Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir, 2013, Domaine des Malandes
Note: from a .90 ha parcel planted in 1967 and 1987 and matured in 1 to 5 year old oak
A spicy and admirably pure nose of mildly exotic fruit scents also displays hints of tidal pool, seaweed and shellfish that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice.
There is excellent volume to the concentrated, opulent and delicious broad-shouldered flavors where a bead of minerality serves to add a sense of lift to the palate coating and wonderfully long finish.
Again I wouldn't describe this as classic but it is really quite good all the same.
