2016 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins
Vaucopin is part of the commune of Chichée to the east of Chablis and has a southern exposure with steep slopes. This provides ripeness and intensity which amplifies the underlying mineral laden character of the wine. This 2016 is lovely; concentrated, lively, precise and very harmonious and long.
`(like the Montmains, this was done mostly in cuve): Tangy, fruit-driven aromas of lemon drop and orange zest complicated by a hint of spicy oak. Supple, easygoing wine with an attractive touch of sweetness but no weightiness to its soft citrus flavors. Clean and delicious already, this wine is likely to offer early pleasure.` 89-92 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
