William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Premier Cru Vaulorent Domaine
Very pale lemon-green. An essence of Kimmeridgian Chablis on the nose, offering pungent scents of lime zest, powdered stone and white pepper with a strong impression of mineral energy. Boasts terrific intensity and clarity to its brisk flavors of lime, white peach, mint and minerals. Densely packed and firmly structured but not quite hard. This is extremely backward but the marne soil gives it a modicum of silkiness. This broad, full, rather powerful premier cru finishes saline and classically dry, with outstanding slowly mounting length and finesse.
