The debut release of Marcelin was a winner and the latest vintage is packed with just as much delicious peach, nectarine and apricot flavour, with lemony freshness. No wonder there’s a resurgence of love for Burgundy’s classic grape, Chardonnay.

"Rethink Chardonnay – this is gorgeous, just a touch of oak and real depth – lovely"
Online Review For the 2014 vintage
Introducing a wine that represents true fighting spirit in more ways than one. In 1907 vignerons and growers in the Languedoc rebelled against the diluted wines flooding France and undermining their livelihoods – and laid the foundations for today’s appellation contrôlée system. This Chardonnay honours their stand and is named after their leader, Marcelin Albert. It also makes a stand for a grape that’s lost popularity in recent years. Hard to see why when it’s the varietal behind Chablis, indeed all great Burgundy whites. Expect layers of tropical fruit flavours, a dash of oak and an ultra fresh, elegant finish. Serve Cuvée 1907 chilled with fruits de mer or chicken, and raise a glass to Chardonnay and Monsieur Albert. Vive la révolution!

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
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
