New Year's Sparklers 2012
Even with prior knowledge as to the fortuitous ability of 2015 to reel in one’s Chablis emotions and to know that the most-consistent Chablis AOC Champs Royaux will not disappoint, I am of course, nevertheless and without fail, smitten in full abide. Bright fruit, check. Salinity, check. Minerality, check. Expert blending, check. Second to none affordable and exceptional food pairing ability, check. It can’t be overstated. The vintage combines ripeness, freshness and mineral intensity with sheer, utter and unequivocal drinkability. What more is there? Drink 2017-2019. Tasted February 2017.
