Courtault-Michelet Chablis
Domaine Courtault-Michelet
France - Burgundy - Chablis

This Chablis is produced from vineyards located on slopes benefiting from a mainly south, southwest sun exposure in villages of the Northwestern part of the Chablis area (Lignorelles, Beine, Villy and Chablis).
Golden colored and very aromatic with white flowers, fresh fruit, lime, citrus aromas as well as a bergamot. Pleasant mouthfeel, supple, crisp, fruity flavors. There is a touch of acidity, revealing a deliciously integrated minerality.

 "This wine's gentle nose gives just slight hints of cornmeal and sundried hay. The palate adds ripe notes of yellow pear that come with a gentle pear-peel texture augmented by yeastiness. Citrus concentration keeps this wine on the fresh, taut side despite the 2018 heat. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"
