Etienne Boileau Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons Chardonnay 2014

$27.99

...has an attractive apricot blossom and slate-scented bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, admirable depth and with layers of finely tuned citrus fruit mixed with walnut and smoke on the finish. This is a fine addition to the canon of superb 2014s. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I never ever manage to get Chablis 1er when blinding so I’m cozying up with the Oxford companion, The Wine Bible, the Wine Atlas and the Guildsomm site to study tonight. Oh and also a opening a bottle. This wine has a lot to say! It starts with citrus, lemon rind and yellow apple on the nose then on the palate there’s all that plus the minerality. I can fairly taste white clay. And something almost honeysuckled to it. It’s very very tasty. I will keep tasting different producers until I can nail this blind. Goshdarnit to heckums.

First time I’ve had this producer and I’m very impressed. This is textbook Chablis. Great balance of dusty lime, salty minerals and saliva inducing acidity.
