Tasting Notes

From bottle, the 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is more immediately expressive than the Preuses, revealing aromas of honeyed lemons, preserved citrus and quince. On the palate, it's fuller-bodied, deep and ample, even rich, with a layered core, succulent acids and almost chewy levels of extract, concluding with a long finish. It's a very serious Les Clos that could well be the wine of the vintage.

Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of grapefruit zest, ginger and quinine; much spicier than the Preuses in the early going. Silky on entry, then fine-grained and firm in the middle, a bit more austere than the Preuses and not showing quite as much early personality. Strong element of crushed stone and saline minerality. This racy grand cru finishes with terrific pungent lemon zest and mineral flavors and outstanding length. A wine of great finesse and purity: here the strong mineral component stands in nicely for the low acidity. This and the Preuses are quite splendid in the context of the vintage.
