La Chapelle de Vaupelteigne
Average age of the vine
Type of soil
Rich, well-drained marl and limestone
The summers are hot and the winter long and harsh. Sunshine and rain levels vary considerably from one year to the next. Spring frosts can be a particular cause for concern in April and May.
In the heart of this hilly region, the vines stretch over the Côte de Benfer and into the Vau Coursière valley. They are planted on either side of the Serein River, on rich, well-drained marl and limestone, allowing the vine stock to extend its roots deep into the earth and providing the plant with a regular supply of water. These conditions enable us to vinify Chablis of great character.
This Estate, founded in 1990, is situated in La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, 4 km to the north of Chablis. It pays tribute to its founder, Aleth, a native of the region who was passionate about wine. The estate has developed gradually over the years and now cultivates 9.5 hectares of vines according to the tenets of integrated farming. Our entire production is vinified in temperature-controlled tanks in order to obtain wines that retain as much of their freshness as possible.
A Word from the Vineyard Manager
"The vineyard at Domaine Aleth essentially comprises old vines with naturally lower yields that result in a warmer Chablis."
