MAISON ALBERT BICHOT Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Blanc Domaine Long-Depaquit

Region: Burgundy

Nature: White

Grape: Chardonnay

Aroma: Floral notes followed by subtle notes of oak and fresh fruit.

Body & Taste: Good structure on the palate. This wine is tangy, well-balanced and shows the lovely fullness one expects from a Premier Cru. A combination of linden blossom and almond give way to a long, rounded finish.

Suggested Food Pairing: Try it with dill-marinated salmon served with a warm leek and balsamic vinegar flan for the contrast of flavors. Grilled chicken, with crispy skin and moist meat is a good counterpoint to the oaky finish of this defined wine.

Mineral finish.
