Christophe Patrice, a winemaker from the village of Beine in Chablis, has a deep connection to the land and winemaking. In 1996, he joined his family's business but later established his own vineyard in 2006. In 2011, he acquired the prestigious Daniel Roblot estate, expanding his domaine to 22 hectares. The vineyards span across Beine, Courgis, and Chablis, showcasing the region's diversity. Sustainability and respect for the land are paramount to Christophe, who follows a lutte raisonnée approach to vineyard management. With low planting density, the vines have space to thrive. Stainless steel tanks are used to vinify the wines, preserving the pure essence of the Chardonnay fruit. From Petit Chablis to Chablis Premier Cru Beauregard, Christophe's portfolio reflects his dedication to excellence.

Christophe Patrice's winemaking approach is marked by meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of the unique qualities of Chablis terroir. Sustainability is a central focus, with vineyards in Beine, Courgis, and Chablis managed carefully to preserve the land for future generations. The winemaking process emphasizes harmony between nature and craftsmanship, with grapes pressed and fermented exclusively in stainless steel tanks to allow the true character of Chardonnay grapes to shine without oak influence. Malolactic conversion and lees aging add complexity and texture to the Chablis wines, while the VdF Chardonnay follows a different path, showcasing vibrant fruit character without malolactic conversion or lees aging. All wines are vegan-friendly, crafted with ethical and environmentally conscious practices

Petit Chablis  is a white wine produced in the Chablis region of Burgundy, France. While it shares the same Chardonnay grape variety as other wines in the area, it possesses its own unique characteristics. In comparison to its counterparts, Petit Chablis is typically lighter and crisper, exhibiting lively acidity and vibrant flavors of fresh fruits. The vineyards where Petit Chablis grapes are grown are typically situated on the outskirts of the Chablis region, resulting in wines that are slightly less complex and not as suitable for aging as Chablis, Premier Cru, or Grand Cru wines. Nonetheless, Petit Chablis serves as an excellent introduction to the Chablis wine range, providing an accessible and invigorating option for Chardonnay enthusiasts.

The Domaine Christophe Patrice Petit Chablis 2022 captivates with its radiant golden colour, inviting you to explore its fine and intense aromas. Delicate scents of white flowers and citrus fruits dance on the nose, accompanied by a captivating mineral essence of flint and gunflint. This medium-bodied wine envelops the palate with a plush and warm sensation, delivering exceptional intensity and a satisfying length. It harmoniously combines zesty lemon aromas with the delicate essence of white flowers, while its pale yellow colour carries subtle green undertones. Crafted with care, this wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and matures for 4 months in stainless steel tanks, further enhancing its remarkable character. As a well-regarded representation of the Chablis region, it proudly embodies the defining traits of the esteemed Petit Chablis appellation.
