Wine Expert Note:

Domaine Laroche's Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots ‘La Réserve de L’Obédience’ unveils itself in the glass with a brilliant pale gold hue. The bouquet is a delightful blend of ripe green apple, lemon zest, wet stone, and subtle hints of white blossoms. Upon tasting, the wine displays a beautiful equilibrium between richness and minerality. Flavors of citrus, pear, and a touch of almond are underlined by a precise acidity, giving way to an expansive, lingering finish marked by mineral undertones. This Chablis is not just a wine; it's an experience, showcasing the impeccable harmony of fruit, terroir, and craftsmanship. Ideal pairings include oysters, grilled white fish, or a classic goat cheese salad. This is a wine that truly encapsulates the essence and prestige of Chablis. Read more

Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
