In the battle of the Premier Cru Chablis, who are you backing … Raveneau or Dauvissat?
Both unmistakably Chablis and yet strikingly different in style, this extraordinary pair divided opinion across the table at a recent white Burgundy dinner. It turns out that there are some very strong opinions amongst the Chelsea Vintners team when it comes to great Chablis – but isn't spirited discussion what fine wine is all about!?

When the weather is this warm, there’s only one thing for it … chilled Champagne and lots of it!
Launched in 2019, the @charlesheidsieckchampagne Brut Millesime 2008 is yet another superb instalment in the story of one of the most consistently superb Champagne houses in all of France (in the humble opinion of the Chelsea Vintners team!)
Just 2500 cases were produced from this memorably cool vintage, blending the best of ten different Premier Cru and Grand Cru villages to create an elegant, powerful cuvée that in the true spirit of Champagne totally transcends the sum of its parts.
Fresh yet full, with sumptuous texture from 10 years on lees which is balanced by a bright, citrusy lemon sherbet and lime zest on the nose. Rich peach and pear on the palate, a hint of golden apple and a distinct chalkiness which contributes to a beautifully bright finish.
A perfect companion for some fun in the sun this wine Wednesday!
Is there a more heroic way to start the weekend than with a Rousseau Chambertin 2002? We think not …
One of the undisputed kings of Burgundy, Domaine Armand Rousseau occupies a legendary place amongst the greatest and most revered producers of this epic wine region. Over half of the domaine's 15 hectares of vineyards are in some of Burgundy's best Grand Cru sites across Gevrey-Chambertin – a true source of pride for a domaine founded and run to this day by a family who can trace their origins back in the same village for many years.
So many things set Rousseau apart – one of the first estates to champion domaine bottling in the 1930s, much of their fruit is sourced from very old vines and intervention in the winery is kept to an absolute minimum in order to allow each and every magnificent berry to achieve its full potential.
However, as we know, the true proof of quality always lies beneath the cork … and when it comes to Rousseau, this never disappoints. Structured yet achingly elegant, fine silken tannins and a pale colour which deepens with age, these wines just keep getting better and better in the bottle until they are dark fruited, spiced, smoky, earthy things of total ethereal beauty.
Our founder @trevaster78 had the pleasure of tasting this very bottle, and described it as 'delicious but not in an obvious way, so subtle and revealing more and more beauty as the night went on'.
Do you have your own fond memories of an exceptional bottle of Rousseau?
