Description

The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru les Butteaux escaped any damage by hail and is, in Isabelles opinion, the most classical and Chablis-like, whereas other wines express the growing season. It has a pretty, perfumed, perhaps exotic bouquet compared to the other cuves this year and is very expressive, with apricot blossom emerging with time. The palate is very well balanced with a precise line of acidity and, again, is very expressive with a shimmering, quite captivating finish that exudes both mineralit and fruit intensity. This has turned into an outstanding Butteaux that punches above my prediction from barrel.
