This is the last vintage that will be labelled simply 1er Cru Beauroy - as from 2014 onward the Pommiers have opted to be even more specific as to the exact location of their vines within the Beauroy vineyard. Troësmes is the top zone here with a very high proportion of Marne Blanc soil as opposed to the Marne Bleu which dominates the rest of the vineyards. They are hoping to highlight this difference with the new name on this... Tasting in the cellar the wine is really impressive. There is a great brightness and a lovely feel and texture already and it is still 5 months from bottling. Denis says this winter of ageing in the cellar will enhance the minerality in the wine, which is already there, but there is much easy, lemon fruit too at this stage.

Domaine Denis Pommier: Full Wine List and Profile
This estate has come a long way since the Pommiers inherited 2 hectares of vines in 1990. They bottled their first wine in 1994 and now produce fabulous wines from their 16 hectares of vineyards. Denis and Isabelle Pommier have built up quite a following amongst sommeliers 'in the know' in recent years, and certainly the Petit Chablis is a brilliant wine to serve by the glass. It is a model of brisk freshness - made entirely in stainless steel - while the Premier Crus benefit from a small amount of barrel-fermentation and élevage.
