Chablis Premier Cru Montmain Cuvee Vieille Vigne Denis Race

Tasted 18/04/2013, 13% ABV, cork closure, possible n/a UK, bought about £11 ex-cellars in Chablis, directly from the producer. This is the first bottle tasted.
The variable 2011 vintage in the Burgundy has blessed the whites more than the reds, it is argued.
Denis Race is a very well regarded producer and this old vines premier cru is a fine example of his craft.
Pale straw colour, nose a little closed. Well structured palate, still very young and not showing its hand: acidic and minerally for sure but the fruit is still hidden. Great potential. Needs longer. From 2014. 17/20
