Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses Domaine 2014
The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses comes from two parcels, one steep and east facing and the other southwest-facing on the flatter part. This is quite reserved at the moment, austere and backward, sultry even with light granitic/flint scents that emerge with time. The palate is more generous, you might argue more "Preuses" with dried apricot and orange zest, good weight on the finish but without the pizzazz of the nascent Vaudésir at the moment.
