Chablis 2014, La Vigne de la Reine, Château de Maligny. Chablis Premier Cru 2014, Homme Mort, Château de Maligny

Chablis 2014, La Vigne de la Reine, Château de Maligny, France white, $24.80, SAQ # 560763. Classic Maligny. Mix of riper than expected fruit — pear and white peach, and a sturdy, drum-like mineral beat. Even two days after opening, the rock is still there, rhythmically pulsing away. Always one of the better generic Chablis at the SAQ, and the 2014 is no exception. Residual sugar: 1.9g/L. Serve at 8-10C. Drink now. Food pairing idea: Apéritif, raw oysters, shrimp.

Chablis Premier Cru 2014, Homme Mort, Château de Maligny, France white, $35, SAQ # 872986. A bit closed, so at the start, it is all chalk and little fruit. Give it some air and time, and notes of lemon and apricot begin to show, alongside a salty chalk note on the finish. Every time I drink one, I can’t help but think what a wonderful and unique wine is Chablis. Residual sugar: 1.5 g/L. Serve at 10-12C. Drink now-2018. Food pairing idea: Apéritif, raw oysters, lobster.
