Domaine Laroche Chablis “Saint Martin”

Domaine Laroche 2016 Chablis “Saint Martin” ($21.99)

Domaine Laroche

Clear gold, pale and transparent. Fresh, tart apple aromas and a whiff of white wildflowers. Mouth-filling, elegant apple and pear flavors give way to chalky minerality, framed by crisp, palate-cleansing acidity and moderate 12% alcohol. U.S. importer: Wilson Daniels LLC, St. Helena, Calif. (Nov. 22, 2018)

FOOD MATCH: The winery suggests it as an aperitif or with seafood, prawns or fish. You can’t go wrong with turkey breast meat.

WHEN TO DRINK: Chablis can age and evolve, but good cellar conditions are required. The sturdy metal screw cap assures a clean wine, but I wouldn’t recommend this modest wine for long-term aging. Drink over the next few years.

It’s a fine value for young Chablis in the lower $20s; shows a $23 average U.S. retail.
