Jean-Pierre & Alexandre Ellevin 2009 Chablis

This French white is from the Chablis region famed for their crisp, light wines made exclusively from Chardonnay.
France’s take on Chardonnay is a refreshing change from the oak attack of the big California Chards. The limestone soils of Chablis create a taut minerality and pleasant crispness.
In the glass the wine is a bright yellow with a hint of green. It has lemon and pear aroma.
The predominant taste for me was of green apple that rolled into a medium length clean finish.
This Chablis is an affordable French treat (about $20) that will sip well before or after dinner. It will also pair nicely with seafood or shellfish.
