Super closed at first, with air, as it warms, it slowly unfurls. Starts to give up citrus, green apple, wet sea shells, and straw. Initially in the mouth it was almost emaciated and bitter, but over time becomes a bit more friendly. It still remains lean and quite crisp, with zingy acids. Not great depth. Flavor-wise, it’s much more about stoniness than fruit. Will revisit tomorrow.

UPDATE: Night 2 it has continued to open and is softer and more open. More lemony fruit is present and the finish is longer and friendlier. Upping from 8.8 to 9.0. If you’re drinking this in the short term, consider a multi-hour decant.

I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy a large number of bottles of Raveneau and Dauvissat Chablis over the years, premium cru and grand. This Laroche bottling has elements of both. Tons of substance, big minerality and even a touch of the corn tortillas
