Petit Chablis usually lacks the poise and intensity of Chablis proper, but not this one from the excellent Dampt family. The brothers manage this excellence every year, but quality is very high in 2018. Brilliant citrus, wet stone and hay flavours.
"It has a light floral bouquet with hints of white petals infusing the citrus fruit"
Neal Martin Wine Advocate for 2015
Although the village of Chablis is tiny, its influence and fame is anything but. So outstanding are the flavours of its Chardonnay wines that it has inspired imitations (which inevitably are never as fine) as far afield as California and Australia. The long established Dampt estate makes textbook Chablis, but it’s this wine, from vineyards designated Petit Chablis, that offers the smartest entrée to their range. By employing the same exacting standards of vineyard management as they do for their top wines, the Dampt brothers achieve surprisingly concentrated flavours, classic summer hay aromas, and that all important streak of bone dry minerality. Enjoy this fine Petit Chablis with freshly shucked oysters, wild salmon or grilled Dover sole.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
