Domaine Laroche Chablis Premier Cru Les Vaudevey 2019
This wine's appearance is clear and bright limpid yellow with lots of mineral hints over a layer of lemon peel. It tastes nervy, racy, and lively.
The appellation, usually a slow-ripening one, benefited from an extraordinary end-of-summer: Blue skies, sunny and dry conditions, light winds and cold nights...all the elements required for a complete and perfect ripening of Chardonnay grapes. The condition of the grapes — which were less abundant than in 2011 due to coulure and millerandage — was perfect, enabling the development of impeccable aromas. This vintage of cold maturation, which implies neither heat excess nor heaviness, has developed elegant, aromatic, well-balanced and generously mineral wines.
