2010 Albert Bichot, Domaine Long Depaquit Chablis, Burgundy

( £13, 12.5%, Soho Wine Supply )

The wines from Albert Bichot are on a steep upward curve at the moment, nowhere more so than in Chablis. This is a classic, unoaked style with notes of oyster shell, steely acidity and enough creaminess on the tongue to bind the whole thing together. Fresh, zesty and utterly transparent. You can almost see the terroir in your glass.
