    Other Reviews....
    Interestingly, this is aromatically quite similar to the Valmur save for the presence of an abundance of floral elements. The super-intense, indeed almost painful, broad-shouldered flavors possess evident minerality and excellent delineation that possess a bracing salinity on the hugely long finale. This too is clearly built for extended cellaring and is going to need at least 5 to 7 before it will be approachable. In a word, excellent.

    The 2019 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru yielded 35hl this year and is matured 50% in new and used barrels and the rest in tank. It has a well-defined bouquet with precise scents of yellow flowers, struck flint and smoke. I may actually prefer this to the Clos des Hospices cuvée. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, taut and focused and full of energy. The Clos des Hospices has more depth and intensity on the finish, so overall it has the upper hand, but this is a serious Les Clos that will give 20–25 years of drinking pleasure.

    Neal Martin - Vinous

    A healthy 45 hl/ha, made with 45% in barrel and 55% in tank, the parts as yet unassembled (though this sample is). Racy, lime and lemon colour with a very pure intense clean, but ripe nose, with a little spice. Very tasty! This has significantly more weight, some toast from the barrel, a little bit of flesh too, good weight as well, but seems to lack a touch of tension. White fruit typicity remerges at the back.
