    100% Chardonnay from 0.8 hectare, 10 years old vines of Hautes Côtes, located in parallel to the Côte, cover the slopes well faced of hills at a middle altitude of 300 to 400 meters. The soil is clayey and chalky.

    The grapes are first pressed in order to extract the juice, which is placed in a vat for a static racking of the must. The clear juice is lodged in barrels and in vat where it will be sowed in yeast to start off the alcoholic fermentation. The temperatures of fermentation are maintained between 16 and 19° C in order to preserve aromas of fruits. After 10 days of fermentation, the wines are racked and put in cellar.

    Wines stay in cellar during 6 months where it undergoes a second fermentation, the malolactic fermentation, which allows a stabilising of the wine structure. This fermentation finished, wines are prepared for bottling.  

    Bright gold colour. The first nose evokes citrus fruit and apples which evolve into honey and toasted nuts. It is a structure and elegant white wine thanks to the partial ageing in new oak barrels. This wine has a firmness, tempered by the softness of Chardonnay.

    It’s a good wine for drinking young but with a bit of age, 3-4 years, it will express all the Chardonnay subtle flavors. Thanks to its good mellowness, this white wine need to be served not too cold ; a temperature closed to 13° C is advised. The previous breathing of 1 to 2 hours is also advised.

    This wine is to be shared with friends to enjoy its freshness during summertime or with a fish in sauce. It can also be drunk with starters for example a pie, deli meats and cheese. 

    Located in Premeaux-Prissey, close to Nuits Saint Georges, the history of Dubois winegrowers begins around 1600 with the birth of Emiland Dubois, the first ancestor and winegrower to be found in official records.

    Today, sister and brother Béatrice and Raphaël Dubois have been running the estate together since 2006. Domaine Dubois undertook something of a revolution a few years ago, incorporating minimal pesticide use in the interests of healthy, sustainable viticulture, complex vinification, producing subtle, fruity wines… a development noticed by many professional tasters and buyers.

    Their wines correspond more closely to what today’s consumers are looking for. While staying true to their terroir, they try to give them maximum levels of fruit, elegance and length.

    Domaine Dubois produces a range of 21 appellations on 21 hectares of vines: white and red Burgundy, Burgundy Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Nuits Saint Georges premier cru, Savigny les Beaune premier cru and Clos de Vougeot, producing around 100,000 bottles per year.
