2016 CHABLIS, 1er Cru Fourchaume, L’Homme Mort, Domaine des Hâtes

Bin:  116

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Chablis is a cool, northern area. Despite commercial popularity the wines are not ‘easy’. Initially they seem light and innocuous, with searing, razor-sharp acidity. Give them air, and allow the palate a minute to adjust, for the subtle intensity and complexity to become evident.

Producer:

From their agent, Flint Wines:
“Young Pierrick Laroche set up on his own about five years ago but has quickly made a real name for himself. Initially he sold off a large proportion of what he was producing from his 25 hectares (good for cashflow) but now such is the demand for his wines he is being encouraged/forced to bottle much, much more under his own label, which is great news. His wines are aged in mainly stainless steel, although he does use some oak for textural purposes. He likes a long élevage as this adds nuance and complexity without the wines being forced or hurried. As a range they have a lovely mineral core running through them, which keeps them energetic and vivacious.”

Old Bridge rating:

From an excellent white Burgundy vintage, this is just now hitting its stride. Crisp but intense Chablis of real pedigree.
