Beautiful bright yellow robe with golden-green reflections. Les Blanchots is remarkably elegant. The nose is dominated
by a bouquet of white flowers (Lillies, roses). The mouth is ample and generous with great harmony. The finale is very
mineral with discreet hints of sea air and smoke (flint, pencil graphite).
The mineral purity of this wine will beautifully accompany Japanese cuisine using raw fish (breem sushis or pollack makis
for example). Alternatively grilled or oven-stewed white meats are perfect, in a tender and unctuous register.
For cheese, small goat cheeses or cream cheese with fresh herbs are just perfect.
Serving and keeping:
Serve between 11 and 13°C. This Grand Cru can be drunk in its prime youth or can be lied down for a dozen or so years
to develop hints of honey and spring meadow mushrooms.
"This Chablis reached extreme ripeness, yet the fruit's structural integrity has seemed only to intensify. The wine's powerful architecture sets firm boundaries, and the flavors fill them completely, layered with bass notes of toasted hazelnut and grilled pineapple rising to higher tones of sweet cream, gooseberries and lime. It's fascinating how a chardonnay can take a shape, one that will likely expand and evolve with long bottle age."
Wine & Spirits
"Weighty, full-bodied, full of ripe yellow fruits. Here’s a wine that is going to be a powerhouse, packed with intense flavors, touched by wood and a crisp edge. The aftertaste leaves minerality along with the ripe fruit."
"A subtle trace of wood frames white flower, lychee nut, iodine and spice nuances that introduce very rich, sappy and palate staining flavors that are impeccably well balanced on the powerful and opulent finish. This is so rich that it could be almost heavy were it not for the very firm lemon and grapefruit-infused acidity. A very fine and classy effort."
"Good pale color. Discreet, reserved but thoroughly ripe aromas of lime, green apple, white flowers and mint, with a leesy nuance. Juicy, spicy and classically dry, with flavors of apple, pear and flowers. Much more backward than the Vaucoupins and still youthfully tight on the back."
