La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Burgundy, France 2015

Regular price £25.99

Premier Cru Chablis from the award winning  La Chablisienne co-op. Luscious flavours and quality.

La Chablisienne was founded in 1923 as a cooperative winery to help several local growers market their wines. Originally focusing on marketing the wines, the house later took control of the winemaking process, which it manages to this day. The vineyards of La Chablisienne are predominantly Kimmeridgian soil, with small oyster shell deposits found in the limestone. They produce approximately 30 different wines for the appellation as a whole, each a different expression of the unique terroir of Chablis. La Chablisienne was named French Wine Producer of the Year 2016 at the International Wine & Spirits Competition. This followed their International Wine Challenge success in 2015, with winemaker Vincent Bartement being awarded the Best White Winemaker of the Year trophy for the second time.

Tasting Note: Light yellow colour. Lovely minerality on the nose. Complex in the mouth, yet giving perfectly ripe fruit flavours along with fine minerality and soft spice. The finish is tender long fruit.
