeliness on the finish. (~17 euro)
