Initially, I drank this by itself and thought it was a bit flabby for a proper Chablis (maybe this is related to the warm 2015 vintage?). Had that chalkiness, green apple and decent acidity, but on day 2, paired with mild Italian sausage, roasted red potatoes w/ fennel and rosemary, and garlicky roasted broccoli, the little extra meat on this wine’s bones really shined. Even put some Dijon mustard on the plate and again (maybe some geographic psynergy) this had enough fruit and creaminess to hold up to the spice and vinegar. If I bought this again I’d definitely plan for some food to bring out its best qualities. Rating 9.0 for the pairing but 8.7 on its own.

Surprisingly tasty! Fresh with a classic Chablis nose. Impressive for the 2015 vintage
