commentary on: DOMAINE DE LA VERPAILLE

What can I say about this one? This literally changed all of my beliefs.

First up, I’ve never been able to drink white wine – it used to give me the worst acid. Since I’ve started drinking lower intervention wines, especially those with even lower sulphites, I’ve been able to.

I’ve also never been a fan of Chardonnay. Actually, I’d actively avoid it at all costs.

My little French friend here however, overturned both of those things for me. I ordered 4 further bottles of this after my first try and shared it with everyone I know.

The maker

The vineyard was converted to organic in 2006 and was officially certified in 2009. The process is as low-intervention as possible. It’s “low sulphite” too.

Our opinion

It’s fresh, a little creamy and with just the right amount of acidity. We don’t do food pairings, but one night I shared this with some friends over some takeaway pizza and it was perfect. There were pics on our Instagram.

Steve’s scale

In my top 5 white wines ever.

If you’re wondering about the relevance of the skateboard in the shot – I’m a skateboarder and have been since I was young. Mischief was the local independent skate store run by Bingo (google him) who sadly passed some years ago. We’re trying to represent him in a lot of what we do as an independent business from Teesside. You can also see the iconic Transporter Bridge, which is a prominent Teesside landmark on the board graphic.
