Francois de Nicolay Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2018
$229.00 inc. GST
Tasting Note: The famous vineyard of Les Clos is one of only seven ‘climats’ in the Chablis Grand Cru appellation, considered by many to be the best of the area. Nicolay’s expression from this site shows immense power, with heady phenolics of honey, stonefruit and citrus. Despite the intensity of these flavours, the dense palate reflects the complex Kimmeridgian limestone soil composition of fossilised oyster shells with a flinty, mineral edge. Beautiful acidity matched with richness. Match with freshwater fish, crayfish or lobster. This Chablis Grand Cru will reveal more of its complexity after 5 years in the cellar and age spectacularly for 15 years or more. Average vine age is 30 years, and the wine is matured 20 months in oak.
