Chablis, Robert Goulley, France (bottle price £25)
Since the inception of Flunder Wines, we have been looking for a Chablis that isn’t there to just sit in our range but to represent what the region is about. One of our last trips away before the lockdown started was to the region to find out exactly what it’s all about. We are therefore super excited to be stocking the Domaine Goulley wines. They are certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale’ which is based on environmental performance indicators that relate to the entire farm. In a nutshell, this certification certifies that elements of biodiversity are widely present on the domaine and the impact of agricultural practices on the environment (air, climate, water, soil, biodiversity, landscapes) is reduced to a minimum.. Grown on the fabled Kimmeridgian clay and limestone that makes Chablis, Chablis, this wine shows all the rich aromatic qualities and minerally freshness that you would hope for. The temperature controlled ferment and 10 months on lees only adds to the complexity, richness and mouthfeel.
