Domaine François Raveneau Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre
“This is the crème de la crème of Chablis. All the high-end restaurants sell it; it’s really an aspirational wine. I was lucky to work in so many Michelin three-star kitchens, so I developed a very expensive wine palate early on.”

2011 Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses
“Mr. Brocard is a good friend of my late grandfather. When I went to France for my wedding reception, my grandfather, dad and I went to visit him and he did the most amazing vertical tasting of Chablis for us. Of course, we started at 10 a.m.”

Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin
“When I started dating my wife, Krissy, I was a bit homesick for France. She didn’t know anything about France, but did some research and bought me a bottle of this wine. It made me so happy. I took her to the Domaine Laroche vineyard for a tasting after we got married.”
