2006 Verget Chablis "Terroir de Fleys"
Chablis, Burgundy, France
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $14.58 (North Berkeley Wine Imports)
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

Ripe, soft, pure, balanced Chablis displaying lime peel and fairly rich roasted-apple fruit along with subtle herb and yeast flavors. Not profound, but crisp, refreshing, and mouth-filling for a Burgundy in this price range. Tastes amazingly fresh and young at age 5, so this is one data point indicating that screw-cap bottles (such as this one) can hang in there for a few years. [Purchased on sale some years ago; current price would be higher.] - HK 2011-05-12
