Two 2007 Chablis
I’ve got something of a soft spot for Chablis, and if given the choice will naturally gravitate towards it on a really good wine list. Not expensive in terms of the quality either.
These are two pretty basic AC Chablis, but still present some very reliable and quite correct drinking for not much dollars. I think I’d prefer to drink AC Chablis a little bit younger, but there still be pleasure here. Both wines imported by Barrique Fine Wines
Domaine Moreau Naudet Chablis 2007 (Chablis, France)
12.5%, Cork, $25
Of the two this definitely looked the more appreciably classic, carrying a lime juice, oyster shells and cream nose. Palate is quite broad and showing some bottle age fat and richness, finishing a touch flabby. It’s probably at its peak now and provides plenty of Chablis character for the dollars. Simply drinkable. 16.7/89
Domaine Billaud Simon Chablis 2007 (Chablis, France)
12.5%, Cork, $36
Interestingly, I’m not sure if this is actually the more drinkable wine of the two, though it’s definitely got the better structure. It’s a quite lean wine, with a chalky, grapefruit driven nose, backed by a sour and dry palate marked by quite chalky acidity. Perhaps a little sullen, this gets the nod thanks to some extra length and acidity. Again a pleasant drink. 16.9/89
