Geology plays such an integral part in the mineral-scented, chalky soils of Chablis that it cannot be overlooked or diminished, giving it a uniquely defined sense of place comparable to the Mosel region of Germany. And these unoaked wines, glistening gold in the glass and bristling with acidity and ripe with citrus, mineral and russet apple flavors can be a pure joy to drink. Let me wax words by stating that Chablis is one of the most 'charmonious' white wines on earth, and the perfect foil for shellfish, lighter pasta dishes and soft cheeses.
