2016 Domaine Millet Chablis 1er Cru Vacoupin

Such a quintessential Chablis. Not huge or overly concentrated but simply citrus, yellow autumnal fruit, seaside bracing, nutty lactics and an unstoppable reach for another glass. It’s got that mouthwatering acidity. So good with fresh Turbot from a Paris market. Terroir threatened by a warming world and a fish under threat from its own scrumptiousness. Sort of troubling something so good could be in trouble. No other Chardy tastes like this.

13% alcohol. Cork alas. 26 euros from the appropriately named Caprice de l’Instant in the 4eme.

92 points if you must.
