Francine et Olivier Savary 2006 Chablis ($19.99)
Light, transparent straw color. Fresh cooking-apple aromas and a distinct hint of rising bread dough. Fresh-apple flavors, tart and dry, are nicely shaped by crisp, fresh-fruit acidity. On the simple side at this young point - after all, it's a basic Chablis - but characteristic and nicely balanced, with a hint of chalky Chablis minerality in the long finish; rational 12.5% alcohol enhances its status as a dinner wine with seafood, poultry or pork. US Importer: Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, Calif. (Sep 21, 2008)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's appley character made it a particularly fine match with pork, specifically a natural and pasture-raised local pork chop, pan-seared and oven-roasted.



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.
