White wine

Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet, Clos De La Chatenière 1er Cru 2017

RRP £35

Firmly structured Saint-Aubin with density and intensity. Ripe, but not rich. Savoury salty finish. Meticulous vineyard work and winemaking from Jean-Baptiste Bachelet. He takes his time with a long cold ageing process. Excellent terroir definition. The lesser known star of Saint-Aubin.
