Domaine de la Meulière, Chablis 2018
Fresh and elegant, great minerality, light sweetness, juicy attack, excellent.
Winemaker and vineyard: This traditional family of independent wine-growers since 1780 has been producing great Chablis wines since the end of the XVIIIth. After Henri, Ulysse and Roger, Claude the great-grand-son founded the Domaine de la Meulière. The arrival of Nicolas and Vincent, his sons, has opened a new way of working with new winemaking techniques, but always with the know-how of four generations. The Domaine applies a moderated viticultural policy. We use some natural control mechanisms to reduce the yields. The organic fertilization made according to the analysis of petiols, the balance and the control of the nutritional value of the vine according to the analysis of the soils, the withdrawal of persistent weedkillers, the return of the ploughing etc. ensure the protection of the environment, the respect of our soils, and your health. Today the manual wine harvest (grapes picked by hand), the wine-making and the maturing of our wines with the traditional methods used at the end of the XVIIIth century combined with new equipment and new disciplines allow you to discover the character and the prestige of our wines of « terroirs ».
Tasting: This 2018 vintage has first chalk and flint nose that opens with fresh fruit. The attack is frank, the mid-palate floral, thefinish fruity and persistent, iodine.
Service: To be served with starters, andouillette, seafruits or grapevine snail.

A delicate beguiling nose of white flowers, lemon and pineapple. The palate has modest levels of botrytis but good definition, restrained and understated in style. Tinned pineapple and peach on the finish. Good nervosity. Great potential.

The 2017 Guiraud opens with subtle notions of crushed rocks, wild fungi and fragrant earth leading to a profound core of orange marmalade, crystalized lemon peel, dried pineapple and paraffin wax. The rich, opulent, wonderfully exotic palate delivers soft acidity and loads of spicy sparks, finishing with great length and depth. robertparker.com
This famous white, which is both dry and fruity, surprises by its subtle white fruit aromas and seductive hints of honey and acacia giving it an elegant finish.
"Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Bastor-Lamontagne opens with provocative lemon marmalade, musk perfume and orange blossoms scents with hints of fresh ginger and spice cake. The palate offers mouth-coating citrus and spice flavors with a silken texture and balanced freshness, finishing savory." robertparker.com
