Tasting and food pairings
the wine has a lovely shimmer and is of a pretty golden colour with green reflections. The rich and complex nose is characterized by pleasant and subtle floral and mineral aromas. It has a wonderful structure in the mouth with minerality and the charming typical chardonnay aromas. It is a harmonious wine that is not only fine and elegant but also has an excellent aromatic persistence.
Best drunk cold with oysters, shellfish, fish and goats cheese.

There's an attractive, sweet, floral fragrance here with a fresh, ripe melon and pear core. Some light peach flavor on the palate, too. Fresh, easygoing style.

If you're looking for the elegance for which Chablis are famous for, here it is. This has great balance of citrus and flinty characteristics. Good depth but only medium body. A long and rather complex finish. Drink or hold.

The 2015 Chablis Village has an upfront bouquet with Granny Smith apples and light smoky scents. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, notes of cooking apple and pear. Not bad for a 2015 Chablis and it should drink nicely over the next 3-5 years. Drink 2016-2020.

Honey, apple, and flint flavors are the hallmarks of this white, which is round but has good cut. Long lime-and-stone finish. Drink now through 2021.
