Cuvée Magazine

Cuvée N°2, Wine Magazine, Chablis

By Stefanie Koehler (2017)

Stefanie Koehler is a German journalist who specializes in wine. In 2016, she launched the magazine Cuvée, each issue focusing on one wine region. The second was on Chablis.

This photo-filled magazine illustrates the quintessence of Chablis wines in a very informative way. The diversity of styles and know-how is reflected through fourteen individual portraits interspersed with other themes: the Climats, the four "fabulous" appellations, the personality of each of the seven Chablis Grand Cru Climats, the unique terroir and methods used against frost. A modern culinary approach rubs shoulders with the tradition embodied by the Piliers Chablisiens.
