    Chablis is the northernmost region in Burgundy and it is renowned world-wide for producing high quality dry white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes.   Its northern location gives it a cooler climate than other Burgundy regions and the resultant wines have higher acidity than Chardonnay produced in warmer climes.  They are typically unoaked.  The French describe the appeal of Chablis as its goût de pierre à fusil, or gunflint quality.  The steely acidity, nervy, fresh, energetic style of Chardonnay is unique.

    Out of 5,600ha under vine in Chablis, only 779ha are designated Premier Cru.  The Vau de Vey is a a 43Ha Premier Cru vineyard that runs almost the length of a steep, thin, east-facing slope of a north-south valley in the western part of Chablis.  Here, Domaine des Malandes, a traditional family-run estate owns 3.5Ha and from this parcel of land they produce a wonderful wine with classic minerality, a distinct smoky note, balanced by beautiful ripe citrus fruit, green apple and a hint of apricot. Wonderfully fresh with a lingering steely finish.

    How to serve it

    Lightly Chilled

    Pairs well with

    Take advantage of the wine’s naturally high acidity to act as a palate cleanser.  Works very well with delicately creamy sauces. Stick to lighter meats and fish – chicken, quail, trout, bass, halibut, cod, clams or scallops. Great with raw fish and sushi.

We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
