Well-known for its unique personality and distinctive minerality, Chablis pairs impeccably with oysters. The wine tasting will include the following:

Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2017
Fevre Domaine Estate 2017
Fevre Saint Bris 2017
Fevre Chablis Vaillons
Henriot Blanc De Blancs

Cheers — we look forward to seeing you on the 5th!

Chablis is the northernmost winegrowing area of Burgundy, but it’s geographically closer to Champagne than the Côte d’Or. That makes for a cooler climate, which translates to higher natural acidity in its wines. Like other white Burgundies, Chablis is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, but two primary factors set its flavor profile apart. For one, the soil type found in the area is Kimmeridgian – a sort of mineral-rich clay laced with marine fossils. Yes, that means there are actually traces of oyster shells in the soil where the vines grow. Second, producers tend to use less oak, both in fermenting and aging their wines. The result is a racy, fresh, minerally complex palate that screams for shellfish (or really, anything).
