Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 91/100
This is an easy Premier Cru Chablis to enjoy. Produced from Chardonnay wine grapes from 40 plus-year-old vines. Delicate aromas on the nose of lime, lemon and fresh pear, dry, medium-bodied with crunchy apple, mineral, lemon and lime zest flavours on the palate finishing zesty with a flinty minerality. Enjoy now and for the next five years with fresh steamed shellfish dishes.
Chablis food pairings: oysters, grilled white fish, chicken, pasta with pesto sauce, avocado salad, mussels with a lemon-herb sauce.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
An absolute stunenr Chablis! This premier cru climat is like a panacea for those friends of yours that say they dislike Chardonnay.
It nails the raciness and cool climate character that we typically think of with Chablis.
It has a beautiful light lemon yellow now, but I have had older examples of this wine and they are striking and golden.
This Beauroy has the classic heavy citrus and perceptive minerality on the nose, but also an allurong cracked wheat and honey thing going on. Do not overchill it (a few degrees above 10C is great). The complexities of this wine really emerge after half an hour in a decanter too.
The flavours are concentrated and zesty. Lime, yellow kiwi, yellow apple, and a touch of honey.
This is a bargain Chablis with a lot to offer.
For a pairing, pan seared duck breast woupd be amazing. Homemade broths would be nice with it too. This is a good summer and spring fare kind of wine.
|From Chablis in the Burgundy wine region, Alain Geoffroy Beauroy 2017 is a Premier Cru Chardonnay with flinty, chalky, fresh lime and lemon zest aromas on the nose. Dry, mouth-watering with a racy mineral streak weaves through fresh pear, apple and lime zest flavours finishing long on the palate. This family-run estate was established in 1850, and the Chardonnay grapes to produce this vintage were sourced from vines of 30 to 45 years of age. Pair with grilled seafood. - Community Wine Reviews|
