Chalky Chablis

Domaine Jean Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Lechet 2015, Burgundy, AUD $65

Chablis is a candidate for the world’s most mineral wine. Good Chablis, that is, and this is a ripper. Chalky is the classic description. This one adds honey, straw and various other stony/mineral notes as well as a hint of root vegetable. A wine of refinement and persistence. (Cork)
