Petit Chablis

Petit Chablis 

On the bottom of the Chablis hierarchy, Petit Chablis is often from lesser sites and sometimes not on the Kimmeridgian soils that make Chablis taste like Chablis. I often find that a Petit Chablis is like a Non-Vintage Champagne in that it reflects the producer’s house style more than site or vintage. The best are wonderful, just like a small Chablis and they can be wonderfully cheap too

Chablis 

The Kimmeridgian soils that make Chablis taste like Chablis is evident in these wines. They have more definition of the region and more structure than a Petit Chablis. But without the fruit weight and intensity of the better sites. Great wines for drinking young or youngish.

Chardonnay 

The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool-climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
