Louis Michel and Fils Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

Louis Michel and Fils Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2016

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceA mix of climats in the Valvan Valley (some of which are 50-years-old) is the source of this Premier Cru Vaillons. The soil is a mix of stones and clay, giving the wine a stony, mineral bent with a touch of richness. The site is a heat trap, promoting full ripeness and spicy notes. The ferment is natural and long before ageing in stainless steel for 12 to 16 months. The nose is a classy mix of pears and hazelnuts with a linear citrus, mineral undercurrent. Just enough power to suggest its Premier Cru rank. Solid and capable of ageing through 2025. Serve with freshly prepared shellfish for best results.Tasted: 02 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 54.99 private wine stores Producer: Louis Michel and FilsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
