Swirling, lifted aromas of lemon, minerals, butter, chalk, lime and wet stone! Textured, vigorous and long. Opulent and delicious.
Enjoy with monkfish, chicken casserole, lobster or oily salads.
Chablis Premier Cru wines are classy, minerally wines which usually are less concentrated than the Grand Crus, but finer and longer-lasting than basic Chablis. They are underrated relative to many other white Burgundies.
The vineyards cover 750 hectares scattered across 15 communes on isolated slopes with good exposure. With the appellation’s area having doubled since the 1970s, quality can vary alarmingly.
Styles also vary, with some producers maturing and fermenting in stainless steel for a purer, more minerally style, while others age and sometimes even ferment their wines in oak for extra richness and complexity. The best examples peak after a decade, but are generally drunk long before then.
We deliver anywhere on the island of Ireland, using Fastway. Your wines should be with you within 2 days of ordering but it can take up to 5 days at peak times (Christmas especially).
There is no delivery charge for our pre-mixed cases whether of six or twelve bottles, or on orders over €120 (after discounts). Orders of less than this value incur a flat charge of €10.
You can collect your order from our Marina Business Park shop (choose 'Pick up - at Marina' on the Checkout page) - allow one working day for us to process your order. We recommend phoning before you make your journey to check that your order is ready, as there may be a slight delay if we need to order it from the bonded warehouse.
If you are not at home to receive your delivery the courier will try to ring you before returning your parcel to the depot; or, provided you have given your express consent to this in advance, may attempt to leave the wine with a neighbour. A signature is required to complete the delivery at all times.
You can cancel an order for up to 7 days after you receive the wine (just call us) but you may be liable for the cost of returning the stock to us, depending on the circumstances.
All goods must be examined at the time of delivery. Claims for breakages (etc) will be entertained only if Bubble Brothers is given notification within two days of delivery.
Faulty (i.e. oxidised, 'corked') wines are a fact of life in wine (though the incidence is much reduced, thankfully). If you detect an issue with a wine we've sent you, call us and we will replace the bottle without quibble.
