2007 Alain Geoffroy Beauroy, AC Chablis 1er Cru
And now to the main event - Chablis premier cru wines are just about the most stunning examples of chardonnay in the world. Yes, there's Montrachet and the Côte d'Or, but Chablis wines are rich and sleek at the same time, brimming with electric energy and minerality. Sublime.
I love this wine. Saline minerality all around, ripe fruit, and so elegantly textured as to make you question whether your palate could be trusted. Delicious, I need to put more of these premier crus away.
