Silky-smooth on entry; begins fresh, then expands and intensifies without losing its grip. Boasts very good tension to its flavors of yellow fruits and minerals and finishes with excellent length.

The concentrated and attractively textured flavors possess plenty of palate coating dry extract before culminating in a clean, dry and lingering finish. This is a balanced and restrained wine of class and refinement...

91The Wine Advocate

The palate is balanced with supremely well-judged acidity, plenty of verve here with a keen citric finish that is only beginning to show what it can do.

Real sinewy intensity. Quality shines through. Great depth and then diamond-cutting sharpness. Great stuff.


France, Burgundy, Chablis, Moutonne

Chablis is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located just 110 miles southeast of Paris. It is also one of the region’s most historic, and by some measures most under-rated, appellations. In the 19th century Chablis included 100,000 acres of vineyards and supplied Paris with much of its red and white wine. Today Chablis has just 7,000 acres of AOC vineyards, having lost many to the 19th century phylloxera scourge. Chablis is admired by white wine cognoscenti, however, for its Chardonnays, which are notably different from the Chardonnays produced further south. Chardonnay is the only grape grown for the Chablis appellation – there are no red wines. Chablis has seven Grand Cru vineyards and twenty-two Premier Crus. Given its northern location, harvests are not dependable in Chablis. But in good years the wines are generally described as “flinty,” meaning more acidic, steely, austere and mineral tasting than the fuller, fruitier Chardonnays of the Côte d’ Or. In the 20th century, Chablis’ wider recognition as a venerable wine-producing region suffered from the fact that bulk wine producers in California and Australia made unappealing white jug wine blends of various white grapes, rarely including Chardonnay, which they marketed as “Chablis.”


White Wine, Chardonnay, Chablis Grand Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
