Domaine Gendraud-Patrice, Petit Chablis, Burgundy, France, 2019
GREEN APPLE, WHITE FLOWERS, FLINT. BRIGHT & BRACING.
Petit Chablis is the refreshing, easier-drinking version of Chablis, meant to be enjoyed young. This version serves up classic slatey minerality and citrus flavors as well as strong, palate-cleansing acidity, all supported by satisfying weight and roundness. Christophe Patrice, who comes from a long line of winemakers, set up his own vineyards in 2007, and in 2011 he teamed up with wife Aurélie Gendraud to create Domaine Gendraud-Patrice.
Serving Suggestion: Caesar salad w/ a Parmesan crisp. Steamed mussels w/ frîtes. Grilled sardines. Ham or vegetable terrine.
