Damned-good Chablis

This was quite delicious with the chicken I roasted earlier.

A lovely nose of earthy complexity and plenty of nuttiness. There is some lovely lemon fruit there as well. I am quite surprised by the degree of maturity displayed on the nose; this smells very much up for drinking. There is real density and weight on the palate, but the great minerality and wonderful acidity keep this well-balanced. The fruit is quite delicious and the finish is very long and pleasing. I don’t think there is much point in keeping this wine any longer, I am under the impression it has peaked and will not get any better. It is quite tasty, though.
