Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note: Chablis sits between the Champagne region of the north and Côte d'Or and the larger Burgundy region to the south. The Chardonnays here are normally produced with little or no oak. Not this one. This is Grand Cru quality grapes aged for 18 months in oak on the lees and the results are fantastic. Floral and fruity nose, pear, honey, and mineral flavor and mouthfeel. This one's just going to get better with a couple more years in your cellar.

    Critic Score: 96

    Stunning depth and ripeness with slightly exotic character (flowers, herbs and fruit), plus some melted butter. Full-bodied, but very elegant, the intense minerality driving this along. Intense, salty finish. Drink or hold.

    Critic Score: 96

    While weighty and a bit impenetrable in youth, this powerful Chablis balances rich pear and tangerine flavors against a backdrop of stone and steel. Vinified in one- to two-year-old oak barrels and matured up to 18 months on its lees, it's a broad-shouldered sip accented by caramelized honey and white pepper. Hold until 2025, and it should gain delicacy and nuance through 2035.
