A Treasure Trove of Chablis: Purity and Minerality


A Treasure Trove of Chablis: Purity and Minerality

Wine Team New York |

Chablis is probably my favourite white wine. When made by good producers, its purity, minerality and quiet grace set Chablis apart from other wines. Among the producers, Dauvissat and Raveneau remain justly celebrated for their deep, intensely mineral wines which continue improving for decades.

The next tier down is a competitive space, filled with wonderful winemakers. Benoît Droin consistently turns out particularly elegant styles, so true to their terroirs. Over at Christian Moreau, the wines tend to have a bit more richness of fruit, without sacrificing any purity. Billaud-Simon is a stalwart producer whose wines are much improved in recent years.

Lavantureux is a good source of village wine, particularly the single vineyard Vauprin. Finally, Eleni and Edouard Vocoret's Bas de Chapelot has become almost a cult Chablis for its outstanding value proposition. And remember the name of the domaine - this young couple are doing exciting work.
