An object lesson in the crystalline style of chardonnay from the Chablis district of northern Burgundy with a mid-palate swell of ripe golden fruit and a moreish mineral finish to transform your fish supper into a Michelin-starred meal.
The 2.5ha parcel of Baulorent from this branch of Chablis’ historic Fèvre family, touches the grands crus to produce a Chardonnay with the richness and honeyed aspects of its neighbours. Beautifully made to show depth, length and purity.
Wonderfully smooth and floral – most unusual on the nose. Almost like Viognier! Soft!! Nice wine but difficult to sell to traditional Chablis lovers, I would have thought. 16/20.
