Gilbert Picq Chablis, 2000


I thought I might have left this too long in the cellar. It's not a Grand Cru or even a Premier Cru. But no; Picq Chablis, at any level, ages well.

Deep lemon yellow. Aromatic breadth and depth--flint, minerals, lime. Acidity has been tamed a bit by time in the bottle but stony Chablis qualities are strong. Lemon curd on palate. Mellow and deep with a long finish. I need to buy more Chablis.
