Simmonet-Febvre Petit Chablis, France 2012 $19 Value: great

The chalky mineral aroma takes me straight to Chablis. Creamy lees notes, too; a whiff of shellgrit and a trace of honey starting up. It’s dry but soft on the tongue, light-bodied, with a softness and balance that make it very enjoyable, although it’s fairly straightforward. Now to two years. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 88/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: oysters
