About the wine

A baby Chablis without the price tag describes the Bourgogne Chardonnay from La Chablisienne in a nutshell. Made from grapes grown across the Chablis appellation, on some sites that border Premier and Grand Cru vineyards, this Bourgogne Chardonnay, produced under the watchful eye of La Chablisienne’s expert winemakers, is precise, elegant and citrussy with that delicious chalky edge. Notes of lemon zest and white blossom play with a subtle savoury hint on the nose. Fresh, firm and medium bodied on the palate with an abundance of citrus and green fruit character. The acidity is zippy, and it is balanced beautifully by some creamy savouriness and a lovely chalky finish. This is a classy bottle that really does offer bang for the buck. Fans of Chablis should take advantage of this Bourgogne version for everyday drinking.

About the wine

As with all of the wines from La Chablisienne, the grapes for this 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay are pressed by the individual growers before the juice is handed over to the winemakers at La Chablisienne’s winery in the heart of the Chablis village. The wine undergoes a cold fermentation before malolactic fermentation in steel tanks. The wine undergoes fining and filtration before bottling and at least 9 months in bottle before release. La Chablisienne is a pioneering cooperative in Burgundy’s northern-most appellation famed for its finessed Chardonnay production. Over 300 individual growers contribute to the production of thirty different wines, no other producer is able to exhibit such range and diversity within this fascinating terroir.
