  • (13.9% natural alcohol, from vines on the Chassagne side): Bright, pale yellow. Knockout pure nose offers discreet notes of stone fruits, clove and iodiney minerality. At once powerful and vibrant in the mouth, offering great volume, depth and lift to its palate-staining spice and mineral flavors. The iodiney quality carries through to the very long, precise finish. Wonderfully juicy and energetic considering that it's carrying a moderate four grams of acidity. This should evolve gracefully in bottle for a decade or more.

    Note: from purchased fruit on the Puligny side; sold under the Thierry Pillot label
    Producer note: Thierry Pillot noted that 2011 is a "very precocious vintage that was extremely hot and dry early on before conditions deteriorated during the summer. The second half of August though was again quite warm and we decided to attack the harvest early as we had the proper phenolic ripeness if only average potential alcohol levels. Moreover we had begun to see the acid levels fall so we reasoned that there was just nothing further to be gained by waiting. We began picking on the 27th of August and brought in very clean fruit that required almost no sorting. I went with a very soft pressing so as not to extract any bitterness. The harvest conditions were quite warm and thus the fermentations started almost immediately. In terms of the élevage I did no lees stirring at all and used much less new wood, in fact in some cases none at all. As to the wines, they don't quite have the same purity as 2010 but the quality is almost as good."
    Tasting note: This is also exotic though here it's notably more subtle with its notes of mandarin orange, yellow orchard fruit and spiced tea. There is imposing size and power to the broad-shouldered and sleekly muscular flavors that enjoy outstanding mid-palate concentration and plenty of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the firm acidity that shapes the beautifully well-detailed and explosive finish. This is a full-on effort in that it remains refreshing and very well balanced.

  • Tasting note: A very pretty nose reflects notes of petrol, lemon rind, acacia and lovely spice hints trimmed in discreet oak wisps. There is excellent freshness and intensity to the broad-shouldered, powerful and concentrated flavors that possess a sleek muscularity on the balanced finale where a firm core of citrus-tinged acidity maintains the balance. Plenty of patience will be required as this is still a bit youthfully awkward though the excellent upside development potential is undeniable.

  • Tasting note: Here the surprisingly expressive nose is even more complex with broad-ranging aromas of various floral and white fleshed fruit scents that also display top notes of spice, all of which is again framed in discreet oak hints. This is a big Bâtard where the broad-shouldered flavors brim with palate soaking dry extract that does a fine job of effectively buffering the very firm acid spine that keeps everything in balance on the opulently textured and hugely long finish. Moreover this is strikingly complex, indeed it rivals the Montrachet for being the most complex wine in the range.

    Producer note: I met this time with enologist and winemaker Jérôme Faure-Brac as well as Véronique Drouhin who collectively noted that the 2015 growing season "wasn't nearly as difficult as the prior seasons and particularly so with our parcels in the Côte de Beaune. You had to be really careful pruning the vines as the accumulated effects from three consecutive years of hail in the Côte de Beaune had made many of them quite fragile. We also had significantly different yields as they were normal in the Côte de Nuits but quite low in the Côte de Beaune. One of the really nice things about the vintage is how clean the fruit was and given that the harvest weather was so clement we could basically pick each parcel when we felt it was ready, a luxury that isn't always available. We were also super-vigilant about the pressing as we absolutely wanted to avoid the higher pHs that typically result from using the press juice. As such we vinified it separately and then, depending on the characteristics of the press wine, we incorporated it or, if we didn't like it, we sold it. We also did no lees stirring because it was clear from the beginning that the whites were going to be very rich. One of the interesting aspects of this vintage is how much the wines have changed over time as initially they seemed almost heavy and a bit flat at first but as the élevage progressed, they tightened up and actually became fresher and more focused. At that point we said that there was nothing further to be gained from keeping the wines in cask so we bottled the entire range between December 2016 and February 2017." I found the quality of the Drouhin 2015 whites to be generally better than what I found on balance elsewhere. (Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., www.dreyfusashby.com, NY, USA; Pol Roger Ltd., www.polroger.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: Here the nose is quite firmly reduced so be sure to decant it if you're yearning to try a bottle upon release. On the plus side there is a really lovely texture to the elegant and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess very fine complexity on the highly persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth.

  • Tasting note: This is also quite elegant with its equally spicy nose of honeysuckle, yellow and white orchard fruit and citrus elements. There is a lovely vibrancy to the concentrated and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess good power on the markedly dry and somewhat compact edgy finish. As with the Combettes my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the finish will flesh out and the dryness will dissipate with time.

  • Tasting note: The benefit of the older vines is apparent as this is notably more complex than either the Forêts or the Montmains with its broad-ranging nose of subtle wood, green fruit, citrus, tidal pool, wet stone and saline notes where the salt and mineral elements continue onto the detailed, intense and exceptionally pure flavors that ooze Chablis character on the palate staining and impeccably balanced finish.

