Old French Walnut Nine Wine Bottle Cabinet with “Chablis” Inscription
His interesting wooden wine or champagne bottle holder was crafted in France, circa 1920. The useful antique cabinet, made with old walnut and pine timber, has nine inside slots for wine or champagne bottles and has a hinged top for convenience. The piece is also decorated with the Burgundy wine region “Chablis” printed on the front, which give the vintage piece an air of authenticity. This fun accessory is in excellent condition, has a rich patina, and would make a nice addition to your wet bar or wine cellar!
The Chablis region is the northernmost wine district of the Burgundy region in France. The cool climate of this region produces wines with more acidity and flavors less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates. These wines often have a “flinty” note, sometimes described as “goût de pierre à fusil” (“tasting of gunflint”), and sometimes as “steely”. The Chablis Appellation d’origine contrôlée is required to use Chardonnay grapes solely.
