Chartron et Trebuchet Chablis 1ere Cru Beauroy
A complex yet subtle white, with notes of minerally sea salt & even a hint of herbal tea. Amazing freshness & purity. Attractively pale gold in colour. A most distinctive Chablis packed with lots of citrus, green apple and pear flavours which linger in the mouth.
Lightly chilled it makes the perfect accompaniment to seafood of any kind as well as white meat dishes. Also an excellent appetiser.
