Tasting Notes

**Note: from 4 separate parcels totaling 4.11 ha, 3 of which are all at the top of the slope**
An exceptionally fresh and intensely floral nose also offers up notes of lime, lemon, stone and iodine that are trimmed in a discreet touch of wood. There is massive richness to the concentrated and big-bodied flavors that are breathtakingly powerful and intense, all wrapped in a palate drenching and extraordinarily long finish. As impressive as all of these characteristics are, it's the sheer depth of underlying material that is almost hard to believe. Like the Preuses and the Valmur, this is a 'wow' wine that should develop for at least a decade though because of all of the dry extract, it will be approachable much sooner. In a word, brilliant.

Bright, pale green. Subtle, delicate aromas of white peach, mint, crushed stone and chlorophyll. Less complex today than the Preuses but this is still an infant. All about white peach lifted by white pepper. Fine-grained, silky and utterly vibrant wine, delivering outstanding density and fullness without weight. Great slowly mounting finish promises much more to come.

The 2010 Chablis Les Clos is all about understatement and balance. White floral notes meld into white stone fruit in this utterly gracious Chablis. Clos can at times be fleeting and elusive, and there is certainly some of that in the 2010. Still, it is impossible to miss the wine's textural finesse and sheer overall balance. I will not be surprised if the 2010 continues to get better in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.
