Domaine Jean Dauvissat et Fils Chablis 2015
Chalky Chablis minerality make you immediately think that this village Chablis comes from vines on the left bank of the Serein. Many of the Dauvissat holdings are there, near Milly, the hamlet at the foot of the Cote de Lechet. Here, deep berry fruit and lemon drop (orange, really) acidity produce a big, concentrated wine which is wide open on the palate, with a long rich finish driven on by that minerality. There’s a new kid on the block!
Domaine Oudin Chablis 2015
Classic sweet river rock minerality and floral freshness, this is a meticulous perfectionists’ Chablis ‘tout-court’ (as the locals call the ‘village’ appellation). This wine is at its peak now and will remain there for another 3-4 years. A lovely introduction to the Domaine Oudin style.
Domaine William Nahan Chablis 1er Cru 'Mont de Milieu' 2015
Chablis 1er Cru 'Mont de Milieu' is a 'right bank' south-facing vineyard, also on Kimmeridgian clay. This vineyard, like the Grand Cru vines, tends to get a bit more sun in the year, and hence can be riper and richer at harvest. For this reason, some of the grapes (usually 20%) are fermented in oak ( barrels are used for 4 years). The rest is fermented as are the other wines of the domain, in stainless tanks. Restrained floral note, ripe pear and lime citrus acidity make a rich, concentrated wine with great grip. Classic 'right bank' mineral typicity.
