2016 Chablis 'La Sereine' La Chablisienne
The 2016 vintage of this excellent Chablis from La Chablisienne replaces the 2014 which was a firm favourite of ours. The new vintage is we think a step up in quality but not in price. It is fresh with excellent lemon tinged fruit and that ‘oyster shell’ minerality unique to good Chablis. Perfect with seafood, particularly shellfish – and of course by itself.
Since 1923 at Chablis in Burgundy a number of growers in Chablis have been working together under the banner of La Chablisienne cooperative and have honed their wine-making craft together. They were very recently awarded 'French Wine Producer of The Year 2018' at the IWSC (International Wine and Spirits Competition).
