Sebastien Christophe Chablis 2020


A few months back, I offered the Petit Chablis from a new producer to the NY market, Sebastien Christophe, and it was a huge value hit.  


Just the other day, I tasted the full lineup of the just-arrived 2020s.  It's a great vintage for Chablis, and especially for Christophe, whose oh-so precise and almost impossibly restrained style is tailor-made for this kind of vintage. 


I'll get right down to business and say that, despite how great the quality was across the board, I went deep on the Chablis Vieilles Vignes 2020 because, pound-for-pound, it was a helluva lotta wine.  It offered so much precision, intensity and minerality in the most fragrant, elegant and restrained package that $33 can buy. 


You just keep waiting for the more stylized elements to come around the corner, but they never do.  It's classy all the way to the finish. 


So, yeah, while the VV is the main focus here, I've also got the 1ers and Grands Crus to offer, as well...


...and with those 1ers and Grands Crus, the same stunning elegance, restraint and pound-for-pound value in the context of the chiseled 2020 vintage becomes a running theme. 


These wines are a purist's Chablis, champions of the 'less is more' ideal, and I don't think it will be long before I'm lamenting the loss of availability on them. 


For now, though, we don't have to lament...


...just enjoy.
