1996 Domaine Laroche Chablis-Les Blanchots Grand Cru "Réserve de l'Obedience"

SKU #1262822 98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This clever wine extracts maximum mileage from heavily toasted, violet-scented, fancy new oak, yet remains ethereal in its balance, supple in texture and enormously ripe, with luscious, almost late-harvest flavors. Full-bodied and sweet-tasting, this delicious young Chardonnay is a ringing effort even by the high level of the vintage. Decant and serve at room temperature now, or cellar. Inner quote mark (5/1998)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Laroche's luxury cuvee, the Chablis Blanchots Reserve De L'Obediencerie (200 cases) is crafted from a selection of the finest barrels of Chablis Blanchots. Interestingly, it has none of the strong oak scents and flavors found in the firm's regular Chablis Blanchots even though the same percentage of new oak (20%) went into its assemblage. This fabulous wine displays a floral, mineral, and pear-scented nose as well as a tangy, highly-delineated and focused personality. Concentrated, silky-textured, and full-bodied, it has beautiful purity and elegance to its steel and flint-like flavors that seem to go on forever in its interminable finish.
