Domaine Millet, Tonnerre - Chablis
Domaine Millet is located in Tonnerre. Originally farming cereal and poultry on their Chablis farm, the Millet family started wine production in 1980. This family-owned estate is comprised of 32 acres on 4 of the 20 sites of the Chablis Appellation - Poilly, Viviers, Béru, Chichée.
Today, the estate is run by Baudouin Millet. In Chablis, the soil is a determining factor. Millions of years ago, the crushed remains of oyster shells fossilized and eventually became the unique soil that lies under the vineyards of Chablis. This specific soil gives Chablis its unique steely, crisp, refined and mineral character. Domaine Millet's aim is to interfere as little as possible with the natural ecology of the vineyard. There is no systematic treatment. The belief is that a healthy soil will produce healthier vines requiring less outside interference.
