Domaine Laroche Chablis Les Vaudevey 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaudevey has quite an intense nose that offers scents of mango, citrus fruit, shaved almond and just a hint of white chocolate. That descriptors makes it sound more exotic that it actually is; this is delineated and not overpoweringly "flashy". The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, plenty of citrus fruit, lemon rind and Granny Smith apples that segue into a more stony and reserved finish, which nevertheless lingers nicely in the mouth. This an excellent Les Vaudevey from Laroche.
Wine SpectatorA lean, tart version, offering apple, bitter green and chalky flavors, this ends with a citrus peel note and a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2020. 1,250 cases made.
