One region that I have forgotten the last couple of years is Chablis. I don’t know why, really, when you get a good bottle nothing is better. So when we ordered a mountain trout from Hardanger, we got this weeks wine to go with.
When I started collecting wine, Chablis was one of my first and favourite wines to get. Opening a bottle and smelling the bouquet was like being at the beach or fishing from a cliff at home. And perfect with shrimp, crabs and the fish we get at home. And one of my first favourite producers was Laurent Tribut.
Tributs wines have been a staple of the great Chablis that we get here in Norway for the last few decades. His wines are crystal clear and pure. They have everything you want from a Chablis and are perfect with seafood. But also great to drink by them selves.

Oh my Word what a wine! Like a evening stroll on the beach in the nose, with the saltiness and minerality really coming through. Great acidity and then the lime and ocean in the mouth, makes this just perfect. Great with just about any seafood.
