René & Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2007
Beautiful medium dark gold color. Powerful nose from bottle opening and only got prettier with more air. Rich fruit nose with citrus fruit, poached pear, spices and a gentle hint of oak. Typical salty and mineral Chablis aromas are also there, but in the background. Bright palate with good acidity and powerful salty, fruity, mineral flavors with again, just a touch of spices and oak. So long finish. Among the best white wine I ever had. Sublime (95)
Bought at a wine store in France by a friend since Dauvissat’s wines are not available around here. Merci Baptiste!
