We’ve got some great news for white wine lovers out there in Hong Kong – there’s a new Chablis in town. This wine from Domaine Bersan Chablis ($195) carries notes of lemon and minerals as well as some warming notes of fresh bread. It’s exquisite, and perfect for sipping on a sunny day.
What’s the deal with Chablis? We obviously love wine, but let’s be honest: there are a lot of pretenders out there. This is particularly true of Chablis, a unique French variety of Chardonnay. You might see the name thrown about a bit, but Chablis is a lot like Champagne in that there is only one. If it’s not from the AOP, then it ain’t Chablis.
Now for what makes Chablis wines so special – hey have a leaner, more acidic character than most Chardonnay wines, less oaky and creamy and with more of a zesty, citrusy twang but without giving up too much clout.
They’re complex and important but they’re still fun. And that’s what matters, right?
The Domaine Bersan Chablis is available for instant delivery for just HK$ 195 on the BottlesXO app from Monday, 3 April.
