Established in Chablis in 1940, Domaine Pinson was founded by the most significant figure of the family - Louis Pinson. They were one of the earliest in Chablis to sell wines directly to the public, and they have long been known to create some of the best old-style Chablis wines. Pinson owns around 14 hectares of vineyards, which includes holdings of 6 Premier Crus and arguably the very best Grand Cru in Chablis – Les Clos. Nowadays the domaine is managed by his great-granddaughter Charlène, her father, Laurent, and her uncle Christophe.
They harvest everything by hand, and sort both in the vineyards and winery providing the best protection to the grapes. As they believe a unique vinification is required for every parcel, some vineyards are fermented by the barrel, with the remaining fermented in tank, in which each terroir is given a slightly different approach and methods directed by Charlène in order to create wines with intense purity and the most precise expression of Chardonnay.

90-92pts Stephen Tanzer
(20% new oak): Yellow-gold. Slightly reduced aromas of musky, spicy yellow peach and a suggestion of minerality. A fat, thick style leavened by racy acidity, with its oyster-shell minerality giving it an almost austere quality in the context of this vintage. Finishes with stony minerality and surprising acidity.
