2017 DOMAINE BARAT “VAILLONS” PREMIER CRU CHABLIS
While there’s never a bad time for a glass of White Burgundy, I begin to crave Chablis even more as the weather warms up. A classically styled Chablis is clean and linear with bright citrus fruits, minerals, refreshing acidity and little to no buttery or oaky characteristics. One of my favorites is Domaine Barat’s Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons. The Estate dates back to 1795, and has a reputation for producing some of the most compelling, absolutely brilliant Chablis, and fortunately for us, they do so at a wonderfully realistic price. The only problem is with the minuscule number of cases imported into the US, there’s simply never enough of this wonderful White Burgundy to satisfy demand.
Chablis suffered greatly from frost in 2017 which resulted in lower grape yields, however those that survived were of extraordinary quality. Domaine Barat’s 2017 Premier Cru Vaillons was carved from half-century old Chardonnay vines, grown in soils rich in clay and limestone and the wine is stunningly brilliant. I strongly recommend securing your case, before it’s too late.

2017 DOMAINE BARAT "VAILLONS" PREMIER CRU CHABLIS
Tasting Notes: "This flashy Chablis is linear and focused with penetrating flavors that cut a swath across your tongue. The palate has beautiful key lime tart, ripe peach and dried apricot flavors. It has beautiful complexity with a flinty minerality and hints of crushed oyster shells. The brilliant acidity carries the balanced flavors through a very long, concentrated finish."
