Chablis

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. 

Domaine Brocard 2020 Ste. Claire Chablis 750ml

$50.35

Some of the vines here are over 70 years old. Even with a reticent, understated nose one can sense the energy and precision in this wine. There’s a lovely, creamy texture on the palate, with bright citrus notes and a long, lingering, savoury,...

Domaine Servin 2020 Chablis "Les Pargues" 750ml

$41.65

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...

Bernard Defaix 2020 Chablis 750ml

$51.21

This is actually aromatically quite similar to the Petit Chablis with perhaps just a bit more freshness. The sleek and delicious medium-bodied flavors possess good if not special density while displaying fine length on the slightly drier finale. This too...

Billaud-Simon 2020 Chablis "Tete d'Or" 750ml

Longer aged than the classic Chablis cuvée, with 25% matured in wood of different sizes. Plenty of weight and intensity from a selection of parcels just outside Montée de Tonnerre. Spicy, with some intriguing white pepper notes, Olivier...

Domaine Christian Moreau 2020 Chablis 750ml

$47.74

The 2020 Chablis Village has quite a powerful, primal bouquet, intense for a Village Cru, just like the 2019. The palate is well balanced with just a small reduction on the entry, and grapefruit and kiwi fruit flavors toward the chalky finish. Fine. --...

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...

Domaine Servin 2020 Chablis "Blanchot" Grand Cru 750ml

$91.21

Cool, pure and airy floral-suffused aromas are laced with citrus, iodine and brine. Once again there is fine density to the refined but punchy middle weight flavors that possess a beguiling texture on the tightly wound, compact and overtly mineral-driven...

Roland 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...

Brocard 2018 Chablis "Les Clos" Grand Cru 750ml

$173.82

The 2018 Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos" is sourced from the largest and most famous of the Grands Crus, because it is the historical cradle of Chablis vineyards. The vineyard, due to its south orientation, rests on a Kimmeridgian...
