Domaine Louis Michel & Fils Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru 2016


Description   :

Aromas of lemon oil, mandarin, honeycomb, iodine and leesy reduction introduce the 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, a full-bodied, multidimensional wine with excellent energy, concentration and chewy extract. It's the deepest and most reserved of all the wines in the cellar, and it will demand a few years of bottle age. (WK)  (8/2018)  94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A ripe nose combines notes of various white orchard fruit, especially pear, with those of rose petal, citrus zest, mineral reduction and algae. The beautifully textured yet markedly intense broad-shouldered flavors possess a supple and caressing mid-palate that contrasts with the powerful, muscular and serious bitter lemon, stone and saline-inflected finish. At least some patience required.  (11/2017) 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
