I would buy more Chablis myself but I'm not entirely clear on whether cellar time is a must, or just an option. My experience to-date is mainly with Ontario Chardonnay, and these have been compared to Chablis but the difference is that they are always accessible upon release. Age seems to create complexity, but isn't absolutely necessary.[/url]
