Wine Review - Central England Co-Operative - Chablis Premier Cru

My review for the Central England Co-Operative We Like Wine Blog this month is a lovely, crisp Chablis Premier Cru from their Truly Irresistable range of wines.

This French Chablis has the traditional flavours of citrus fruits with the subtle minerality of the soil in which the grapes are grown. This Chablis is no exception to this and has a fresh zingy fragrance with an initial kick of citrus fruits, followed by a crisp dryness as it leaves your mouth. It's got a pale and delicate colour reminiscent of a bright summer's day.

Chablis pairs perfectly with chicken and other poultry as well as fish and goats cheese, yet this is more than capable of being enjoyed on its own as you relax after a hard day's work.  Let the flavour sensation refresh and tantalise your palate whilst tingling your tastebuds.

We chose to have this with a quick and easy midweek meal of sweet and sour chicken served with rice and prawn crackers in a sweet chilli sauce, which my husband prepared as I drove home from work.

The wine, fresh from the fridge and child to perfection, was the ideal balance to the heat of the chilli and the sweetness of the sauce;  truly enjoyable accompaniment to our meal.

I was sent a voucher with which to purchase this bottle of white wine, which retails at £14.99. (Price as at 10/01/2015).
