This Grand Cru is from grapes which the family has been buying since the 2008 vintage. And what a beauty the 9th vintage of this wine is! This has been ageing in French oak barrels, which were previously used for an average of five vintages: this meticulous use of old barrels contributes structure and complexity of flavour to the wine, without masking chablisienne verve and freshness. Bright, green-golden, aromas are ripe and expressive, combining notes of spiced lemon and peach. Full and intense, there is superb depth of fruitiness on the palate, underpinned by steely minerality. This is a compelling, rich-yet-classic Chablis style with a satisfying, long finale (for drinking 2018–2024+).
