Albert Bichot Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys Domaine Long Depaquit 2018
- White Wine
A cool, pure, airy and more elegant nose combines notes of white flower, pear, green fruit and just enough classic Chablis typicity to be interesting. The round and fleshy middle weight flavors possess a chalky texture before terminating in a saline and refreshing finale that is delicate but punchy. - AM
