1996 Regnard “Grand Regnard” Chablis

($21): This is a blend of AC and Premier Cru wines. Light citrus nose. Penetrating fruit on the palate with a dose of minerals. The fruit expands on the finish with plenty of acid to keep it crisp. Intense stuff and a great value. The ball shaped bottle is a drawback for storage though.
