Some say that, though the Chardonnay grape is one of the most widely planted in the world, it is here, on the Kimmeridgian (and Portlandian) soil of Chablis, that it finds the greatest harmony with its terroir. The soil is named after the Dorset village of Kimmeridge, where one also finds this interesting geological formation. The village also gives its name to the period. Kimmeridgian soil is basically a mixture of limestone and clay with billions of tiny, fossilized oyster shells, hence the common recommendation to pair Chablis with shellfish.

  • Sarl Jean Collet Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2017

    Snoothrank:

Collet does not disappoint with this Vaillons: the light, dilute apple juice yellow colour invites, as does the bouquet of fresh-cut McIntosh Apple, light ginger, vanilla and gun metal. The entry is smooth, with a hint of caramel, and some pear and apple. Not steely dry... there is some sweetness and a hint of oak treatme... Read More
