Ellie David, Best Chablis wines to buy in the UK, dec 21 :



Celine - one of the co-founders of Domaine Gueguen - was destined for a career in wine-making, it has been running through her family for generations after all. Uniquely, it was though her mother, the daughter of vignerons who owned vines not far from Chablis in Saint-Bris and introduced it to her father. He was Jean-Marc Brocard, whose domaine (now run by her brother Julien) is one of the largest privately owned producers in Chablis and a leader in the organic sphere.

She teamed up with her husband Frederic to launch Chablis Gueguen who have a large portfolio of wines that include as mentioned Saint-Bris, Bourgogne named after her grandfather (Emile) and grandmother (Marie Louise) - red wines crafted by Pinor Noir grapes and of course, Chablis.




  • Petit Chablis 2020 : This is a really lovely Petit Chablis that can be enjoyed young or in a year or so. It packs all the elements of the wine type to satisfy the purists - acidity, minerality and is all the right amounts of dry and fruity. Best enjoyed on a warm summer’s day.


  • Chablis 2020 : The 2020 is a fresh tasting wine that is sure to develop the longer that you store it (recommended up to five years). It is clean and fresh and yet evolves with white flower, that gunflint wood undertone and peach.


  • Chablis Premier Cru Vaucoupin 2020 : This Premier Cru sits on the drier end of the spectrum, while still maintaining the wine’s regional characteristics. It is light with notes of citrus and green fruits and gives a long finish with the right amount of acidity.
