Domaine Servin, 2008 Chablis Premiere Cuvee Les Pargues

At this time Chablis, of all the wines of Franceis the one that captivates me the most.
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.
