Maison Dousset Petit Chablis 2020


Chablis really is the flavour of the month. A series of excellent vintages, prices far more realistic than those of neighbouring Burgundy and ever-increasing winemaking expertise are just some of the reasons we are enjoying more and more from this must-visit, picturesque region in France. Petit Chablis is the so-called next level down from Chablis, meaning that if you follow the good producers and vintages, you can find some excellent bargains. Part of the Domaine Millet stable, this is just that and under $30 for a top-notch Petit Chablis is a definite buy.

An attractive gleaming gold. The nose has mineral notes and a hint of sea-spray with a backing of stone fruit plus notably crisp pears. There is bright acidity to be found in this mid-length style. Good balance and while it might fade a fraction right on the finish, it drinks well above its station. Enjoy it now and for the next three to four years. If you are not familiar with a good Chablis, this is an ideal introduction.
