There are some delicious villages Chablis from some superb producers of that area (mostly from the different Moreau family producers) at very reasonable prices currently available with our inventory selection, and one of my favorites is this lovely Gem from Louis Moreau. Presenting its style as an evolved, single vineyard Premier Cru with the bouquet and in the mouth, this lush, distinctive, classic Chablis shows a pronounced nose of lime-zest, green apple, and casaba melon-like fruit supported by that traditional slate-like to wet-river stone-like characteristics, all of which carries across in its clean, mouthwatering palate impression. With excellent acid structure and nice lingering freshness on the finish, this Gem, according to The Bean, will be one of our house whites for this month and beyond. GREAT VALUE!!! DON’T MISS THIS!!! ***** 12.5% ABV *****
Drink from 2016 to 2020

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Chablis

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
