Dom Servin, Les Pargues 2020 Chablis

16.5

Full bottle 1,143 g. The Laithwaites' website says: 'Once a Premier Cru vineyard itself, Les Pargues sits between other Premiers Crus Montmains and Vaillons, the Chablis from which sets you back up to £30 a bottle. The difference is Les Pargues had to be abandoned during World War I, so was declassified. In the 1950s the Servin family began to restore the vineyard and now, with their meticulous care, the 50-year-old vines deliver wine of impressive concentration. Only local politics prevent Les Pargues from being re-instated to its rightful status.'
Ripe apricot nose. The fruit in this is so ripe, for a Chablis, that it's almost luscious! Golden apple, pomelo, apricot, yellow peach. Tastes as if there has been quite a bit of lees work, with a firm, fine toasted oatmeal creaminess, broad and wide-shouldered under all that lavish but brisk-busy-with-acidity orchard fruit. Long with satisfying bite in the finish. A very modern, enormously likeable Chablis with real character. GV (TC)
