Chablis Château

Daniel DAMPT et Fils Grand Vin de Bourgogne 2008 Chablis, $17.10-$22.99, 91 points, I'm afraid this might not be so easy to find; I bought mine at Hannafords Supermarket (Londonderry) as a "close-out". However this is such a nice wine that I felt an obligation to those who like a clean Chardonnay and to present it as a great stand-alone White wine, but it was wonderful paired with boiled Maine Lobster and fried Sea scallops.
Having a silver-sunshine hue, aromatic hints of honeysuckle in tango with the lightest, elegant airs of citrus, and a subtle flavor of sweet pink grapefruit; this Chablis is crisp yet lush, balanced acidity in an underlying minerality.

Albert Bichot Domaine Long Depaquit 2009 Chablis, $17.99-$19.99, 86 points,
 seemed a bit too slate-like to me (unpleasantly so), but my son liked this wine very much. Light color, crisp, and a Chardonnay that will compliment oysters or  Gruyere cheese and sesame crackers.

Francine et Olivier Savary 2006 Chablis,$20-$30, 87 points, closely parallels the Albert Bichot, without the emphasis on slate, but begins with a light ginger-ale color, having aromas of butterscotch and lemon, with a smooth texture, and a flavor of lime, ending with a brisk grapefruit finish.
