Dom Alain Gautheron Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2015 Dom Alain Gautheron Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2015

Here’s a wine that shows the challenge of tasting very young white Burgundy.  Because the wine certainly is reduced and showing it's sulfur when you first open it (although Ed Addiss, Gautheron's importer, says it's already much less than six months ago).  Be patient.  If you want to drink this now, decant it for an hour. Better, open it, pour off a half glass, and then put it in the fridge for 24 hours (which I did).  Or best, stash some away and let a few years of cellar time work its magic.

As the sulfur blows off/integrates, you’ll discover a gem of a wine from a half-acre plot of 55 year-old vines growing in the outstanding Grand Cru of Valmur, right next to Les Clos in site and quality.  The captivating aromas include white and yellow fruits, crushed limestone, and hints of nutmeg and a bit of toasted nut.  On the palate there is good richness to balance the intense, vigorous, structure of bracing acidity and salty crushed rock.  A core of lemon pulp, crisp green apple, and walnut flavors slowly emerge along with a bare hint of fresh chervil.  The finish is long, pure, stony, salty and supremely mouthwatering.  This will really sing from 2020 and will still be going strong in 2035 – all at a price lower than you’d pay for most average village-level Puligny-Montrachet.
