The Domaine de la Tour is the product of a long tradition of wine-growing and wine- making. It has been in Chalmeau family for two hundred years. The domaine was founded by Auguste Chalmeau in 1820 with just half a hectare of land in the village of Chitry-le-Fort. In 1960 he decided to acquire more vine-growing land in the Chablis appellation and planted vines in the commune of Courgis. This added to the domaine 3 ha of premier cru vines in the climats of Mont-Mains, Côte de Cuissy, and Côte de Jouans.
When Jacques and his wife Andrée retired in 1992, they handed the reins to their son-in-law Renato Fabrici who continues the traditions of the Chalmeau family, producing hand crafted wines, mostly from their estate fruit.
A pure, clear crystalline gold in color with green highlights; hazelnut notes underlie accents of honey, butter, nuanced with fern, spices and tones of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and flint. To the palate, an aromatic wine, fine but not light, full-bodied but not heavy, smooth and firm, dry and tender, rounded and rather intense, little structure but persistent.
