Beyond the Label
Ripe apple and peach with underlying, grippy citrusy minerality
Crisp, appley with excellent intensity and punctuated with a steely, mineral edge, Mandelière’s Chablis Premier Cru 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 family have tended their vineyards on a limestone ridge in the heart of the region for four generations now. The name of this Premier Cru, Les Fourneaux, means furnace, and while it’s not quite that hot, the warm sun brings the grapes to excellent ripeness. From a beautifully balanced vintage, this is a complex Chablis with aromas of apple, peach, blossom and minerality. Serve cool with oysters, salmon or gougères.
"Chablis's linear brilliance in this fine Premier Cru. Irresistible now, will be even better"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for Burgundy
