Co-op Irresistible Chablis Premier Cru
A crisp refreshing white from a renowned family producer. Brocard was given a hectare of vineyard as a wedding present and has since become one of the most respected producers in Chablis. We have been sourcing our Chablis from him for nine years, made exclusively for the Co-op. It doesn’t get much better than that.Find out more

About our white wines
What temperature should I serve white wine at?
It depends on the quality of the wine. As a rule, the better the wine, the warmer it should be served. An hour in the fridge is usually plenty of time to chill a wine. But if your wine’s on the pricey side, you should take it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you plan to drink it.
I love Sancerre, but it’s pretty expensive. Is there anything a bit cheaper I could try?
Although it often doesn’t say it on the label, Sancerre is actually made using Sauvignon Blanc grapes - which makes Sauvignon a great affordable alternative. There are some lovely zesty Sauvignons coming out of New Zealand, while Chile’s Leyda Valley is home to some tasty types of this popular white. If you’re a fan of Sancerre, give these a try and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Someone once told me Chablis is made from Chardonnay – is that true?
In a word: yes. All the wines in Chablis are made from Chardonnay grapes. Quite often, Chardonnay is linked with New World wines (such as Australia or the US) whose flavour is affected by the oak barrels they’re aged in, bringing in notes of vanilla, coconut or butter. Climate also affects the flavours of a Chardonnay; wines from cooler places like Chablis often have zesty citrus and apple notes. Meanwhile, those from warmer regions will have richer notes of pineapple and passion fruit.
