How does a perfectly-aged Chablis from a top vintage fall into your lap, in the midst of the most acute Chablis supply crisis in recent memory?

Benjamin forgot all about it, is how.

This wine was destined for another client, but the deal fell through, and the wine stuck around, forgotten in Benjamin’s cellar for a couple of years.

And now you benefit - it’s from the village of Chichée and around here you get a pure, mineral and fresh style of Chablis. A few extra years’ of ageing has made it beautifully smooth and mellow.

This is a one-off from the great 2017 vintage - you won’t see it again, so snap up a couple of bottles while you can.

Due to extremely limited supply, there's a limit of 2 bottles per customer on this wine.
