2003 Jean Marc Brocard-Fourchaume (Chablis Premiere Cru)

This 2003 Chablis was recommended to us by an associate at Sherry-Lehmann (http://www.sherry-lehmann.com/) who thought it would be a nice "complimentary contrast" to the buttered sole we were having that night. The recommendation was a good one.

This complex wine is straw yellow in color with floral notes mixed in with hay. I also thought the nose reminded me of seaside air. Fresh with a great balance of sweetness to acidity along with a honeyed texture. It's a structured wine with a nice lingering finish.

Sherry-Lehmann sells this wine for $29 but I know I've seen it elsewhere in New York.
