Louis Jadot Chablis 2015

Pale in color with a mild apple/pear nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice vibrant fruit, apple and pear to match the nose. On the light finish … ah there just isn’t much. The LCBO describe it as light and crisp. I’m sorry, for $32.95 I expect something more than light and crisp. This is at best a lightly oaked chard. Louis Jadot is long known as a negoticient (meaning they buy grapes from other growers) and the web site is little help as to where the source of these grapes are. The best you can glean from the winery’s web site is “This wine is fermented in vats and then aged in the Louis Jadot cellars between 9-12 months before bottling.” I would give this an 87+. If you have lots of money to burn … ya go out and grab this wine, otherwise … PASS.
