Pattes Loup AC Chablis 2010

This picture made me buy the 2009 version of this wine.  The fact it was so damn good had me chomping at the bit to try and find the 2010 version.

Has some of the familiar lemon creme pastry elements to it, flaked almonds, wheaty-mealy note with some honeyed parsnip.

The palate sees a briny, oyster shell note familiar to Chablis.  Weightier than I recall, fulsome, a hint of mineral - pebble.  Acid is good, not the rapier like thrust of many  Chablis.  Gone is the soaring secondary movement of the '09, instead replaced by greater depth, harmony -  well pitched .

My final memory is of honey and lemon, a perfect tincture as the wine slides down the back palate.  93 - Very Good
