Domaine Oudin Chablis 2019
Nathalie and Isabelle are the daughters of Jean-Claude and Christiane Wudan, who have taken the wine-making reins of these 70-year-old Chardonnay vines in one of the most exemplary wine regions in the world: Chablis. Note the rarity of the designation of “Premier Cru,” which means that it is from highly regarded vineyards known for their positioning and unique soil typicity. Furthermore, note the name of said vineyard plot on the label “Vaugirault.” Of the 70 named vineyard plots in this zone, only 40 are, by law, allowed to be featured on the label. The wines tend to have a richer fruit profile and a distinct flinty minerality (think of a freshly lit match).
Juicy Mirabelle and white peach flavors take center stage in this fleshy but pure-fruited white. The fresh, fruity exuberance and delicate floral perfume make this elegant wine enticing young but a reverberating tang of steel grounds it firmly in Chablis.
