Tasting notes

27/01/2011

(GOOD VALUE CHOICE) I've always had a soft spot for the wines of this estate ever since I met Adhémar Boudin when I was writing my first book on Chablis 30 years ago. He is now a spritely octogenarian, and it is his son Francis who makes the wine. This has quite a light elegant nose, with some leafy fruit on the palate, and not a trace of oak. Sufficient acidity and quite supple fruit, with some depth. Still quite closed; should develop in bottle. Drink 2013-2018. (18 points)
