Wine Review: This light gold colored Chablis opens with an Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of apple and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Bosc pear with hints of ginger. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Chablis is made for food. I would pair it with popcorn shrimp. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Serve between 12 and 14C. The wine should be aired or carafed before tasting. It will reveal notes of white fruit such as peach, with a mineral structure. In the mouth, a stony sensation complements this pure, rounded wine.

Organic status: not organic

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
