K&L Notes

La Chablisiènne is one of the largest grower cooperatives in France. Founded in 1923, the operation has steadily expanded over the past century to the point that nowadays they vinify anywhere between 25% and 33% of all the wine in Chablis. However, their standards of quality have always been remarkably strict for such a huge volume of production and their premier cru and grand cru wines will stand up to many of the most prominent domaine bottlings and often for a fraction of the price. This 2016 is a stunning example from this Premier Cru vineyard site. Vaucoupin is located on the south side of Chablis, with very steep southern-facing slopes abundant in the mineral-rich Kimmeridgian soils for which the best sites in Chablis are known. This lovely wine is still in its youthful bloom, drinking beautifully with bright tropical fruits, fresh acidity and vibrant minerality. It can also continue to age phenomenally well, and develop deep honeyed, dried stone fruit notes as it reaches maturity.
