Domaine Laroche Chablis Premier Cru 2008

I must admit I don’t drink enough Chardonnay but I hope to remedy this, especially with the better weather on its way.

So it’s time to fill your fridges with a selection of quality whites and you may well find that every now and then you come across a wine that you drink and don’t want it to finish, this brilliant Burgundy just happens to be one of those bottles.

I actually bought this a little while ago when Tesco were discontinuing some of their fine wines, there were only two bottles left in store that were both priced at £13, if there were more I would have cleared the shelf.

On pouring I had a feeling this was going to be good, a deep golden colour showing a little age, with a delightful nose of apples, pears, almonds, all if you can imagine, drenched in honey and cream.

A fresh and lively taste full of crisp green apples and ripe pears, steely minerality and a hint of oak, followed by more complex layers of tropical fruits including ripe bananas and peaches all capped off with a delicious creamy finish that lasted a week.

Paired this with a delicious roast chicken and it was a perfect match. This really was pretty good and if anyone can find a bottle treat yourself you won’t be disappointed.
