"Already bottled. The fact that this is from less traditionally well-situated vineyards actually imbues it with a bit more freshness than the Fourchaumes in these vintages with hot summers. Racy and, to my palate, a little more typically Chablis. I love the brightness and fluidity of the green flavours here. Much, much better than supermarket Chablis. But this is probably not a very long-lasting wine so I'd like to start drinking it ASAP… GV *good value* 16.5/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
35 year old vines on clay-limestone marl of Kimmeridgean terroir at a south-southeast exposure. Wild yeast primary and malolactic fermentation (complete) followed by 10 months aging on fine lees in stainless steel vats with minimal action. Tasting Notes: Dry and lean with lip-smacking mineral refreshment. Warm citrus and white flower aromas lead to pear and orange zest flavors with exaggerated flinty notes. Textbook Chablis - harmonious, sunny and mineral driven.
