Chablis Vieiiles vignettes from Domaine Colbois has a pale yellow color with gray hues. The nose is first dominated by roasted and grilled tones from the oak barrel storage, but gives space for hints of white and exotic fruits. The palate is soft and round, very pleasant, thanks to the oak barrel storage. The final ends up in a very nice combination of roasted / grill and vanilla in symbiosis with the acidity and some fat mouthfeel. A lovely Chablis to pair with a pike-perch fillet with butter roasted chanterelles or as a very good alternative to tasty cheeses.
