Surprisingly bright yellow. Mint, honey, truffle and a balsamic note on the rather unusual nose, with a hint of citron confit the only clear sign of fruit. Fat, chewy and thick, revealing a hint of bitterness from thick grape skins. The lemon note carries through on the palate of this rather uncompromising, even tannic Chablis. This will get more truffley as it continues to unfold. "Not gone," says Isabelle, succinctly. I would not be surprised to find more flavor interest with further aging, but this wine will never become Chablis-like.
