Founded in 1654, the Servin family "continues to number among Chablis's most reliable addresses" (Wine Advocate). Today their lovingly restored Les Pargues vineyard produces Premier Cru quality (as it was pre World War I) and offers superb value.
Once itself an official Premier Cru vineyard, Les Pargues sits between Premiers Crus Montmains and Vaillons, the Chablis from which sets you back up to £30 a bottle. The difference is Les Pargues was abandoned during World War I and declassified – understandable then, but not now when you taste the quality. In the 1950s the Servin family began to restore their plot and now 50-year-old vines deliver wine of impressive concentration. Only local politics prevent it from being reinstated to its rightful status. Seventh-generation custodian François Servin now lavishes Premier Cru attention on his vineyard, ensuring wine with the honeyed citrusy minerality of great Chablis. Serve gently chilled with seafood or white meats or a creamy risotto.
"When you want the quality of Premier Cru Chablis, but not the price – a fine French classic"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for Burgundy
