Domaine du Chardonnay Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2015

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceThis is a fairly new partnership, formed in 1987 when Etienne Boileau, Christian Simon and William Nahan had a vision to join their vineyards and expertise together to create Domaine du Chardonnay. They farm 38 hectares vines across Petit Chablis, Chablis, and Chablis 1er Cru. This 1er Cru Vaillons, situated south sloping on the left bank, is light and tight with green pear, green melon, and light quince. As it warms, subtle, well timed tropical notes emerge. Unlike some fruitier Vaillons, this subdued example draws more wet chalk, broken stones, along the bone dry, chiseled palate. This is a sleek, lean take on the cru.Tasted: 12 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 49.99 private wine stores Producer: Domaine du ChardonnayDistributors: Red Dog
