2022 Chablis “Hommage”

Famille Savary
Discount Eligible $39.00
SOLD OUT

I admittedly felt a bit skeptical upon hearing of this brand-new Chablis from Domaine Savary. When you already produce stunning wines from two esteemed premiers crus, plus a show-stopping old-vine bottling, why add another? The Savarys assert that this cuvée “gives another style of Chablis, conveying a more saline, iodized minerality that recalls the Chablisien geology and its little oyster shells, Exogyra Virgula.” Indeed, its character stands apart from their other wines: it smells just like the ocean, with a sea-mist freshness to more than satisfy that itch in the back of your throat—the dry feeling that can only be satiated by something bracingly cold and crisp.

About The Region

Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Old cob-webbed wine bottles

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
