2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent, William Fèvre

Vaulorent is technically part of Fourchaume, the largest premier cru in Chablis. It is also usually the ripest, but the site is highly heterogeneous, and Vaulorent is undoubtedly the best parcel within, and the only one on the same hill as the grand cru. It has very chalky soil and produces a wine of power and silky tension. The 2019 is so stylish, it seems weightless, yet its long finish shows such vibrant concentration. Outstanding.

TASTING NOTES

This could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its equally cool, elegant and airy aromas of white-fleshed fruit, floral, iodine and subtle passion fruit-scanted nose. The super-sleek, refined and energetic medium weight flavors possess both ample minerality and a caressing texture, all wrapped in a slightly more complex, very dry and impressively long finale. Lovely.
