Domaine Louis Jadot, Chablis 2013, Pontanevaux, France
Tasting Note: A perfect wine to serve at the start of a dinner from a grape that many have never experienced or bought themselves.
A golden-colored Chablis with a nose of lemon and lime chalk and slightly under-ripe white grape.
Your palate will water in anticipation of the impending medium-plus acidity to come. Aromas on the nose continue to the palate and taste as if you’d dropped a slice of lemon and lime in chalk and served it up in a glass.
This medium-plus acidity Chablis is round in your mouth and serves as a great palate cleanser with its green fruit characteristics that infuse the majority of the taste.
Bottle Note: Origin: From the famed Chablis region located in the northern part of Burgundy, this wine is made without oak to show off the elegant aromas and flavors of chardonnay. Grape: 100 % Chardonnay. Flavor: Lively citrus notes with stone fruits and a hint of spice. Pairing: Delicious on its own or with fish, shellfish, poultry or cheese.
