Stainless Steel 1er Cru
Vaugiraut, Just Plowed (photo: Selection Massale)
After experimenting for a decade, Lilian has found that his relatively young vine 1er Cru vineyard in Vaugiraut or Vosgros does not benefit from barrel fermentation or further aging in wood. It is made the same way as his village-level wines, i.e. in cuve--stainless steel tanks through and through.
Brass Tacks: THE 2010 VAUGIRAUT is beautiful. An abundant concentration of fruit that is in keeping with this big and round vintage coats the mouth like the first coat of primer. We now have lift-off. A cold river of karst rapidly tapers through providing the basic human experience that we all so desire, happiness. Tertiary sensations begin: sweet lemon and a whisper of smoke. Nary a sign of reduction and more than just a culmination of rocks and limestone, the 2010 Vaugiraut from Lilian is a better way to drink Chablis. -DM
