Now let's look at the 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésier from Domaine l'Enclos. With its magnificent medium golden yellow hue and silver accents, it already makes the eyes sparkle. But it is its bouquet that seduces to full fascination, as this experience combines elegance and strength. One immediately sends such a burgundy merit into the carafe, where it reveals its true aromatic tones with sufficient contact with the air.
There are nuances of apple, pear, quince and orange, together with elegant notes of the use of wood - fine vanilla, bread crust and latte. Furthermore, the bouquet exudes the sensual scent of sea air, dried oyster shell and seaweed, which awakens impatience to taste the first sip. The anticipation of an umami experience on the palate rises.
The sensory experience is one of great pleasure as soon as the Chablis touches the tongue. Bright and juicy, the fruit spreads, supported by fine acidity, a perfect interplay that seamlessly transitions into fruit melt. This admirable Chablis excites with its salty nuance and fine tannins that not only reveal maturity potential, but deliver an explosive and enchanting taste on the palate. Ideal as an accompaniment to the classics of French cuisine, but also served alongside Asian dishes, it is a delight.
Get the full potential of this wine by decanting and serving in bulbous Burgundy glasses.
Now for the food recommendations: Mushroom tartare with sea salt, rocket and hazelnut oil; lobster with pistachios, lemongrass sauce, peas, broccoli and spicy mango; sea bass, oven-grilled with lemons and dill.
