Chablis, Vieilles Vignes Domaine de Vauroux
France – 2018
Tasting Note: Selected from the domain's oldest vines this Chablis is deep lemon yellow with a wonderfully developed nose of stewed apples and cream. The wine also has a creamy texture on the palate which is underscored by a typical minerally acidity, and a long clean finish.
Food Matching: The extra development and concentration of this wine make is an excellent partner to smoked fish dishes and also to creamy seafood dishes and even veal in creamy sauces.
Vineyard: All the grapes for this wine are handpicked from the Domaine oldest vines, some as old as 40.
Vinification: They are then carefully selected before being gently pressed. Domaine Vauroux uses some skin contact before fermentation to add more aromatic character. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks at approx. 18 degrees. Olivier Tricon the winemaker is not an advocate of wood ageing but allows the wine an extended stay in tank before bottling.
