- Cellar Drink Now - 3 years (2020-2023)
- ABV 12.5%
- Closure: Cork
Brilliant pale straw colour with distinct reflections of green around the edges and a watery hue. Pronounced pear, subtle dried honey and citrus aromas are trailed by notes of wet stone. Rich and round in the mouth there’s plenty of intensity to the pear and dried honey flavours with citrus, subtle cashew and stony characters filling out the back palate. Dry balanced finish with lively acidity and a long textually appealing aftertaste that’s quite moreish.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Very taut with plenty of peaches and light green mangoes. Very fresh and fine. The palate has a lithe and juicy edge. White peaches and lime citrus with a very smooth, fleshy and nicely balanced palate. There’s a lot of fruitiness and acid power here. Excellent AC Chablis.
The 2017 Chablis, due to be bottled in September, has a tightly wound, slightly chalky bouquet with hints of musk developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a satisfying sense of volume and precision, touches of orange zest, dried apricot and ginger with an elegant and refined finish. There is a nascent sense of panache here that you might not expect for a mere Village Cru. The key will be to capture that in bottle.
This had just been racked and sulfur dominated the nose. Otherwise there is a sleeker and finer mouth feel to the round, delicious and again nicely vibrant flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering finale. This should drink well immediately yet repay a few years of cellaring too.
