Description

Winemaker Notes

The color is pale gold yellow, with greenish hints. Refined nose, with aromas of lily (“fleur de lys”), honey or preserved lemon. Astounding depth and velvety sensation (“gras”) on the palate, with some delicate marine nuances. Intense and long aftertaste. After 5 or 6 years, even more complex and subtle aromas develop in the wine. A wine of incomparable finesse.

Critical Acclaim

V93 Vinous
The 2018 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru, which comes from 1.3ha of 37-year-old vine and sees 12 months in used barrels, has an attractive bouquet of white chocolate, almond and crushed stone, discreet white flower notes emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with lime and lemon peel, less honeyed in texture compared to the Vaudésir but with a more saline finish. Could it benefit from more tension? Maybe, but it is in keeping with the style of the vintage and is certainly well crafted.
