2012 Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier Chablis Croix aux Moines Beauroy

2012 Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier Chablis Croix aux Moines Beauroy. This wine reminds me more of a Puligny or Chassagne in that it is rounder, fuller and more suave than your average Chablis. It does have Chablis minerality but not the zing of the Chablis I usually drink. Works beautifully with baked salmon in a beurre blanc sauce though and it needs some real decanting time to settle into place. I would recommend an hour of air at least for this if you want to drink it now.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
