|Travel to France Vicariously Through Cheese
There is probably no wine that goes with EVERY cheese,
but if you intend to work your way through France via cheese and,
by the way, that is not a bad idea! let's go with a wine
that can pair nicely with most French cheeses. Chablis.

with a hint of apple and citrus. STOP: Teaching Moment - What's the difference
in Chablis and Petit Chablis? The key factor behind the Chablis hierarchy
is the soil in which the vines sit. While the more respected wines come from sites with Kimmeridgian soils,Petit Chablis is produced from vineyards planted
in Portlandian soils. The difference between the two soil types is rather subtle.
Know this: Petit Chablis tends to present higher acidity and citrus taste.
A fleshy and appealing Petit Chablis which is already drinking well.
There is good density of fruit here with apple fruit acidity to counterbalance
the ripeness of stone fruit. As expected from Domaine Louis Michel, this is a Chablis which has very good balance and enough density to age well for several years.
