Etienne Boileau created the Domaine du Chardonnay in 1987 with his two associates, William Nahan and Christian Simon. Together, they helped built the strong Domaine that it is today, making great internationally renowned Chablis. Towards the end of 2018, it is not without emotion that they decided that it was time to retire and hand over their Domaine to Arnaud Nahan and Thomas Labille.
Arnaud, William’s son, grew up close to the Domaine and worked until then with the goal of taking over the family business. Thomas Labille joins him as an experienced cellar master, having worked with some big names in Chablis.
