2015 Chablis

The purity of Chablis never fails to make me happy.  The 2015 J. Moreau & Fils basic Chablis is certainly no exception.  Sharp, tart fruit with hints of apples and lemon zest and an intense sense of minerality left no mistake where this wine originated.  Wonderful stuff at a sale price of $21.  It washed down a serving of shrimp lightly poached in shrimp stock with accents of garlic, ginger and lemongrass and finished with butter and red pepper flakes.   

The 2016 vintage in Chablis was horrendous with hail destroying a number of the vines.  I made the decision to stock up on the 2015 vintage that are just now coming to market.  I added four bottles of this wine.
