The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux Vieilles Vignes has turned out very well, offering up aromas of green apple, pear and peach mingled with hints of smoke, dried white flowers and paraffin wax. Medium to full-bodied, textural and layered, it's one of the deeper, more concentrated premiers crus in the cellar this year. As usual, it numbers among the highlights of the Louis Michel portfolio.

The 2018 Chablis Butteaux Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru has a clean, precise bouquet with delicate touches of pressed yellow flower petals interlaced with crushed stone, chalk and honeysuckle. The palate is well balanced with a lovely texture, a fine bead of acidity and a mineral-driven finish that is very poised and full of energy. This comes recommended. A superb Butteaux.
