Domaine Barat, Chablis Côte de Léchet 1er Cru 2012

Barat Lechet 2012

T. Elenteny Imports, New York, NY.

Rye-straw.  Heady aromatics and inner-mouth perfume, an almost dried floral intensity: smells like Baozhong tea.  Lithe energetically, racy and bright.  Not as concentrated as her peers: the acidity shows more, feels a bit undernourished.  Threads the needle at the end: dry, articulate, Chablisienne.  Pretty for now; give her two years to find her center.  From 2017.
