Simonnet-Febvre Chabils 2009 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Bright apple and melon on the nose

Medium bodied on the palate

Tart finish with good acidity, citrus and mineral tones

Summary:

Chablis is remarkable wine!  Made from Chardonnay, it can exhibit tropical fruit and apple along with a tartness and acidity like no other Chardonnay in the world.  Top Chablis can age for several decades in the cellar, but this wine is meant to be enjoyed young.  It's extremely versatile with food and with the setting, so don't be afraid to pop the cork and pour this any time.  Expect to pay around $18 or so, and raise a glass!
