Tasting Notes: Peach, Apple, Flint, Citrus
The Maison & Domaine of Simonnet-Febvre were founded in 1840 by Jean Febvre. Today the Febvres own holdings in some of the greatest terroirs in Chablis. In 2003, Simonnet-Febvre was acquired by Maison Louis Latour. Since its purchase, the Latours have completely renovated the winemaking facilities and vineyard practices.
This wine is an excellent example of the characteristics of a Chablis wine: fresh, crisp, minerally, and medium bodied. This wine is one of the most highly-rated left-bank Chablis. The vines average 35 years of age and the wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel including 12 months on the lees. Rich and beautifully balanced with a multitude of flavors including green apple, lemon, brioche, peach, mineral, slate, and notes of thyme, crushed gravel, and golden pear. Pair this wine alongside seafood, grilled fish and white meats.
