    Other Reviews....
    A ripe and less obviously exotic nose combines notes of various white orchard fruit, especially pear, with those of rose petal, citrus zest, mineral reduction and algae. The beautifully textured yet markedly intense broad-shouldered flavors possess a supple and caressing mid-palate that contrasts with the powerful, muscular and serious bitter lemon, stone and saline finish. Note that at least some patience will be required. Drink 2024+.

    Aromas of lemon oil, mandarin, honeycomb, iodine and leesy reduction introduce the 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, a full-bodied, multidimensional wine with excellent energy, concentration and chewy extract. It's the deepest and most reserved of all the wines in the cellar, and it will demand a few years of bottle age. Drink 2021 - 2035.
