Chablis Always Delivers

The poster child for terroir makes a different kind of Chardonnay statement

2011 Domaine Seguinot-Bordet Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 13% $29

A bit yeasty on the nose, with lots of fresh fruit aromas hinting at sweet peaches and pears over a base of lemon curd with dusty chalk mineral notes and an raw almond edge.

This is quite impressive in the mouth, with lots of creamy edges and leesy notes but the vibrant acidity here keeps this fresh and focused. There's a lot of almond-streaked lemon peel flavor here, touched with a hint of pear skin and laden with rocks on the back end and through the long, slightly youthful rustic finish that ends with hints of melony fruit and a little aromatic allspice. 92 points
