Intro to Chablis la Colombe –
Chablis la Colombe France is a superb value old favourite that is a classic example of fresh tasting steely minerally Chablis.
Full tasting note and wine making –
In the Chablis la Colombe there is not a trace of oak, pungent and flinty on the nose with a tad of creamy fruit underneath, this gets richer as the mineral characters give way to a gently fruity core, and is then cut back by a long juicy bite in this classic Chablis from la Colombe. Grapes are sourced from Chablis, the most northerly wine region of Burgundy. The grapes were hand picked and after fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wine is left on its lees for a minimum of six months before undergoing light filtration to retain and enhance flavour and quality.
The producer –
As a point of principal La Colombe fruit is not from the co-operative in Chablis making this style of Chablis quite distinctive from the hoi polloi of Chablis at this quality. It is sourced directly from a network of growers and a unique blend is made from their grapes. The aim is for a style which marries depth on the palate with the finesse and the raciness of classic Chablis, whilst avoiding the eye-watering austerity which mars so many.
Drink with –
A classic combination would be smoked salmon or king prawns but the balance of concentrated creamy fruit and steely acidity also works with vegetarian Indian, more exotic Chinese or even lightly spiced Thai food.
