2000 J Dauvissat

Chablis-2000-J-DauvissatDrinking this wine drawn from the cellar tonight. Rather astonishing for its freshness  (15 years old, village wine!). Classic Chablis – aromatically and gustatorily true to its Kimmeridgian origins. My only quibble is that it shows just a touch too “warm” on the palate despite its declared 12% alcohol. Lovely density … As we used to say in the old days “this wine has legs”.  The savory reference point is Meyer lemon with a splash of bitterness.  NIR
