Description

The Roy family have been vignerons in the village of Fontenay, just to the north of Chablis, for over 200 years. Today Claude Roy, together with his children David and Karine, farm 18 hectares of vines on the right bank of the River Serein.

They are one of the largest owners of the grands crus including a magnificent 3.5 hectare plot in Bougros. They have only recently begun to bottle a significant proportion of their harvest, having previously sold a majority in bulk to the négociants.  This is definitely a name to watch as their reputation grows.

The estate owns 9 hectares of Chablis vines in the villages of Fontenay and Maligny. Their Coteaux de Fontenay is their finest cuvée, from a plot of old vines on a steep, south facing hillside just outside the village of Fontenay adjacent to premier cru Fourchaume. This is classic, mineral driven Chablis and is a wonderful expression of pure, unoaked Chardonnay.
