March Wine Club: Chablis Thu, Mar 12, 2020 — 6:00PM
The Chablis region is the northernmost wine district of the Burgundy region in France. The cool climate of this region produces wines with more acidity and flavors less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates. All of Chablis' Grand Cru vineyards and Premier Cru vineyards are planted on primarily Kimmeridgean soil which is composed of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells. These wines often have a "flinty" note, and are prized for their wonderful minerality and purity of flavor. The Chablis Appellation d'origine contrôlée is required to use only Chardonnay grapes. Jeff Eastman, Vice President, and European Brands manager for L’eft Bank Wine Company will be our presenter for the evening.
Price is $35 per person for a single session, and $225 for the entire season, which includes the annual wine dinner on Thursday, April 9. All sessions begin at 6 PM, and take place on the second Thursday of each month.
