Tasting notes

Chablis never seems to falter in popularity and this Premier Cru is a real style icon. It has been made exclusively for Waitrose by the Cave des Vignerons de Chablis. Elegant and complex, this superb crisp white is brimming with fresh, lemony fruit and honeysuckle flavour and has a fantastically steely, dry and smoky finish. Team with seared scallops or other shellfish. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.


The Chardonnay vines used to create this Chablis are planted on the right and left banks of the Serein River, in the Chablis Premier Cru terroirs on the famous Kimmeridgian soils. The wine was matured on fine lees in a combination of tanks and small oak barrels for 12 months to add a beautiful complexity of flavour.

Expert reviews

Chablis is a wine region that holds many great memories for me. There are some wonderful winemakers and exceptionally stylish wines - it's a real privilege to be able to work on wines like this. Here we've used grapes from some of the best premier cru sites in the region and I think it shows. There's the smoky minerality that comes through in good Chablis, underpinned by some fantastically elegant citris flavours and a gentle, rich, subtle florality.

Perfect food match

Prawn and Scallop Salad with Esprit de Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru

Prawn and scallop salad

Fresh, juicy scallops and crunchy prawns layered with creamy mayonnaise with a hint of mint. The crisp acidity of the Chablis cuts through the mayo to bring out the fresh flavours of the prawns and scallops.
