The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin, which debuted in 2012 alongside the Mont de Milieu, has a noticeable marine influence on the nose with flint and shucked oyster shell aromas that are nicely defined. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that complements that lightly spiced dried fruit. There is a pleasing density here and this enhances the persistence on the finish. Afford this a couple of years in bottle, because this has more to give.
Antonio Galloni Vinous
(Servin purchased these 49-year-old vines along with the Mont de Milieu just a few years ago; his first vintage was 2012): Palish yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of menthol, mint, minerals, wild herbs and earth; smells more like a rive gauche than a rive droite wine, with its fruit in the deep background. Then dry and saline on the palate, dominating by earthy, stony minerality. Nicely concentrated if a bit youthfully austere, with its salty finish showing a positive bitterness.
Domaine Servin is one of the largest and oldest domain in Chablis, with its establishment since 1547, run by the current 7th generation of the family, Mr. Francois SERVIN - the owner & winemaker. This ownership covers 42 hectares of vineyards on kimmeridgian limestone-clay soils of tiny oyster shells with an average vine age of 40 years. 90% of the productions are exported to 28 countries well around the world.
