Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2015 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2015

In a challenging year like 2015, older vines can make all the difference - as these 35-50 year-old vines on the richer, deeper, soils of the Vaillons hill did here.  The aromas here are very pure and deep with yellow fruits (peach, apricot) and lots of just struck flint minerality.  It's very rich and round on the palate - the 12.9% alcohol is on the high side here - with deep fruit shading towards the tropical before fresh squeezed lemon and lime citrus elevate the flavors with a juicy pop.  The finish is nicely dry, focused, and minerally fresh with enough mouthwatering action to pull you back for another sip.  You can certainly enjoy this right now and will get more flinty, salty, Chablis minerality over the next 3-4 years.

"Light-medium yellow. Reticent but pure aromas of white peach, apple, pear, citrus fruits and earth are lifted by a mineral quality and a touch of orange blossom. Lovely sweet peach and mandarin orange flavors display nice concentration. Winemaker Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel thinks this should be more expressive today, but this is the only premier cru bottled with Diam corks. Gicqueau-Michel told me he's moving back to natural cork, as he finds that the wines sealed with Diams are muted for too long. Lovely fruit here." Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 90 points
