Eleni et Edouard Vocoret Chablis "Les Pargues" 2019


We love a good Chablis and this 2019 version from Eleni et Edouard Vocoret didn't disappoint - very pale lemon yellow and bright in colour, the wine was a little muted at first but lime peel, wet stones, sea spray, light white flowers, a touch of smoked vanilla cream and sugared barley fragrance became quite prominent notwithstanding the strong reductive nose (which will dissipate with sufficient air contact). Ripe citrus, ripe starfruit, mineral and flint were present on the palate - not quite as lean (as I was told) but precise, with a touch of bitter lemon finish. Pretty good we must say with understated ZING and focus. Someone highlighted that it may not age well but we were like "dude, are you serious? Why wait 20 years when you can have maximal enjoyment in its first 10 years until the 1er Crus and possibly some Grand Crus from the same vintage come of age ?" Duh.
