- Dom Des Malandes Chablis 2014 Product #31008 (In Stock)
Fresh Chardonnay crushed and fermented in steel with 6 months on the lees for salinity and breadth. Pretty aromas of white fruit, white flowers and sea shells. Crystal clear palate of crisp apple and stone fruit with citrusy undertones. Fresh and saline through the long, clear, salty finish. Day 2 - Sea shell and iodine on the nose then very pure and salty on the palate with green melon and citrus and apple underneath. Very long finish of juicy fruit and wet stones.
"Top Value A slightly riper but equally fresh array of various white and yellow orchard fruit aromas also exhibits plenty of classic Chablis elements. As is usually the case this is bigger and richer with fine intensity and excellent salinity on the stony and saliva-inducing finale. This could be from nowhere other than Chablis and would also make for a higher-end, and ageworthy, house white. Recommended."Allen Meadows 89 points
"The 2014 Chablis Villages, which is aged in stainless steel over six months, has a slightly earthy, almost mulch-like bouquet that feels awkward at the moment. The palate is fresh and citrus-driven on the entry with moderate weight of fruit and then segues into a tightly-wound finish that feels there is plenty of energy coiled up. Give this Chablis another 12 months in bottle as this seems to be well crafted. (7/15 note)"Wine Advocate 89 points
