Wine Review: 2011 Domaine Servin Chablis Les Pargues
Ah Chablis. I'm certain I've written about my love for Chablis before, but in case you hadn't heard, I adore the stuff. Chablis is wine from the Chardonnay grape in the village of Chablis, in the Burgundy region of France.
Chablis is my absolute favorite expression of the Chardonnay grape. There is often little to no wood used in the winemaking process and the result is a bracing, refreshing, crisp, dry white wine, verging on austere, but still fresh with fruit.
Tonight's wine was simply lovely. The nose held a touch of lanolin and wool, along with lemon oil and zest. Bright acidity along with wonderful balance made it a joy. Would pair well with light dishes or anything that needs acidity. The only big problem with pairing Chablis is that you need to avoid anything sweet while you are drinking Chablis, against the acidity of the wine, it's definitely like drinking orange juice right after brushing your teeth.
