James Lawrence travels to Chablis, Domaine Laroche and experiences Les Grands Jours De Bourgogne

Published:  16 April, 2014

I still remember my first sip of Chablis. It was not a very auspicious occasion. Years ago, when I knew absolutely sod all about wine, I thought I'd show off and order a Chablis from my local restaurant's wine list. "Chablis is world famous," I told my friend, "so it's bound to be good." The bottle duly arrived (I forget the grower) and it tasted, well, like nothing basically. Thin, weedy and tart, the wine was a crushing disappointment and did Chablis a great disservice -  like buying an expensive holiday to the Bahamas and ending up at Mrs' Jones guesthouse in Rhyl.
