Domaine Denis Race, Chablis Premier Cru 2014 Montmains, France
Tasting Note: An adventurous, Chablis-lover’s chardonnay.
This full-throttle, riper-styled Chablis combines full body with the sharp steeliness you expect from chardonnay produced in Chablis.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of ripe golden apple, lime citrus, pineapple, white peach and Asian pear.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied Chablis delivers ripe fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by tart, high acidity.
There is balance between the fruit and acidity and midpalate complexity that tickles.
Bottle Note: White Burgundy wine.
