Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Masses of camomile and chalk and rich lemon and green apple fruit meets one's nose. This smells like utterly classically-built Chablis. There's the merest hint of spiced breadth on entry, but this quickly turns really firm and upright. There's superb tension within: a heart of proper Chablis-ness. This is a busy wine of spicy density through to lemon leavings: a pithy, concentrated finish. Bowes Wine original note

"...the green-apple and chalk character of classic Chablis. Good persistence and tension on the palate, and it's very attractive to drink now." Julia Harding MW

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
