Chablis

chablis-grand-cru-vineyards.jpgCocktailSteward / CC BY

Although it is classified as part of Burgundy, Chablis differs markedly from the rest of that region in terms of its location (almost as close to Sancerre as it is to the Côte D'Or) and the character of the Chardonnay grown and vinified there. Chardonnay from Chablis is famous for its mineral, steely texture, as compared to the broader, rounder Chardonnays from the Côte de Beaune. The clay-limestone soils contain fossilized oyster shells, and appropriately there's no better wine to wash down oysters on the half shell. 

Billaud-Simon 2020 Chablis 750ml

$59.04

A slightly cooler and quite pretty nose speaks mostly of citrus and quinine along with whiffs of iodine. The delicious and more vibrant medium weight flavors possess both good delineation and minerality while offering a more appealing texture on the...

More evident Chablis character is present on the nose of green fruit, mineral reduction, sea breeze and shellfish scents. There is markedly better density to the solidly powerful and very attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a dry...

Louis Michel & Fils 2019 Petit Chablis 750ml

$40.78

A fruity and mildly exotic nose reflects just enough typicity to be interesting. The racy and nicely intense middle weight flavors possess a subtle minerality on the dry and crisp finale. This isn't particularly complex, but I like the refreshing...

Domaine Servin 2020 Chablis "Cuvee Massale" 750ml

$46.00

Pungent aromas of wood and reduction render the nose impossible to read accurately. More interesting are the concentrated flavors as the old vines are very much in evidence thanks to the abundant dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the...

Domaine Servin 2020 Chablis "Bougros" Grand Cru 750ml

$91.21

Moderate wood stops short of being invasive on the mostly white fleshed fruit suffused nose of mineral reduction and briny water. The succulent but dense and powerful bigger-bodied flavors possess plenty of sappy dry extract that does a good job of...

Lavantureux 2019 Chablis 750ml

$49.47

Salty tangs of oyster shell and crushed limestone accent this fresh-fruited wine. Yellow plum, apple and grapefruit flavors are ripe and juicy but it's a briskly balanced, medium-bodied sip lifted by crisp lime acidity and a lean, steely finish. Lovely...
