Chablis 1Er Cru Montmains Domaine Tremblay

This Premier Cru Chablis has a deceptive weight, thanks to grapes sourced from 40-year-old vines in the 1er Cru 'Montmain' vineyard. To achieve its rich and creamy flavour, 30% of the wine is aged in old oak barrels.This wine has a stunning pale yellow colour with hints of green. The aroma is a delightful combination of acacia flowers, yellow nectarine, and green citrus fruits. Its smooth and creamy texture has a touch of honey, which gives way to a lively yet lasting finish. It pairs perfectly with jambon persillé, spring vegetable risotto, or Epoisses cheese.

Gerard Tremblay

Gérard Tremblay, his wife, Hélène, and their son Vincent oversee a domaine that they inherited down a line of five generations. With 35 hectares of vines under production, all of their wine is made from their own fruit.


The Domaine has a superb new winery, providing excellent conditions to bring out the quality of the fruit that these vineyards produce. Grapes are brought directly from the fields and put into pneumatic presses.


The juice is then left to settle for more than twelve hours before being fermented in stainless steel. The entire work at the winery is done by gravity, avoiding unnecessary manipulations of the fruit or pumping of juices.
