Today's Wine Tasting Note

Drouhin Chablis Joseph Drouhin 1996 Chablis Premier Cru ($21.99)
France's 3-0 victory over Brazil to claim the World Cup today prompted us 'Footix' soccer mascotto open a particularly fine French wine to salute the winners. This is a clear, pale greenish-gold wine with a very ripe scent of cooking apples overlain with hints of honey and wildflowers. Full, almost sweet apple flavors are mouth-filling and fresh, with tart acidity to hold it in balance through a long finish. U.S. importer: Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., NYC. (July 12, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with grilled lemon-garlic chicken and baba ganoush.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
