Frederic Lambert Chateau Chalon Vin Jaune 2013

Frederic Lambert Chateau Chalon Vin Jaune 2013

Regular price $156.00

2013 // 620ml // ABV 13.9%

From two new plots in the middle of the bowl of the Chateau Chalon designation on the south west facing slope near the town of Menétru-le-Vignoble. Limited by strict rules. The grapes are harvested from the Lias marl, in a remarkable site. Ageing takes place six years and three months after the harvest. The wine is then sold in "clavelins" 62 cl.

Quite giving for this vintage release and able to be drunk now but will age for decades. Oxidative but fresh style of Vin Jaune. On the nose are white flowers, pureed apples, dried fruit and that pungent aldehyde smell mixed with spices and walnuts. Nice volume in the mouth gaining that glycerol effect from long barrel ageing and depth of flavour. The length goes on and on in these wines with that citrus acidity cut and drive. - GM Wine Imports
