Chablis, Burgundy, France
13.0% alc/vol
$35.95 (BC)

The slight greenish tinge to this straw-yellow Chablis 1er Cru introduces a bit of a “green” theme with this wine, but that’s not a bad thing. Indeed, this is an interesting and very satisfying wine. The nose is dominated by yeasty bread dough with mineral and a flinty brininess and a hint of green canned veggies. The palate is intense and dry with a mouthwatering acidity. Mouth-filling pear, apple and citrus flavours are accented with herbal/spicy anise notes. Medium-full bodied, well integrated alcohol and a clean, crisp, spicy and long mineral finish. Elegant and very good quality Chablis under screwcap (Bravo!). Drink now or hold short term.
