2010 Domaine de l'Églantière Chablis

SKU #1109719

The wines from Jean Durup appear under several different labels, but are the same lovely, focused and mineral-driven Chablis. This is fantastic Chardonnay made in a totally different style than you will find from much of California and Australia, and at a price that is quite appealing from this part of the world. The 2010 is crisp and bright with an interesting minerality and nice length. A refreshing summer white, with no oak, this is perfect with grilled vegetables or shellfish. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 06/12).

$16 for Chablis! This is not a just a simple Chablis. Fermented and aged in cement and stainless steel this is bright and pure with really good minerality. All the flavors are back by mouth watering acidity, it will make you cry out for more. The best thing about this, it comes from one of the largest Domains in Chablis, so there should be plenty of this, relative to Chablis that is. You don’t have to wait for crab season, chill this bad boy down and enjoy your Indian summer!

Nice bright, fresh Chablis. Refreshing combination and citrus and orchard fruit on the palate with that slight hazelnut character and chalky minerality that sets Chablis apart from any pretender. Quite broad and fleshy showing very well for a young wine. Excellent value.

Again we see a great value in serious Chablis. As a French producer said as she walked by - "this smells like home". Unmistakably Chablis with wonderful wet stone aromatics and light honeycomb notes. Clean and dry on the palate with spectacular unadulterated chardonnay fruit (no new world wood here), drawing the minerally character of the nose all the way through the crisp finish. I'll be taking a case for myself.
Drink from 2012 to 2016

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
