Champ Royaux Chablis has a very fresh bouquet with notes of citrus and whitefleshed fruit, with a very slightly oaky finish. Fresh and supple, the wine is marked by mineral notes that are typical of the appellation. 100% Chardonnay.
Pair with fish dishes, grilled or in a light sauce; various seafood and oysters.
Now that it has been in bottle for a while, the 2010 Chablis Champs Royaux (maison) has begun to soften and acquire slightly more developed aromas and flavors. It shows excellent depth and pure dimension for the vintage, with a lovely balance of richness, aromatic nuance and minerality. This is another gorgeous entry-level offering.
Closed for now, this gives hints of green pear and dusty talc. It's light and delicate, needing bottle age to evolve.
A highly expressive nose of flower, citrus and plenty of sea shore nuances leads to very fresh and racy flavors that are at once delicious and refreshing while culminating in a dry and long finish that displays a hint of Sauvignon Blanc-like character.
