The perfect wine for a hot summer day. Not that we've had very many of them...This wine is like taking a deep breath of salty sea air while standing on a cliff that has tangerine trees growing on it. Ahhhhh.....
Very dry, yet very fruity palate, with citrus flavours. It is refreshing in any situation, and goes well with seafood or simply vegetable apetizers.
External Reviews for Château de Maligny Chablis
Bold, zingy scent; dry, but not harsh; pleasantly peppery. Summery.
If youandrsquo;re a fan of the heavily oaked, buttery Chardonnay style, white Burgundy is probably not for you. Winemaker Jean-Paul Durup says this fine wine is andldquo;like a Chassagne-Montrachet, but without the oak.andrdquo; Maligny has a very limited availability, so it would be wise to grab a case as soon as possible. Grapefruit and pear flavors on the palate complement a bright acidity. The finish is minerally, slightly grassy and very clean. Try this wine with stronger fish in buttery sauce, or with spicy food.
This delightful Chablis is golden in color, smooth rather than tangy, with hints of lemon, apples and just a bit of nuts. This is an ’06 that has shed the tropical notes of its youth and has taken on a texture of a somewhat polished, rounded exterior, all the while giving off pure Chablis nuances. Fairly opulent and ripe, this seduces with its supple texture and clean flavors. Medium-bodied, it kicks in with mineral, chalk and flint notes on the lingering finish. Pair this with Oysters Rockefeller or pan seared scallops.
A broad style, ripe and balanced on the soft side. Light apple and honey flavors end with moderate length. Drink now.
"Old vine" Chardonnay from a great producer and a profound vintage. Razor-sharp and lean, displaying classic mineral, quartz and vibrant acidity interwoven among green apples and pear.
This old-vine gem may be one of the best values in Chablis, with ripe fruit, offering melon, green apple and pear flavors, and crisp acidity.
Fresh and grassy with lemon zest and an intense, almost sizzling minerality. Underlying these more vibrant notes runs a warm and persistent vein of pear, honey and nutmeg. Dynamic, intense, and satisfying.
