Gilbert PicQ 2009

Chablis doesn't get as much attention as Burgundy which is a shame as I think I prefer them in general to their more prestigious neighbours.

Gilbert PicQ 2009

This little number starts out with some struck flint and lime concentrate but after a while moves into a smoky oyster shell flavour mixed with dried flowers.  It isn't has minerally as a lot of Chablis but that doesn't distract from the joy of the flavours. There is a spine of nice acidity and a very long length of flavour with a bit of richness from an orange rind component.  While I don't think this is for the long haul it does provide a lot of enjoyment at this stage.
