The Chablis “Per Aspera” displays tropical scents, dried honey and touches of pineapple on the nose, which is not unattractive but needs a little more focus. The palate follows in a similar vein, showing a waxy texture and good depth, but it feels a little predictable and lacks tension on the finish.
Domaine Charly Nicolle is a family estate at the edge of the tiny village of Fleys in the Chablis wine district of northern Burgundy. The owner and winemaker is Charly Nicolle himself, a seventh-generation vigneron who learned the craft of viticulture and winemaking from his father, Robert. Members of the family have owned and worked these vineyards since 1780.
