Other vintages of this don’t have the most stellar reviews but I think this excels. Dear Chablis, please stay humble. It hit my nose with ever so much chalk. Then I took a sip and realized the chalk was just hiding all the lemon-honey-cough-drop-without-being-medicinal goodness in this bottle. It isn’t the most complex but rather just powerful and modest enough to keep me intrigued. Extra bonus it was not overly spendy.

Intense vintage. Very briny and mineral texture. Aromatics lean more on the golden apple and pear side with a hint of lime blossom.

Very pleasant, minerals and pears. Went very well with fresh sword fish steak.

Domaine Barat Vaillons Chablis Premier Cru 2018: Clean. Bright. Refreshing acidity. Nice apple & lemon flavors with an elegant touch of minerality. This was my French white selection from last week’s virtual wine tasting. Cheers🍷
