2018 Domaine Guy Robin Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons"

SKU #1540127 91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Ripe lime and pear on the nose with wonderfully expressive citrus flavours on the palate - juicy, succulent, vibrant but also concentrated. Silky and broad on the palate, this is refined and intense and would pair well with mushroom risotto, goats cheese or fresh fish dishes. Made by fourth generation winemaker Marie-Ange Robin who tends the estate's 20ha of vines, of which 80% across five grand cru and four premier cru vineyards are old vines. (GH) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

In the early 2000s, Marie-Ange Robin left her job as a fine art dealer in Paris to take over the family winery from her father, Guy, thus becoming the fourth-generation vigneron of her family’s sizable stable of 1er cru and grand cru vine holdings. One of their largest parcels is the 1er cru Vaillons, where they own some of the region's oldest Chardonnay vines, the fruits of which you’ll get to taste in this bottle. The estate practices sustainable and organic farming, grapes are harvested by hand, and the juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels (10% new). Oak fermentation and aging is not widely practiced in Chablis, as only wines with such intense and complex flavor profiles can stand up to it. This is a serious and unctuous wine with notes of baked Golden Delicious apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Enjoy it with goat cheese, lobster risotto, charred octopus, or chicory walnut salad. Such a treat from our Burgundy buyer, Alex.
