92Wine Spectator

...has lemon pie flavors coursing through it, framed by flint and light toasted spice accents, all backed by a beam of lively acidity that drives the lingering aftertaste.

Discreet wood can be found on the floral-suffused nose of both white and yellow orchard fruit that reflects notes of spice, quinine, tidal pool and a subtle hint of citrus influence. There is good refinement to the vibrant and rich but appealingly delineated flavors that dance across the palate on the lingering and saline-inflected finale.

...pretty bouquet...lively with yellow plum and orange zest. Balanced with fine acidity, the palate is taut and fresh with good depth and faint hints of marzipan towards the expressive finish...delicious...


France, Burgundy, Chablis

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, 1er (Premier) 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.
