Emerald straw color. Aromas of ripe pears and apricots, slate, dried white florals, and almond cookie with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a complex, long candied pineapple, toasted coconut, barley tea, and lemon-ginger finish with moderate oak flavor. Balance and nuance star in this pure, silky Chablis that is ready to drink or cellar.

Burgundy Chablis

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
Chablis is a region of Burgundy that mainly produces oaked and unoaked Chardonnay-based wines known for their steely, concentrated, rich, and ageable character. The grapes in this region grow in a unique soil known as "Kimmeridgean" that is rich in limestone, clay, and millions of fossilized oyster shells that are said to impart a flinty flavor to the wine.
