2004 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru Grande Cuvée

This is the last bottle of wine in my stock that came from Costco. Not that this is of any significance but I thought I'd mention it. I purchased it last summer for $16.99 and see that there were still lots of bottles in the bin over there as of last weekend.

Is it that unpopular or did Costco buy a huge quantity? There's not a lot listed on Cellar Tracker, either. So what was it like?

Pale gold with a slight greenish tinge - it looked like a Chablis! My perception of the nose was mainly gravel and granite. Lemony, citric and with a steely/stony aspect on the palate. It had a light, delicate mouthfeel; not your buttery California chardonnay, that's for sure! Perhaps because of the delicate style, that's why so many bottles remain at Costco? Anyway, two thumbs up from me.

Here's the matching YouTube video. Please click here if you don't see the video below.
