CHABLIS MIXED CASE
Chablis from three of the best producers working today. The Oudin sisters are in the vanguard of the new generation. As is Fabian Dauvissaut, the new kid on the block. As for William Nahan, he is a tried and true professional. These winemakers represent Chablis at its best.
Includes 4 bottles of each:
Domaine William Nahan Chablis 1er Cru’ Vaillons’ 2015
Justifiably well-known, the left bank premier cru ‘Vaillons’ lies in the center of the great hillside to the southwest of Chablis. Kimmeridgian subsoil and stainless steel tanks give us a wine that is refined and bright, lively and intense, solid and concentrated.
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.
Jean Dauvissat Pere 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!
