2015 Domaine Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

First thing to acknowledge: this wine needs more time. Pale gold color. Flinty, lemony nose. Rich and yet austere at the same time on the palate. I know, that makes no sense, but there you have it. Lemons, melons, minerals, an attractive flinty quality. Becomes lusher on the mid-palate. With a bit of air, it is awash in minerals. Yellow melons become more pronounced. Beautiful balance, nuanced acidity. Finishes long and crisp. Lovely right now, but still needs 4 to 5 years to develop and will drink well for another 10 years beyond that. "A" and, yes, there's an upside.
