Production area

Like Chablis appellation, the main bedrock comes from the Jurassic epoch, or more precisely the Kimmeridgean age (150 million years ago). The 27 hectares of Vaucoupin’s vines are located on the right bank of the Serein river in the commune of Chichée.


Overlooking the Serein, the very old vines of our Vaucoupin plots are grown on stony, limestone soils. Over time, the vines pass through cracks thousands of years old, drawing in mineral nutrients.
As for the history, the name Vaucoupin could refer to the structure of the vineyard itself. It could mean that the valley used to covered with woods that were cut at a time or shared between several different owners. It might also refer a former owner, named Coupin.
