Domaine Laroche Chablis Réserve de l'Obédience 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chablis|
The 2017 Chablis Les Blanchots La Réserve de L'Obédience Grand Cru offers a super-intriguing mix of floral notes and lovely mid-palate pliancy, all in an understated style that is quite distinctive. Lemon confit, tangerine oil, sage, mint and white flowers are all woven together nicely. Bright saline notes give the 2017 lovely freshness and verve on the finish.
Wafting from the glass with complex aromas of orange rind, pastry cream, fresh peach and vanilla pod, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchots La Réserve de l'Obédience is properly youthfully reserved at this early stage, revealing a full-bodied, concentrated and structured palate that is impressively layered and broad-shouldered, built around an imposing chassis of dry extract and concludes with a chalky finish. This will require appreciable bottle age, but it's very promising.
