Domaine la Meulière Chablis 1er Cru 'Vaucoupin' 2021

94 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team

"Another wine that stands out as an over-performer in this year's portfolio chez Meuliere is the 2021 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin, a medium to full-bodied & seamless wine choke full of orange blossom, pear, green apple and iodine, mineral elements. Racy but enveloping, it's a classic Vaucoupin"

Domaine de la Meulière is a 24 hectare estate in the small village of Fleys, 4km from Chablis. The Laroche family have been producing Chablis since 1780. Today the estate is run by Nicolas and Vincent. Together, they represent the ninth generation of winegrowers, with their family’s winegrowing history dating back to 1779. The La Meulière estate covers 27.3 hectares, harvesting is done entirely manually, and they use a natural approach to vinification. The geology around the estate is characterized by Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soils. The farm’s 34 vineyards interlock like pieces of a puzzle, half of which have been inherited from ancestral family. They are spread over the communes of Béru, Chablis, Chichée, Fontenay and Fleys (all entirely on right bank of the Serein). The vines here have an average age of 32 years. The synergy of this terroir with the Chardonnay grape provides the wines with minerality, power, floral and fruity aromas.
