chablis

Given their signature refreshing acidity, the wines of Chablis go ever so nicely with warm afternoon and evenings of spring and summer, especially when one is enjoying a delectable spread of seafood.  So here are four palate pleasers available for $25 or less.  Cheers!

Jean-Marc Brodcard 2014 Petit Chablis

Region: Burgundy, France

Price: 15-20

Tasting Notes:

Aromatics of lemons, grapefruits, and limes are accented by whispers of minerals on the nose. The palate reveals flavors of vivid citrus fruits along with notes of minerals. A wine with plenty of zip, open a bottle next time you have an Asian-style Shrimp stir-fry.
