This is a young Chablis. Winos will insist that Chablis is worthy, if not dependant, on a few years of cellaring, but since this is a half bottle size – I will open up my Drouhin Chablis toute-de-suite.
Gorgeously inviting on the nose. Floral, mineral, fruit… lots of promise indeed.
The gulp does not disappoint. First of all I am lucky to be tasting this at home, under great circumstances and optimal serving temperature. The fruit is a great balance of citrus and green apple, the mineral adds depth. It is crisp and clean. And not that expensive. Keep this in mind if you want a Chablis ready to go…. and with the convenience of a half bottle you allow yourself to open a bottle mid week and not worry about how to store left over wine, or to serve with an appetizer when the main dish calls for a red wine and a whole bottle would be just too much.
Musical Match: Young, fresh, lively, crisp, natural describe this 2010 Joseph Drouhin Chablis as well as “Morning Song” by emerging talent We are the City. These guys are ready to rock now, and will only get better with age… Good Stuff, it’s a Hit!
