Savary Chablis Review
If you’re unfamiliar, Chablis is Chardonnay, but it is not like a California Chardonnay — it’s typically minerally, unoaked, and pairs well with almost anything.

Savary Chablis: What I think
If you’re unfamiliar, Chablis is Chardonnay, but it is not like a California Chardonnay — it’s typically minerally, unoaked, and pairs well with almost anything. Randolph said “Every sommelier has a nice Chablis up their sleeve. Now your members can, too.”
The Savary was no exception with scents of apple, chalk, and a fresh energy that delivered subtle pear notes.
I found this Chablis delightful with our favorite vegan dinner — grilled zucchini, hummus, spinach, red onion, and tomato on a wheat pita-like flatbread, but I sure would like to have tried it with Californios’ Tres Frijoles (Californios is the Michelin-starred restaurant which collaborated on this wine club shipment).
Notice: I hold no formal wine credentials. I am a wine geek who has consumed 1000+ of bottles from 100+ different wine clubs and 1000s more bottles that didn’t come from those wine clubs. I do not accept payment for wine reviews, and I do not accept payments to influence my opinions. I happily accept free wine (and I buy wine).
Why read my wine reviews: Wine taste is subjective. What I like may not be what you like. I try to leave room for you to form your own opinions, so I don’t provide a score or a rating. I do point out wines that are an incredible value or truly not worth the money. I note flaws, wines that don’t have typicity (because this matters if you are buying wine without having tasted it yourself), when wines are out of balance, and when wines lack appropriate body.
I don’t like wasting money (or anything for that matter). I’m careful about where I spend my money and my mindset as a reviewer is to be careful about where you spend yours. I don’t believe a high price tag equals quality and I know for sure there are wines of very good quality that are also a great value.
