Bright pale colour with some greenish hints. Typical nose of lemon with a slight mineral touch. Vigorous and tensed mouth with a deep intensity and clear aromas. A typical Chablis to be drunk on its freshness. It goes well with food like Gougères and other crisp, cheesy nibbles. All kinds of raw shellfish, especially oysters. Simply cooked shellfish. Snails - or prawns - with garlic butter. Delicatessen. Seafood salads. Andouillette (local Chablis sausage made with tripe and served with chips!). Mustard Rabbit or other dishes with strong mustard-based sauces.
The founders of la Manufacture are lovers of “la Belle Ouvrage”, a traditional French concept of perfectly crafted work. They bring to their wines the same rigour and precision of traditional craftsmanship that are found in horology, haute couture, and porcelain making… It is this unique know-how for which France has been famous for centuries all over the world. La Manufacture is commited to excellence and fineness of execution and it conveys a prestigious portrait of today’s France with yesterday’s values.
In the generally qualitative environment of the well known Chablis Estates and large general Burgundy traders, la Manufacture offers a distinctive and original mindset.
Because they do not have their own vines like an independent state, they go out into vineyards and cellars, and select the fruit of passionate winemakers. After a rigorous selection, long term partnerships, and extra qualitative plots selection, the goal of la Manufacture is to offer its connoisseur clientele some unique gems, which might otherwise have gone unnoticed.
They make a point of selecting partners who share their values of excellence. They work hard to give the best of their Terroir and are thus happy that la Manufacture rewards their wine with a selective distribution worldwide.
