Simonnet-Febvre, Chablis (Burgundy, France) 2014

($20, Louis Latour USA): The 2014 vintage was superb in Chablis and the rest of Burgundy for white wines.  Prices have nowhere to go but up because of the short crop in 2016, so I advise friends to buy as many 2014 white Burgundies as they can afford.  Here’s a good place to start.  Simonnet-Febvre’s 2014 village Chablis is a classic expression of the appellation — flinty, mineraly and invigorating.  Hard to beat it at the price.
