Faiveley Chablis 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good bright yellow. Pure, vibrant aromas of citrus peel, anise and spearmint, along with a powerful element of crushed rock minerality. Densely packed and sharp as a paper cut, with outstanding purity to its lemon, lime and saline mineral flavors. Finishes with outstanding length and definition. A splendid Clos with acidity over 4.5 grams per liter, according to Bernard Hervet...95" IWC 07/12 "This is almost Riesling-like with its petrol character that combines with notes of mineral reduction, oyster shell, citrus zest and a distinct saline element. There is excellent intensity with all of the drive that one expects in a classic vintage with firm acid spine shaping the medium-bodied flavors. I very much like the underlying sense of tension on the notably dry, clean and racy finish...91-93" BH 07/12
