Chablis Always Delivers

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

2010 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons $20

Tight nose, if a bit waxy, with perfumey hints of hint of spice and fennel over a base of low dusty chalk, dry apple peel and lime pith notes. This shows a surprising hint of spice on entry and remains nice and firm, if broad, on the palate with a tissue-thin lightness to the very lemony fruit. Notes of stones and mineral emerge on the backend and linger on the moderately long finish. 89 points
