Château de Chemily Chablis 2016

Burgundy, France

Buy Now:

€24.00

Classy personality with cool, briny scents and an intense, bracing wash of lemon, galia melon and seashell, with hints of flinty minerals and cool grapefruit on the finish. Supremely refined, and utterly delicious!

Chablis is a super food wine - marry it with raw oysters, moules marinières or simple fish 'n' chips for top gourmandising!

THE PRODUCER

Château de Chemilly was established in the seventies and is today run by Loïc and Yannick Vilain, son and nephew of the founder. The guys take a light-handed approach to winemaking, preferring to allow the terroir, vines and grapes to do the talking, with minimal intervention. The modern packaging is a cut above what you would expect from this most traditional of European wine regions. 

Chablis - always made with 100% Chardonnay - is one of France's classic wines. Included as part of Burgundy for administrative purposes, it should really be considered as its own region. (It's geographically closer to Champagne than Burgundy anyway.) The climate is marginal (i.e. barely suitable for ripening grapes) and helps produce a unique style of Chardonnay that is crisp, nervy and very fine. The main soils are Kimmeridgian and Portlandian.
