2008 Simonnet-Febvre Petit Chablis

Variety Chardonnay
RRP 19

Petit chablis is at the lowest end of the Chablis appellation classification. The most prized are the seven grand cru sites but that doesn't mean petit chablis isn't enjoyable — it's just uncomplicated. Simonnet-Febvre is an old and respected producer. This wine — under screw cap — reveals fine, lemony acidity, oyster shell and honeysuckle notes, with a soft, round palate. It's ultra-fresh, vibrant and pristine.