There is good richness and verve to the nicely rich and solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess good detail and really lovely depth on the focused, long and delicious finish. As Chapelots often is, this is softer and not quite as impressive as the '08 Montée de Tonnerre (see herein) though the resemblance is striking (Chapelots is one of the climats of Montée de Tonnerre). For my taste this is just about ready though one more year of cellar time should help to add depth; that said, this could certainly be drunk now with pleasure.

    Note: from a huge parcel of 2.5 ha though this figure includes the surface area in Chapelot
    Producer note: Bernard Raveneau called the 2008 vintage an "unending series of surprises. We had snow at the end of March with the flowering occurring around June 20th. The summer was quite cool and August was wet instead of dry. It's a good thing that September was not too hot and dry with a steady north wind or we would have been overrun with rot problems. Then, of all things, we actually had a bit of frost in September though it was not enough to really hurt anything. We began picking on the 29th of September and the crop was really quite clean with fine sugars averaging between 12.5 and 13.2%, which means there was no chaptalization for any of our wines. 2008 is definitely marked by its lively acidity as there was plenty of malic and while the malos were long, they were not troubled. As to the wines, 2008 is clearly at least a very good vintage and they remind me a bit of the 1996s but with better concentration, which hopefully will mean that they age better too." Speaking of longer malos, Raveneau explained that the Vaillons was still completing its secondary fermentation and thus is not reviewed below. As I explained last year, fans of the Domaine are not seeing things because there really is a new wine in the range. 2007 was the first vintage for a villages level Chablis located near the 1er Montmains. Lastly, the Raveneau 2007s are brilliant wines and very much worth your attention. (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, www.kermitlynch.com, Berkeley, CA; John Armit Wines, www.armit.co.uk and Haynes, Hanson & Clark, www.hhandc.co.uk, both UK).
    Tasting note: This offers a step up in aromatic elegance with acacia blossom, quinine, citrus peel and sea shore aromas that are framed by a gentle touch of wood, which is also reflected by the intense, powerful and quite serious big-bodied flavors that ooze dry extract that confers a silky and sappy mouth feel to the seductive and long finish. Still, this will require at least 6 to 8 years to really be at its best and it should live for years after that.

  • Tasting note: Here too there is just a background hint of wood that does not intrude upon the wonderfully refined aromas that are airy, pure and lacy and exhibit largely the same components as the Montée de Tonnerre. The detailed and equally pure flavors are unusually forward with fine intensity and superb finishing length and minerality. I like the high level of extract and overall sense of balance.

  • Tasting note: A wafting and airy nose of honeysuckle, white fruit, including peach, pear and apple complements the dried floral notes and are in perfect keeping with the rich, full and palate staining medium weight flavors that are notably intense but perhaps a bit less elegant than usual. Still, this is impressive in its old vine intensity and sheer length. Interestingly, this is presently not as complex as the Chapelot is at the moment but there is even more material and I'm betting in time, this surpasses its stable mate. In passing, I mentioned to Raveneau how different the '06 and '07 versions were and he pointed out that in warm years, the east-facing exposition of Blanchots can have a tendency to create heavy wines [while simultaneously noting that the same exposition is a huge help in cool vintages] but that is certainly not the case here, indeed if anything, the finish is bone dry and the precision marvelous.

  • Here too there is enough wood to merit mentioning on the decidedly cool and reserved nose that offers up plenty of floral elements along with those of citrus, iodine and oyster shell. The lavishly rich, muscular and overtly powerful flavors possess the hallmark minerality that carries over to the dense, citrusy and very dry finish. This beauty should age effortlessly. Don't miss!

    The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is potentially the finest of Fèvre's 2017s, offering up notes of citrus oil, confit lemon, beeswax and sweet white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, glossy and rich, with a deep, firm core and chewy extract, balanced by juicy acids. It's a powerful, complete Les Clos that's built for the long haul.

    Producer note: Thierry Amiot told me that 2003 isn't a "bad millésime but it didn't seem very interesting at first. The élevage wasn't linear or regular - each wine had its own personality and we had to treat each one individually. We started the harvest on August 18th but we harvested over the course of an entire month as we tried to harvest each parcel at its optimum ripeness level. Yields were quite low at around 32 hl/ha in white, mainly because Chassagne was really hit hard by frost, especially in the lower lying vineyards. Sugars were in the 13.5% range but I think they were that "low" only because the vines shut down; otherwise, we might have seen sugars in the 15%+ range. The vines jump started again around the 19th of August because there was a big storm which hit St. Aubin and while no rain fell in Chassagne, all the water ran downhill from St. Aubin and flooded our vineyards. This helped enormously and essentially unblocked the vines. Because of the reduced yields, I used a bit more new oak than usual as well as more SO2 and I bottled with slightly higher levels of gas. As to acidification, we did acidify but it was bit by bit and only until I could taste it and then we stopped immediately. There was no point in trying to deny the impact of the vintage and all the acid additions were meant to do was ensure a clean and healthy fermentation environment. The wines will probably drink well early but it won't surprise me if they wind up aging reasonably well." Like many domaines did, Amiot bottled his whites with decidedly higher gas and SO2 levels. (Kermit Lynch, Berkeley, CA; Boston Wine Company, Boston, MA; Lea & Sandeman, H&H Bancroft, Rare & Fine Wine, House of Townend, all UK).
    Tasting note: Sweet, vanilla and spice-infused oak notes frame very fresh and higher-toned peach and white flower fruit aromas that give way to toasty, intense and long flavors that display much more of the classic minerality than any of the prior examples. This is a powerful wine that departs from its normal character but remains attractive in its fashion - just don't expect a typical Caillerets experience. I suspect this will age for up to a decade.

