2020 Petit Chablis
Pure, unadulterated Chablis. There’s a reason we all call it’s name, like an old friend. Such a reliable, magical place for wine. Plenty of honey, wax, lemon blossom. Ripe quince and lanolin, rippling minerals. Great Christmas wine. Pull this out and impress someone.
Chablis has an air of mysticism around it. Precious, fossil filled soils and a vibrant history tend to lend to such. Sebastien Christophe’s domaine and vineyards are in the commune of Fyé, across the river from the town of Chablis. The hills are steep and overlook Les Clos, Blanchots and Montee de Tonnerre. These wines are the work of someone who really wants to retain the precision and balance of all exceptional Chablis, whilst making his own quite noticeable stamp too. Low yields and organic production mean very concentrated and pure expressions of fruit.
