Chablis Les Vieilles Vignes by Pascal Bouchard 2014
Bouchard’s old-vine cuvee casts textbook Chablis aromas of high toned chalky minerals, freshly grated lemon zest and sweet butter. Lithe and sprightly on the palate, the Chablis’ brilliant acidity and smoky, flinty mineral spine lift its core of buttery citrus fruit. The wine’s old-vine quality comes to the fore on its long, flinty, soil-inflected finish. Showing impressive grip, persistent minerality, resinous old-vine fruit and a most comfortable price point, this a superb choice for pairing with shell fish, light fish dishes, vegetable souffles, or to serve as an aperitif.
