Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir, 2012, Domaine des Malandes
Note: from a .90 ha parcel planted in 1967 and 1987 and matured in 1 to 5 year old oak
Moderate wood influence still allows the white flower, spice, oyster shell and citrus aromas to be appreciated. There is fine size, weight and punch to the very rich, intense and sappy medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of verve before terminating in a mouth coating finish that really fans out.
There is also a touch of backend wood but it should fully integrate with a few years of bottle age.
