It took me quite a few weeks and endless hours of smelling, swirling and tasting to decide which color would be most suitable for the next CUVÉE Magazine issue on Chablis.
The first shoes I thought of were including more green reflexes, a slightly crisper shade of yellow. However, tasting a delicious bandwidth of mostly 2014 and 2015 vintage wines, as well as a series of perfectly aged Chablis, I have noticed this unctuous, very soft and delicate yet discerned shade of a pastel yellow. And after some digits trials, holding my favorite wines against a bright yellow screen idea, I have finally found the perfect Chablis yellow.
I have been lucky to discuss it with a few producers and couldn’t be happier they all agreed with my choice.
Now that the issue has a distinct color, it is much more satisfying to write the articles to be decorated with it. Even though a few more editorial choices are still out in the open. But that’s the thrill of making a magazine.
So hang on in there while I give my best – in a few weeks from here it will be printed. Have you pre-ordered your magazine yet? In case you missed it just hop over to our shop so you’ll be among the first addresses we will send off in July!
