Vintages

Chablis: Rêve de Bakara, Chablis Vaudecorce, Appellation Chablis Contrôlée

Part fermented in oak, part in steel, the Chardonnay grape in Chablis produces a flinty, sharp tang with good underlying citrus fruits. 

The grape in this northern part of Burgundy behaves differently from the rest of the region due to the underlying Kimmeridgian marl which nourishes and maintains the vines. 

Perfect as an aperitif or with fish, chicken, shellfish (oysters in particular), Chablis has been a staple of the best tables around the world.

Irancy: Rêve de Damask, Appellation Irancy Contrôlée

Famille Clarke’s latest adventure in Burgundy brings us their first red wine made from Pinot Noir and César grapes. 

Like Chablis, the vines are grown on Kimmeridgian marl. Pinot Noir needs no introduction but César is rarely cultivated. Rich in tannins, lively in colour, César is a noble grape which lends the wine an interesting personality and adds body. 

The wines are crimson in colour, shading towards dark red, and are rich in highlights. The bouquet bursts with fruit (blackcurrant, Morello cherry, raspberry, blackberry) floral, liquorice and pepper. Despite this robust start, the tannins melt into a firm and velvety structure in the mouth. Its acidity is sufficient to ensure excellent keeping qualities (3-10 years).
