SKU #1425346 96 points Decanter

K&L Notes

Perhaps no other region in Burgundy has undergone a greater turnaround. Chablis went from being one of the most important wine regions in France to almost extinction in the 1950s, and then back to a thriving, excelling region. This is an exciting wine, with vibrant citrus notes, zesty flavors of sea breeze, wet stone, and a hint of minerality. A smart choice for crab season or as an aperitif, the 2017 de Chemilly is the quintessential Chablis value.

This Chablis is a refreshing blast of cool, bright winter morning air after a snowfall. The clean aromas show sunny lemon and fresh pear while the palate is lean, crisp and citrus-focused. It completes with a long, saline finish assisted by razor-sharp acidity. Great value!

Distinctively mineral style of Chablis with fabulous chalky notes shining on the palate. This is a pure and bright wine, with clean, mouthwatering acidity and crunchy citrus fruit. Beautifully crafted, it carries on seamlessly on the palate and leaves a long, juicy finish. Great match for any given seafood, and, personally for me, just delicious on its own.

This is a fantastic entry-level Chablis. Aromas of the ocean breeze, white flowers and citrus rise from the glass. The palate is electric with flavors of orchard fruits and citrus nicely buffered by racy acidity and crisp tannins. The wine is remarkably full-bodied with surprising richness and structure. The finish is outstanding with length and vibrancy. I really enjoyed this wine and will definitely be buying some for myself this holiday season.
Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2021

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, M√Ęcon, 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.
