2013 Marcel Servin Chablis
Sticking with the White Burgundies, I found this Chablis that was $18.99 at my Costco. As I mentioned in my previous review, I’m on a bit of a Burgundy kick at the moment. During the summer months, I really enjoy these French Chardonnays, and the ones from Chablis are also crisp, refreshing, and stainless fermented which really adds to the clarity of fruit (which I tend to prefer).
This is a nice find at Costco. I really enjoyed it. We made a spinach salad, with some fresh veggies from the garden, cranberries, feta, and almonds. It was a perfect summer treat alongside this wine.
The wine has a nose of citrus fruit, and in the mouth, pear, apple, and lemon flavors, all very vibrant since there’s no oak fighting for your palate. The wine has a little minerality to it, which I also like, and finishes with a little acidity, a healthy rush of fruit and a lingering citrus sensation. This is exactly why you buy a Chablis, and they are made for summer cuisine. On my last trip to France, Chablis was the go-to white for many meals I enjoyed with the locals I was with.
