"Eight to ten months on lees in tank. The order of wines seems slightly strange here as we are back to a more direct unoaked wine after Marronniers’ Les Malantes. And here there is impressive intensity on the palate. Not especially fruity – just a light note of citrus and orange pith – but it is direct and quite powerful, and long. 16.5/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Kimmeridgian (limestone-rich) soils that run through Chablis give the wines their characteristic minerality, which can also be described as gunflint, chalk and, in the wines of Vocoret & Fils, the taste of a wet stone. The grapes were grown on chalky hillsides of Kimmeridgian limestone mixed with Portlandian clay. This wine captures the typical Chablis character with steely minerality, focused citrus expression and firm acidity. Serve as an aperitif or with oysters, seafood, snails, charcuterie, goat cheese, Gruyere cheese.
