Wine Recommendation for after the Dryathlon

In a previous post we recommended our favourite red wine to settle you back into wine after the Dryathlon. It's such an amazing achievement, you should be very proud of yourself but now it's time to think about what white wine to stock up with.

Domaine Charly Nicolle Chablis 'Ancestrum' 2010

Dryathlon Wine RecommendationsCharly Nicolle considers his vines to be his babies and the care he gives them is indicative of this. He lives, eats and breaths wine. There is a real 'family' feel to the winery with everybody having their part to play and the result is wines that are borne out of love. One of the most iconic areas in Burgundy is Chablis and the crisp, elegant style of the wine is muchly thanks to the soil of the area. It is limestone rich clay which adds a distinct minerality to the wines made from the Chardonnay grape. Charly makes great efforts to ensure the  'terroir' is evident in every bottle.

Tasting and Food

There is an almost heady character on the nose with floral acacia and ripe peach. The palate is clean and delicate but with a weight and texture expected from a Chablis of this quality. A pleasure to drink with a fresh, elegant finish. The Chablis is delicate and elegant but has a structure and weight due to maturation on its lees for 12 months. This means the wine pairs well to creamy dishes with fish, pasta or chicken. Seafood would also be a good match for the fresh acidity and creamy cheese such as brie or Port Salut work very well. A truly versatile wine. There we have it. Our favourite wines of the moment. Follow our blog to receive regular updates with hints and tips about the world of wine.
