Chablis, grand cru

$120.00 $105.00 per Bottle


2 Bottles




"Bright, pale yellow. Musky aromas of peach, ginger, nutmeg and crushed rock. Fine-grained, precise and vibrant, with considerable muscle to the very concentrated flavors of stone fruits, crushed rock and saline iodiney minerality. Finishes with a youthfully tannic impression and superb slowly building length. Ultimately a bit less dense than the Blanchots Reserve de l'Obedience but has terrific tension and inner-mouth lift to support a slow evolution in bottle." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Well-defined aromas and flavors of apple, peach, honey and spice stay harmonious and long in this precise white. This has flesh to balance the structure, with a fine, mouthwatering aftertaste. Drink now through 2022. 1,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos comes from two parcels toward the bottom of the slope on clay and limestone soils, and this comes only from the old vines. It is raised in 40% oak. It has a very composed, Burgundian bouquet that is reminiscent of a fine Puligny-Montrachet, opening up with subtle almond scents. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity, good depth but very tight toward the finish that needs a little bit more complexity. Drink now-2020."
