Domaine de Bois D'Yver
- Organic certified
Chablis is a reflection of the last century in France. The Pinot noir and Chardonnay from that area were well loved by Parisians up until three successive events almost annihilated the vineyard. First, the creation of the railway brought riper, more pleasant wines from the south of France, then the phylloxera, like everywhere else, killed most of the vines. Finally, the 1st world war took away most of the male population in this area. Up until the end of the 60's, only a few vines survived and polyculture took over. But the arrival of mechanization and chemical products changed all that: From 1000ha in 1970, Chablis is today planted on almost 5000ha. Therefore it has always been difficult to find wines made in a more ethical and clean way for us in Chablis. Bois d'Yver is one of the rare exceptions.
