Buy with confidence!
Region: Chablis, Burgundy
Farming: Organic (in conversion)
Tasting Note: Côtes Salines is a delicious, organically farmed wine from the village of Préhy in Chablis.
Finding wines of this quality is no easy task in Burgundy and at our first tasting with Celine and Frédéric Gueguen we knew we had found the holy grail - affordable, brilliantly made, characterful Burgundy.
Salines is a baby Chablis: zesty and vibrant with ripe fruit, full of minerals with a lovely saline finish. It is unoaked and exceptionally easy to drink. Our perfect house Burgundy and a wine that reflects Emile's ethos and insatiable love of white Burgundy.
A wine this good needed a special label and Frances Costelloe - the artist behind everything chez Emile - has created something playful and feminine, with just a touch of romanticism. In doing so, she has managed to capture the essence of this wine perfectly.
Background: From vines around the village of Préhy in Chablis, grown on the Kimmeridgian fossil-rich soils the region is so famous for. Unoaked.