    234, The Wine Advocate

    The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot (Marquis de Laguiche) was affected by the frost, and hence 50% of the fruit was lost. The nose is pleasant with scents of white peach and citrus lemon, although it does not quite have the vigor of the Embasees. The palate is well balanced with a ripe, sorbet-fresh entry of orange and pear, quite energetic toward the finish that fans out in confident fashion. This gets better with acquaintance and deserves a couple of years once in bottle.

    Note: from Le Grand Clos and Vignes Blanches
    Producer note: Véronique Drouhin noted that the 2014 growing season "wasn't as difficult as that of 2013 but with the hail in the Côte de Beaune and the Suzukii flies in the Côte de Nuits it didn't lack for challenges. The season began propitiously with an almost summer-like spring that turned into an autumnal-like summer that was then followed by a summer-like fall. It was a rather curious succession of different kinds of weather that was punctuated by the late June hailstorm that was thankfully early enough that it had more impact on quantity than quality. We began picking on the 11th of September and the sorting requirements varied by parcel but very generally the fruit was pretty clean so there was less overall sorting than usual. We modified our use of whole cluster between none in the Côte de Beaune due to the hail to around 25% in the Côte de Nuits. I believe that our decision to attack the harvest a few days earlier paid dividends as the whites have better acidity than usual but not too much. Moreover while many observers seem fixated by how good the whites are, which in fairness they are excellent, but I believe that the quality of the reds is grossly underestimated. They have everything they need to also be very fine and while 2014 is not a genuinely great vintage for the reds, it's at least very good to excellent. A few years from now I think collectors are going to be very surprised by just how good they are." I noted in Issue 62 that I was extremely impressed by the quality of the Drouhin reds and I would make the same observation about their 2014 whites and this is true from the entry level wines to the very top of the range. Drouhin noted that the whites were bottled between November 2015 and January 2016. (Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., www.dreyfusashby.com, NY, NY; Pol Roger Ltd., www.polroger.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: A completely different aromatic profile is present here with its smoky array of earth, resin and various white orchard fruit scents. On the palate it's immediately clear that this is a big wine with impressive mid-palate concentration and overt power that continues onto the mouth coating and balanced finish that is very solidly structured. This won't win any awards for elegance but it absolutely avoids the heaviness that Morgeot can often display. Moderate patience required.

  • Tasting note: The reduction is strong enough to push the fruit to the background but there is very good freshness and vibrancy to the broad-shouldered and notably ripe middle weight plus flavors that retain a good sense of underlying tension that adds lift to the very rich and lingering finish. This is a big but balanced wine that is more refined than the typical example of Morgeot. Worth considering.

  • Tasting note: This is also unusually expressive while exhibiting very subtle hints of exotic orange pekoe tea on the beautifully fresh nose of dried fruits that include apricot, white peach and acacia blossom. There is an opulent and caressing mouth feel to the very rich and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before terminating in a delicious, mineral-driven and impressively long finish. This is rich to the point of succulence and while it will certainly age well this will be approachable much earlier than usual.

  • Producer note: Stéphane Arbelet and Philippe Prost, Bouchard's managing director and winemaker respectively, noted that 2008 "presented many challenges climactically speaking. Depending on the sector, there was heavy rain, hail, wide temperature swings and various kinds of rot. We began picking in the Côte de Beaune on the 24th of September with the pinot and because of the cool and dry conditions, we were able to harvest the chardonnay slowly and deliberately, in fact we did not finish until the 6th of October. The chardonnay was healthy and quite clean and while there was some sorting required, it was minimal. The yields in tonnage were lower than in 2007 but because of the dehydrating effects of the persistent north wind, the realized yield in juice was much lower. Ripeness levels were generally very good though they did vary by sector and particularly by altitude. In terms of the wines, they have everything they need to be very long lived, which is to say vibrant acidity, ample concentration and exceptional freshness." Both Arbelet and Prost were exceptionally high on the quality of their '08 whites and their enthusiasm was born out by the quality of what I saw here.

    Tasting note: This is also wonderfully elegant with high-toned, pure and airy aromas of white flower, light toast, spiced pear and a hint of green apple that gives way to supple yet detailed mineral-suffused middle weight flavors that are perhaps even more refined than those of the Perrières, all wrapped in a balanced, stylish and lingering finish. As good as this is, and it is very good, it's not necessarily leagues better than its junior partner, just different though it will most likely require a few more years to reach its apogee.
