ONLINE TASTING: Fine Wine - Discovering Chablis

There are no upcoming dates for this event. Please view all events.

Duration
2 hours

Event Description

Join wine school founder Jimmy Smith as he leads you through the classic region of Chablis discovering six world-class wines from old vine Chablis, Premier Cru Chablis to Grand Cru Chablis. The tasting will also discover a variety of aged examples from 2005, 2010 and 2015-2019. This will showcase the fantastic ability for fine Chardonnay to age exceptionally well.

Chablis is an historic wine-producing town and region in northern central France. It produces light, dry, white wines famed for their flinty minerality and crisp acidity. AOC Chablis wines are produced exclusively from the famous Chardonnay grape variety.

Chablis wines are made in a style rather different from those produced elsewhere in Burgundy. They are drier and fresher, rather than more weighty and richly flavoured. Most basic Chablis is fermented and aged in stainless steel, with use of oak barrels more common in higher-level wines, though used larger barrels are more likely to be employed than new barriques, and wines will spend a shorter time in them than in the Côte d'Or.

Tasting Date: Friday 26 February 2021 at 7:00pm (the tasting will last approximately 1.5 - 2 hours)
