Le Domaine d'Henri, 2018 Chablis, Allées du Vignoble
Vineyards: Average vine age 30+ years old. Located in the villages of Chablis, Fyé, Maligny & Beine
Produced from estate grown and purchased fruit, these Chablis parcels are mostly found mid-slope throughout the Chablis appellation. Although not as deep and profound as the bottlings from 100% estate fruit, we found this wine to be utterly delicious, presenting a textbook version of this appellation that is hard to beat.
The wine expresses flint, herbal notes and citrus in the nose, classic traits of Chablis. Bright crisp acidity provides tension and backbone to the ripe flavors of melon, pear and almonds. Wonderfully versatile with food, this wine is as serious or playful as you would like.
