What is Chamblaise?
Chamblaise is a Chablis style wine which is blended from Chenin Blanc and Colombard grapes. The juice produces a crisp. semi-dry white wine, which has a clean refreshing aftertaste. The Chablis region is the northernmost wine district of the Burgundy area in France. The cool climate of this region produces wines with more acidity and flavours, less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates. Chamlaise wine has very little oak compared to other white wines with steel-like flavours due to the cooler climate where it is grown.
Chamblaise has a fairly unique flavour on the nose of green apples and fresh cut hay. The lively, mineral back notes and aromas tend to linger on the palate.
