Other Reviews....
An appealingly layered nose mixes notes of green fruit, mineral reduction and various citrus elements with a hint of algae. The round, delicious and anise-inflected flavors are at once caressing and mouth coating thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract that buffers the moderately firm acidity shaping the lingering finish. This will need to develop better complexity, but the projected aging curve should permit it to improve. Drink 2027+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2020 Chablis Grenouilles Grand Cru has a well-defined bouquet of undergrowth, limestone and light floral scents, although at the moment it does not deliver the panache of the Valmur. The palate is very harmonious and concentrated, delivering fine depth and salinity, and quite rich toward the persistent finish. Very fine, though not top of the Droin class. Drink 2024 - 2048.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Fresh pale lemon yellow. The power is showing, but not yet the detail. This has the most oak in the blend, but I can scarcely see the wood. Rich pure and concentrated, with an impressive weight of fruit throughout, follows on nicely from Valmur. Generous gourmand sucrosity is present but the wine should retain its balance.
