Description

Decanter – 97 points
Benchmark Grand Cru Chablis, with haunting aromas of kelp and seashore. Very fine and poised on the palate, with delicate oak, finely toasty notes, and a long, dry, chalky and mineral finish.

James Suckling – 96 points
This has an array of fruits from citrus to white and yellow peaches. More tropical mangoes and papaya with wet stony mineral nuances follow afterwards. The palate’s very expansive and expressive, but it is pinned together with a core of bright fine acidity and a very concentrated rich serving of fruit flesh. Delicious now, but it will age well beyond 2025.

Wine Enthusiast – 95 points
This is a rich wine, even from the normally austere Les Clos vineyard. Minerality is here, but it is surrounded by sumptuous ripe white fruits that have intense youthful acidity. It is a great wine that needs to age further, so drink from 2021.
