Wine & Spirits – 94 points
Juicy apple and lime freshness meets lees-driven tension, giving this wine a bold first impression. The umami leesiness needs time to meld into the fruit, but the wine has stature and staying power, with all the elements to age into a beautiful grand cru Chablis.
Decanter – 94 points
This exceptional grand cru probably derives its longevity from the abundant clay, as well as limestone, in the soil. It’s south-facing and well drained, giving ripeness and power, and that power is already evident on the nose, with its lifted but rich apple and apricot aromas with a touch of smoke. There’s real heft on the attack, while the palate is compact, powerful and dense. It exhibits tension and force, with almost chewy extract as well as a lot of spice. It’s still very youthful and will go the distance. Very long, with a dry finish.
