VILLA BLANCHE TERRET BLANC
Whisper it, but this could give many a Chablis a run for its money. A once popular but now rarely seen grape of the Languedoc, it displays bright citrus fruits with a thrilling mineral finish, reminiscent of more heralded whites.
DOMAINE LOUIS MOREAU, CHABLIS
This is a deliciously delicate expression of the Chardonnay grape from Burgundy, and makes a really smart start to a celebratory meal. There are hints of apples and grapefruit flavours and an elegant buttery edge. It's wonderful with salmon, which has a delicate juniper flavour that is subtle and immediate.
This chardonnay from Stellenbosch, just east of Cape Town in South Africa, is bold, complex and refreshing, There’s a lot going on in there. This barrel fermented wine has butterscotch, spicy cloves and orange peel aromas on the nose. Layers of citrus and melon on the palate and finish with a citrus/lime freshness.
