Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot 2008
Source : Stephen Tanzer - 04/06/2009
90/100. Green-tinged yellow. Captivating nose offers high-pitched notes of orange zest, lime, powdered stone, spearmint and lavender. At once dense and penetrating, with lovely lift to its pungent lemon and lime flavors. A very rich, fruity Blanchots with a long, fine, penetrating aftertaste. These old vines were vinified and aged entirely in tank in 2008; now it's only the Bougros and Clos that are aged entirely in barriques, none of which are new.
