Chablis "Les Beaumonts"
Producer: Dampt Frères
Wine Style: White
Region: North Burgundy, Chablis
Désignation: Chablis "Les Beaumonts"
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Description: The color is rather light - pale greeny-gold. The nose is very fresh, lively and mineral with flint, green apple, lemon. Notes of lime-flower, mint, and acacia occur, as do aromas freshly-cut hay. Age deepens the color and adds a note of spice to the bouquet. On the palate, these aromas retain their freshness for an extended period. Perky and full of juice, the attack is intense. Long and likeable persistence leads to a smooth and serene finish. Very dry and impeccably delicate, our Chablis has a unique and readily recognisable personality. Serving temperature: 10 to 11°C.
Food Pairing: It can be enjoyed young (2-3 years old) with fish or poultry terrines, or with grilled or poached fish. It also goes well with asparagus, which is normally difficult to match, as well as exotic cuisine: it can handle curries or tandoori dishes and it also balances out the mellow and subtle texture of sushi. Or you could simply drink it as a splendid pre-dinner drink.
It harmonizes well with goat cheeses, as well as Beaufort, Comté, or Emmental.
