The Difficulties With Chablis

This is a useful little item in CityAM on the topic of Chablis, and echoes much of what I have discoevered the hard way over the years.

It is a difficult wine to buy in a good version, and yet at a reasonable price. It is never going to be cheap, but doesn't have to be the normal £12 or more for a decent 'weekend' Chablis (as it is described).  I have dabbled with the co-called Petit Chablis and found it seriously wanting – and it certainly isn't sold at a bargain price (typically around £7, occasionally a little less).

I have seen the Grand Cru types, but cannot justify the high cost as matters currently stand. Perhaps one day...
