"Elegance Rooted in Tradition: Paul Nicolle's Chablis Legacy"

History and Pedigree:

Nestled in the picturesque village of Fleys, just a stone's throw from the iconic town of Chablis, Domaine Paul Nicolle epitomizes the harmony between tradition and innovation. With roots extending back to the late 19th century, this family-run estate has been a beacon of quality and dedication in the heart of Burgundy. Initially founded by Paul Nicolle in the 1950s and later rejuvenated by his grandson Charly, the domaine is a testament to the enduring legacy of the Nicolle family. Committed to sustainable agriculture, as evidenced by their HVE (High Environmental Value) certification, Paul Nicolle champions integrated farming methods, ensuring a minimal ecological footprint while producing exceptional wines.

Production Highlights:

Specializing in Chardonnay, the domaine meticulously cultivates its vines across 14 hectares of Kimmeridgian limestone soil—a terroir celebrated for imparting a distinct minerality and complexity to the Chablis. With vineyards planted in the 1980s and 1990s in Fleys, Chablis, Chichée, and Béru, the focus is on low intervention and sustainable practices. The élevage process in stainless steel tanks, complemented by a touch of used barrel aging, encapsulates the domaine's philosophy: to create wines that are fresh, vibrant, and rich on the mid-palate, embodying the quintessence of Chablis.
