“This young Chablis is singing right out of the gate: you’ll find generous ripe fruit, a dense, tightly knit backbone, and a full-flavored, zesty finish of citrus and stone. There is plenty of Chablis typicity, with enough body to stand up to richer fare as well as delicate seafood dishes. It’s no coincidence vigneron Arnaud Lavantureux was named Best Young Talent of the Chablisien by his peers.” – Anthony Lynch
An appellation in Burgundy and pristine style of wine all in itself. Chablis lies on the most-northern end of Burgundy, France where the weather is cool and the acidity is high. Fun fact about Chablis: the only grape varietal permitted in this region is Chardonnay. Chablis also has this special Kimmeridgean soil composed of limestone, clay, and fossilized oyster shells making these wines especially unique and a perfect pairing to drink with oysters and seafood! Chardonnay from Chablis can show pleasantly ripe, concentrated, citrus fruits with mouth-watering high acidity. Some producers age a portion of their wines in old oak to give them a rounder texture and relaxed flavor palate or keep the entire yield in stainless steel or concrete to preserve the pure fruit flavor. Chablis also has a vineyard hierarchy where the lesser/flatter lands may be labeled as Petit Chablis. The higher designated vineyard sites may be labeled as premier cru or grand cru. Age these beauties, or enjoy now with a full order of Oysters to share.
