It is a wine ready to drink young. It is pleasant, fruity, light and lively.
Right from the first nose the rich, full fruit loaded personalty explodes and might surprise. After a couple seconds swirling it around a floral backdrop appears showing subtle acacia notes. The mouth confirms a rich attack and a fruity body superbly balanced by a beautiful tension that will make you check the label just to make sure it is indeed really "just" a Petit Chablis. The finale amplifies this feeling with an uncommon length and the structure based on freshness that supports the tasting for even longer seconds. Really made for sheer pleasure it turns out it really shines with qualities usually attached to its bigger brother Chablis.
Our culinary advice
It will give very well with snails and shellfish.
