Chablis is a wine region in the northwest corner of Burgundy in France, that uses 100% Chardonnay grapes to produce some of the finest white wines.
Wines from Chablis are rarely oaked and are usually described as dry and light-bodied with aromas of citrus and white flowers. The cool climate and Kimmeridgian and Portlandian subsoil, produce a flint-like minerality and crisp acidity that makes Chablis closer in palate to Sauvignon Blanc than the typical oaky Chardonnays of warmer climate wines from California and Australia.
The Chablis region is classified in four different appellations: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Premier Cru Chablis, and Grand Crus Chablis. Each appellation has a unique terroir that characterises the wine and this month we would like to offer a discovery of Chablis, with three bottles from three different appellations, by the acclaimed producer: Domaine Louis Michel et Fils.
The Chablis Discovery Box is $215 (UP$268) and includes the following wines:
- One bottle of Louis Michel Chablis 2018
- One bottle of Louis Michel 1er Cru Butteaux 2016
- One bottle of Louis Michel Grand Cru Les Clos 2015
