This ticks every box for afficionados of classic Chablis. It comes from an acclaimed family (winemakers here for centuries), a tip-top vintage and one of the appellation¿s finest Premier Cru vineyards. Crisp, citrusy, stony fresh and very elegant.
Domaine Servin is an excellent Chablis cellar that combines tradition ' François Servin is the sixth generation to make wine at the historic estate ' with cutting edge dynamism (his brother in law winemaker is American). When you add a good vintage like 2012 and hand picked grapes from a Premier Cru vineyard, you can expect immaculate Chablis of great complexity and finesse. Through the centuries, the astute Servin family have acquired vines on the very best sites ' Premier Cru Vaillons is one of their most prized. Few wines manage to express the limestone soil and sunny aspect of this coveted plot quite as succinctly as this high calibre, mineral edged 2012. A heavenly partner for oysters, pan-fried scallops or sauced white meats.
