Chablis 1er Cru Cote de Lechet Reserve, Domaine Bernard Defaix

"The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Cote de Lechet Reserve sees more wood aging compared to the regular cuvée, 50% instead of 20% for 18 months. It comes from 60-year-old vines that were cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare. It has a superb bouquet with detailed flint and wet limestone scents that display laser-like focus. The palate is well balanced with a fresh pineapple and Granny Smith apple-tinged opening, very well-judged acidity and a poised, saline finish that lingers in the mouth. This is excellent: taut and precise, the oak discretely used. It is the best Reserve since the superb 2015." 92pts Neal Martin Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
