This exemplary 17th century estate is run by François Servin, with the assistance of his Australian brother-in-law Marc Cameron. They make wines of "great elegance, purity and length" (Jefford). Chablis lies 100 km north of the rest of Burgundy. The chilly climate, and its limestone clay soil full of prehistoric oyster shells, are what make its best wines unique. The Grands Crus, such as Blanchot, have great richness as well as steely freshness. As Hugh Johnson notes, Grand Cru Chablis remains even now half the price of other comparable great white Burgundies, such as Corton Charlemagne. "Parity", he says "would be closer to justice". Stash away this dazzling wine for another year or two, and then enjoy with fine seafood or poultry dishes.
