La Chablisienne Petit Chablis Pas si Petit 2016
Very pale-green-colored wine. Brilliant aspect. Fresh bouquet; honeysuckle to start then evolving towards orange. A flavor of lime dominates the tasting, giving this wine instant freshness. This refreshing quality is quickly counterbalanced by a pleasant bitterness along with conspicuous saltiness, indicating the authentic Chablis origin. The finish is prolonged by lingering notes of citrus peel. A fresh, young wine to appreciate today—as an aperitif or with seafood. After a few months cellaring this wine will become less feisty and will accompany any grilled fish.
100% Chardonnay. Since 1923 at Chablis in Burgundy, the meticulous care of the winegrowers working together under the banner of La Chablisienne has given birth to wines whose magnificence is amplified by the passage of time. These wines, coming from a mosaic of vineyard plots, provide a pallet of emotions marked with a truly mineral touch. There's nothing "little" about this "Petit Chablis" appellation wine! It comes from a terroir with clay and limestone formed in Portlandian geological times and is made from chardonnay vines that overlook the entire Chablis area.
