  • Chablis, Burgundy, France
  • The Jean Bouchard House has existed for nearly 2 centuries and the expertise shows in the wines. Chablis is the crispest most stream-lined expression of Chardonnay in Burgundy. 3 levels Villages/ 1er Cru/Grand Cru- this is the 2nd level. Vaillons is one of the largest Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis, located in a valley to the southwest of Chablis town itself. Here, on the western side of the Serein river, a southeasterly aspect and high-quality Kimmeridgian (clay) soils make for an excellent wine with intense minerality. A portion of the wine is barrel aged (max 15% new French oak), giving more weight and texture to the palate than unoaked villages Chablis.
  • Fresh green apple and white blossom with delicate salty sea-shell minerality. A hint of rounded creaminess in the palate and taut acidity that creates a long, uplifting finish.
  • Enjoy with pasta, spicy dishes and chicken. Seafood, creamy sauces or chicken or fish curries and tandoori.
