Chablis is like drinking pure water from the Alps making its way through a Tour de France via miles of stone aqua-duct, to a rarefied finish in the fields and orchards of orange and lemon blossoms, where the night air transmutes the heavenly dew into bitter-sweet memories.
Okay, okay, enough of that!
Domaine Servin 2008 Chablis, $14.29-$19.99, 90 points, is all the above, and three of us emptied that beautiful "nectar" in less than an hour; at 12.5% alcohol, no one was in danger of falling down, but the sad (Good) thing was I had only the one bottle.
The word across the table was "citrus" on the nose, early, mid, and late palate, awash in stone. Refreshing, crisp, and totally drink-able, were the other adjectives.
How can you go wrong with this? We paired this Chablis with barbecue chicken and potato salad with seeded rye.
