Domaine Laffay Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon 2017
A relatively small vineyard quite elevated with an average vine age of 40 years and low yielding. This is a complete terroir expression of Chablis, nerve, vibrancy with racy mouth-watering acidity but yet with very good fruit weight and composure. 2017 provided another superb vintage from Chablis, low yields and a smaller production compared to other bigger vintages however we think it’s even better. More mineral, fuller body, in essence, a truer expression of Chablis. Cellar from 4 to 6 years.
Domaine Laffay Chablis 2017
Classical Chablis this one, dry, mineral, crisp and bursting with freshness, clarity of fruit and medium body but always in balance, not austere or over-done. Laffay is one of those producers that stays the course, his approach is very much hands off when it comes to winemaking he prefers the vineyard to do the talking and this is very much reflected in the wine. It will evolve over the next 4 years or so as it is a little young at present but it will be worth waiting for.
