Chardonnay, Premier Cru Chablis, Kirkland Signature, AOC Chablis, France, 2019, 13.5% abv., US$17.79

dsc_2946While perusing the shelves at Costco Lihue, I picked this Premier Cru Chablis up for a song.

Aged inDSC_2944 stainless steel for a year, this was a great wine to enjoy in the warmth of Kauai on the lanai.  I did not want any wood on my wine, so I was in the market for some Chablis, and this one delivered.

On the eyes, it’s pale lemon with a nose of citrus, green apple and white flowers.  The palate has super acidity and flavours of lemon verbena, green hay, jasmine, chalk, and a rocky minerality.

Pierre Brissy is the winemaker but that’s the only proprietary information on this bottle.  This is a new winemaker for the Kirkland Chablis which started out in 2014 at US$14.99.  The buying power of this chain has kept it sub US$20 – and for a Premier Cru, white Burgundian wine, that’s an awesome deal.

If you can access this wine in the US, run, don’t walk, to pick some up.
