Chablis Vieilles Vignes Massale 2020
Source : Allen Meadows - 2020
(Aged in 70% stainless and the rest in wood). Pungent aromas of wood and reduction render the nose impossible to read accurately. More interesting are the concentrated flavors as the old vines are very much in evidence thanks to the abundant dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the impressively persistent and notably more complex finale. One to strongly consider for a villages level wine.

 

Chablis Vieilles Vignes Massale 2020
Source : Neal Martin - Oct 2021
Raised in 30% used oak barrels, the 2020 Chablis Vieilles Vignes "Massale" comes from 60-year-old vines within Les Pargues. It has a crisp nose, more backward than the Les Pargues, offering touches of lime mixed with vervain tea and flint. The palate is fresh and vibrant and shows good depth. Quite spicy, especially toward the finish, which harnesses the richness of the vintage. Very promising.
