Chablis Vaillons

"O Oysters, come and walk with us"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk.
 Along the briny beach.."

Lewis Carroll, Through The Looking Glass - The Walrus and the Carpenter
The wine was a 2007 Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons.  The location was the midwest of the United States but the sensation was a salt marsh by the ocean with the wind blowing in from offshore.  Salty, refreshing, tart and crisp, invigorating, appetite inducing and comforting all at the same time.  Salty sea and limestone aromas sat atop a taste of pink grapefruit, lime zest and super crisp apple.  Extremely high on the pleasure scale.

2007 Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Premier Cru, Vaillons.  13% alcohol and $45.
