2006 Domaine Billaud-Simon Vaudesir Grand Cru Chablis
Almost deceptively light at first in its aromas and flavors. Very elegant wine, benefits from being opened for a while to round out the flavors. Moderate alcohol (13.5%). Later, it remains ethereal: a suggestion of smoke in the aroma, then a hint of a memory of tropical fruit wafts by your palate.
