Laurent and Christophe Pinson took over their grandfather’s vines in 1988. You will meet Laurent, or his wife Corinne. They have a welcoming old cellar under their house in the Quai Voltaire, with 21st century winemaking facilities next door. Subtle use of old oak is the key to quality here and Forêts is a particular favourite. Combines the best traditions of Chablis with a modern cellar.

Useful information: English spoken, well by Laurent and more hesitantly by Corinne. The sign in the cellar about paying for a tasting without a purchase is simply to discourage people who just want a drink. Maximum ten people as their tasting caveau is small and cosy.
