For the authentic taste of Chablis, look to small, family estates like Robert Nicolle’s Domaine de la Mandelière. It lies on a ridge of limestone, where with painstaking care Robert produces this mineral crisp white from his best parcels of grapes.

Beyond the Label
Steely fresh, yet rounded; brilliant lime and green apple intensity
Crisp, appley and punctuated with a steely, mineral edge, Domaine de la Mandelière is a Chablis that justifies the region’s illustrious reputation. It’s the creation of Robert and Josette Nicolle, who carefully nurture their wines from bud break to bottle to achieve the most authentic expression of terroir. The Nicolle family have tended their vineyards on a ridge of limestone in the heart of the region for four generations. The fruit is hand harvested and hand sorted in the vineyard, and that painstaking commitment to quality shines through in the character of their wines. You can expect a complex Chablis with aromas of stone fruit and apple with floral hints. Serve cool – but not cold – with fresh oysters, goat's cheese or white meats.
"Crisp Chablis. Lovely burst of sharp but not acidic lemony summer. Brilliant white"
