I recently went to a great Chablis event in Scott Conant's culinary suite in Soho . . . and what can I say? How can anything be bad about any of the above?

Two great Chablis producers, Christian Moreau and Jean Francois Bordet of Domaine Seguinot Bordet came all the way from France to share with the New York food and wine scene a bit of their history, their values and their world of Chablis.

First, what is Chablis? Chablis is a white burgundy wine made from the Chardonnay grape in Chablis, France. Chablis is the northernmost wine region within Burgundy. There are four appellations within Chablis: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, and Chablis Grand Cru.I love Chablis, as I love all white burgundy, because it's one of the elite wines of the world that truly embody the magic in wine -- and if you drink the right producer's wines and have an amazing food pairing as we did with Scott Conant's beyond expectations display, you find yourself stopped in time and absorbed into the world of Chablis. What does that mean?
