Chablis 1er Cru, Vau de Vey, Domaine des Malandes, 2020
Grape: 100% Chardonnay with a touch of oak
Full flavoured and floral Premier Cru Chablis, full-bodied with good minerality and lovely fruit concentration.
Winemaking: 70% of the cuvée fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature (18°) and 30% in barrels of 1 to 5 years old. After racking, the 2 cuvées are blended in tank.
Critics' Tasting Notes:
"This spirited expression of Chablis is marked by bright peels of tangerine and white blossom perfume. Pulsating with grapefruit and white-melon flavors yet anchored by a core of chalky, mineral complexities, this penetrating Chardonnay is welcoming young but will likely improve through 2030 and hold further."
94/100 points, Anna Lee C. Iijima, WINE ENTHUSIAST, March 2022
Also, Bourgogne Aujourd'hui rated the 2020 vintage 16/20 points and Burghound (Allen Meadows) 90-92 points
Perfect with white meats, white fish and smoked salmon.
