    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.

    Domaine de L’Enclos is one of the most exciting domaines to emerge from Chablis in the past decade. The estate is owned by Romain and Damien Bouchard, whose family have been working in Chablis for generations. In 2015, they sold their father’s négociant business but retained the 39 hectares of vineyard previously owned by their mother’s family. In addition, they bought a house in the heart of the town, called ‘L’Enclos’, which was originally a building used by the monks of Pontigny to house their vineyard workers.  The brothers have transformed this old house into a modern Chablis winery and have put a great emphasis on working their vineyards organically and sustainably.

    The Domaine de L’Enclos village Chablis is unoaked.  It is pale gold in colour, it boasts bright citrus and green fruit on the nose while the palate is very well balanced, with steely acidity and a zesty creaminess on the palate.

    How to serve it

    Pairs well with

    The wine’s naturally high acidity acts as a palate cleanser.  Works very well with delicately creamy sauces. Lighter meats and fish – chicken, halibut, cod, clams or scallops. Great with raw fish and sushi.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. 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.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following 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.
