La Chablisienne 1999 "Le Chablis" Premier Cru ($19.99)
Very pale golden-straw color, with a rich scent of ripe apples and hints of wool and spice. Full and round flavor, white fruit borne by the steely acidity that typifies Chablis. Very fine wine, will likely gain complexity with a few years of age in the bottle. US Importer: Monsieur Henri Wine Co., New Orleans (Aug 23, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's body, fruit and acid made it a natural partner with crab cakes.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
