Chablis + Oysters
A classic go to pairing for oysters is not just Muscadet. Chablis can be equally as good. The Chardonnays of Chablis are different then their Burgundian counterparts further south. Soil, climate, and the style of winemaking all play an important role. The Kimmeridgian soils in the better parts of Chablis actually have decomposed fossilized sea shells in them.
Domaine Sébastien Dampt crafts this Premier Cru Chablis from a vineyard planted in 1959. Les Beugnons is a sub-climat of Vaillons. It is fermented and aged in concrete eggs. This wine is fresh, citrusy and chalky. Bone dry on the finish. An excellent oyster wine.
