Other Reviews....
A dollop of wood sets off a ripe mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit laced with nuances of iodine and seashore. There is fine mid-palate density to the intense and saline-suffused flavors that terminate in an agreeably clean and dry finish. This could use better depth but since it always seems to age extremely well, more should develop if giving a chance. Worth checking out. Drink 2025+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2019 Chablis Tête d'Or has a composed bouquet of yellow plum, crushed rock and light fumé scents that uncoil in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. The oak barrel underpins this Chablis but doesn't obscure the terroir expression, though I would still afford it 12–18 months in bottle. Drink 2022 - 2029.

Neal Martin - Vinous

A cuvée made from the best plots, then given a longer elevage with 15% in (mostly older) barrels. Excellent density of yellow fruit, the wood is well hidden, more sucrosity, more length, this just needs more time compared to the regular Chablis.
