Domaine de la Meuliere: A Legacy in Every Bottle

Domaine de la Meuliere is steeped in history, with the Laroche family producing exceptional wines in Chablis since 1780.

A Journey Through the Senses: Tasting Notes

The Domaine de la Meuliere - Chablis - Magnum offers a captivating sensory experience. Pour yourself a glass and be greeted by a vibrant pale yellow colour, hinting at the crispness to come. As you swirl the wine, delightful aromas unfurl, revealing a symphony of citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit, interwoven with hints of white stone fruits such as peach and apricot. Delicate floral notes add a touch of elegance, while the signature characteristic of Chablis – a touch of "gunflint" minerality – emerges, grounding the bouquet.

The first sip is an explosion of freshness. The wine boasts a well-balanced acidity that cuts through the richness, leaving a clean and invigorating sensation on the palate. The flavours echo the aromas, with citrus and stone fruits taking centre stage. The minerality becomes more prominent on the taste buds, offering a distinct impression of crushed seashells and chalk. This interplay between fruit, acidity, and minerality creates a complex and harmonious profile, a hallmark of exceptional Chablis wines.

The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant citrus zest and a subtle touch of minerality that lingers on the tongue. This persistence is a testament to the quality of the grapes and the winemaking expertise behind the Domaine de la Meuliere - Chablis - Magnum.

Food Pairings: A Match Made in Heaven

The Domaine de la Meuliere - Chablis - Magnum is a versatile food pairing wine, capable of complementing a wide range of dishes. Its crisp acidity and minerality make it a natural companion to seafood. Indulge in fresh oysters, grilled prawns, or a delicate white fish dish.

For a delightful vegetarian option, pair the Domaine de la Meuliere - Chablis - Magnum with a goat cheese salad or a quiche Lorraine. The wine's acidity cuts through the creaminess of the cheese, creating a harmonious balance.

Poultry also presents a fantastic pairing. Consider a roast chicken with lemon and herbs, or a flavourful chicken piccata. The wine's bright character will enhance the natural flavours of the chicken without overpowering them.
