This guy is top 5 in Chablis. Maybe the best Chablis to drink young.

Nose is extremely mineral. Lemon zest. Good leap.

Palate is exquisite. Elixir like. Terrific texture. Dense but not heavy handed. Rich but in a Chablis way. Not oaked or vanilla like. A hint of green apple skin. Crazy hedonistic on the palate.

Finish is stunning. Almost honey without the sweetness if that makes sense. Long. Juicy. Perfect.

I’m giving this a 9.5 and not going higher because it’s a premier cru and it would look silly. Also maybe it lacks elite complexity. But it would be hard to find a more Delicious bottle of Chablis at any price.

Bought from fass selections.
