Chablis Vigne de La Reine 2015, A.C. Chablis
Selected for Waddesdon’s guest wine selection due to its quality and artisanal approach to wine making. This Chablis is exclusive to Waddesdon, and only a few hundred cases are made annually. The fruit used to produce this wine is collected from a single parcel in the Mignote Valley, which enjoys a very specific microclimate, allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The resulting wines therefore possess a distinct richness and fruit forward character.

This beautiful Chablis offers energy and verve through lively acidity, persistent mineral notes, and refreshing citrus notes. The nose starts off with buttery orchard fruit, green apple, lemon peel and wet stone then becomes slightly creamier after a few minutes in the glass. The finish rolls on towards the 40 second mark leaving traces of lemon peel with an explosion of classic mineral notes. Serve cool, but not cold. Limited production, coupled with expert management from Chateau Maligny, enables this wonderful Chablis to possess marvellous concentration and typicity.
