Wine Description:
Christophe et Fils Chablis is a white wine from the Chablis subregion, which is the northernmost part of the famous French wine region of Burgundy. The wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in vinyards across the region. Chablis is notable for its cool, continental climate, which result in a wine with predominantly citric fruit expreesion and mouthwatering acidity. The local soils have a high level of limestone that is rich in sea fossils, which together result in the wine exhibiting a mineral complexity on the finish. The wine is made in modern style with temperature controlled fermentation in neutral vessels to preserve the purity of its fruit expression. This wine's acidity makes it a food friendly style for lighter dishes involving white meats and seafood. Read more

Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
