Gautheron Chablis VV 2019
The Domaine Gautheron hews mostly to the style of classic Chablis. Winemaker Cyril Gautheron’s main focus is on showing his terroir clearly — when he uses barrels for elevage, he does so with a light touch. The result is wines that show clean, pure, Chardonnay fruit mixed with a stony minerality.
The Vieilles Vinges cuvée comes form 60 to 65 year old vines in the same neighborhood as the premier cru Vaucoupin. Though Cyril uses some oak in the early part of this wine’s elevage, it comes across as just a whisper, with the pure, shimmering fruit occupying center stage. The wine’s solid core and excellent density support its fruit beautifully.
