Samuel Billaud 2017 Chablis, Burgundy, France
Oui, Oui to this elegant and delicious white Burgundy! Swishing this beauty in the glass lets loose the yellow flower, citrus and lightly chalky aromatics specific to really good Chablis. The palate is medium bodied, fleshy and perfectly mineral with a satiny yet saline finish. Have a hard time loving Chardonnay? Please go for this beauty - it will change your mind about this special grape.
This wine begs to be paired with oysters with a squeeze of lemon, but is versatile enough to partner with any fish dish, vegetable soup, and lots of cheeses including goat cheese and washed rind cheeses.
