Bernard Defaix Chablis Burgundy, France

Pale in color with a mild nose with some apricot and the like coming through. On the mid pallet the wine is light with some apricots coming through. The wine kind of reminds me more of a crisp Riesling. The finish is on the lighter side of medium. This is an odd taste for a Chablis. I would give it an 87-88. Not thrilling. Not available at the LCBO. I sadly did not get the year of the wine.

From the Winery`s web site:
Chardonnay 100%
Our vines on the appellation Chablis spread over 12 hectares, situated at the heart of the Chablisian vineyard. This wine is aged in stainless steel tanks so as to respect the typicity of the appellation. Our Chablis are characterised by their freshness, power and tenacity.
Their bouquet displays a dominance of mineral notes, which are often associated with delicate touches of citrus fruit (lemon and grapefruit).
This wine can be enjoyed within 2 years, an excellent match for seafood or fish.
