Description: From barrel, the 2007 Chablis Blanchots - from a high-elevation eastern exposure, and some of the estate's oldest vines - displays aromas of high-toned citrus oil, toasted nuts, ocean breezes, and quarry dust. Startlingly gripping and pungent, this might not represent the last word in finesse, but it makes an emphatic, zesty, intensely saline and stony statement that I am very timid to contradict! This really tugs at the salivary glands, and finishes with an energetic crescendo of citrus and diverse expressions of things mineral. When questions are raised about the ability of great Chablis - and Burgundy in general - to transcend what one can imagine issuing from grapes, here is a prime exhibit to offer. I suspect this will be engrossing to follow for 8-10 years, if not longer.
