I’m typically a big fan of the Chablis I find at my Costcos, particularly this time of the year when it’s hot out and a good clean Chardonnay really hits the spot.
They usually come in at a reasonable price, like this bottle did at $15.99, and offer the quality of a bottle that costs much more. When you look online or at your local wine shop, most good Chablis are north of $20, so finding these rather inexpensive Costco offerings is a real score.
Slight burnt bronze yellow on the pour, citrus fruit on the nose; pretty acidic and tarty in the mouth with more citrus fruit, green apple, apricot; very crisp and refreshing; clean, no oak influence so the flavor really powers through.
You can pair this wine with just about anything but seafood would be really ideal; scallops, halibut, oysters, anything along those lines would be amazing. We enjoyed it on its own, outside on a warm August day, and really enjoyed it.
Well worth the $16 price tag, this is quality Chardonnay that is right there with many of the other awesome French whites we’ve reviewed lately.
