A vintage that reveals the limestone and the singularity of the terroirs of Chablis. Reflections of a brilliant pale yellow. The nose opens on notes of chalk, white flowers and fresh apple. Fermentation takes place partially in 30-year-old oak bringing subtle and complex notes of fresh undergrowth and cedar. Minerality on the palate with a long and saline finish.

The 2018 Chablis Saint Martin is a soft, pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Apricot, hazelnut, tangerine peel, dried flowers, mint and lightly honeyed notes all grace this airy, lilting Chablis from Laroche.

Lean, focused and flinty, this white reveals lemon, apple and stone flavors. Fresh, delivering a clean finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.

There will be two bottlings of the 2018 Chablis St Martin, and I tasted the first, which was bottled in February 2019. It's quite reserved, revealing aromas of waxy lemon rind, apple and anise, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and supple palate. I'd expect the later bottling to display more tension and texture.
