Wines and signs: BIVB matches appellations to Chinese Zodiac

The Monkey: Chablis grand cru

‘More fun than a barrel of monkeys’ is how the saying goes.

Witty, energetic and active – if not sometimes lacking a little discipline and foresight – people born in the Year of the Monkey possess an infectious joie de vivre which livens up any party.

The real star in the Chablis range, Chablis grand cru is a single appellation with seven different climats expressing its multiple personalities.

Just like the Monkey, wines can be firm and powerful in the case of Les Clos, or soft and rounded like Les Preuses.

Year of the Monkey: 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016
