If my visit to Domaine Savary last June is any indication, this Chablis has special powers. Let me explain: my tasting took place under nearly apocalyptic conditions in the Chablisien, as days of torrential downpours had created unprecedented flooding in the region, displacing entire families while creating serious erosion and rot concerns for local vignerons. This deluge came not long after a devastating spring frost followed by two violent hailstorms all but decimated large portions of the Chablis appellation. Needless to say, the feeling was rather morose at the domaine—that is, until Olivier Savary began pouring samples of his 2015s. The mood instantly brightened as a flash of Kimmeridgian terroir bolted across my palate, leaving behind the impression of tart pear and crunched seashells. The moral of the story is, when doomsday looms, be sure to have some Savary Chablis at the ready—it may come in handy sooner than you think. –Anthony Lynch
