Jean-Philippe Archambaud is the Winemaker for Maison Simonnet-Febvre of Chablis, the most northerly sub-appellation of Burgundy…. only 20 kilometres south of the Champagne appellation. Both areas attribute their unique terroir to a large percentage of limestone in the soil… particularly the Chablis wine-grape growing sub-appellations and in La Champagne where Chardonnay rules. Both areas share a long history of producing wines made from the Chardonnay grape, although the wines from Chablis are exclusively made from Chardonnay. Both areas are known for sparkling wines…. La Champagne almost exclusively for classic method, classic varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier); Burgundy, less so, but consider the fact that Maison Simmonet Febvre, originally founded in 1840, was based on sparkling wines made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that we now refer to as Cr233;mants de Bourgogne. http://www.simonnet-febvre.com/fr/; Chablis and Champagne share in common
Chablis is the perfect crustacean wine
Champagne that's been open for months!
