William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir Domaine 2015
Pale, bright yellow. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at pineapple, menthol and wet stone. Dense and smooth on the palate but extremely unforthcoming today, displaying dry, slightly reduced flavors of lemon drop and crushed stone. This sharply chiseled, mineral-driven wine boasts terrific structure for a graceful evolution in the bottle. Owing to its austerity, salinity and inner-mouth tension, it's more about Vaudésir than it is about the 2015 vintage.
