Chablis 1er Cru 'Les Fourneaux', Domaine de la Meuliere, Burgundy, France 2015
This product is currently sold out.
24 hectares – historic family vineyard – traditional and modern techniques – hand harvested
An example of an historic winemaking family, the Laroche team have been producing fantastic Chablis from Domaine Meulière since the late 19th century.
In recent years, the youngest generation of workers, Nicolas and Vincent, have integrated a number of new, modern winemaking methods. However, the overall process still more or less mirrors that that was practised by their great grandfather when the Domaine produced its first harvest. For instance, they count themselves among a very small group of Chablis producers who continue to complete their harvest by hand.
Domaine Meulière also boasts rather spectacular wine cellar, which dates back to the 18th century – a site most definitely worth a visit if you are in the region!
Lovely honey and almond characters along with a distinctive savoury fennel finish.
