Origin France, Burgundy
District Chablis
Classification 1er Cru
Vineyard Côte de Léchet

(Tasted from tank - bottling in Spring 2017.) Lovely bright attack here. More tension more balance a more focused drive of tighter-wound fruit. The vintage's warmth and is still in evidence and there is good weight and the finish is less firm than a purist's dream - but this is 2015 and Dennis has made a dreamy Chablis - the most precise of his in the vintage L&S (Nov 2016)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Clean and easy and almost sweet. Exciting. Creamy. Much richer than the average Chablis! But a nice, if atypical, wine. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Oct 2018)

(aged in 50% wood). A whiff of unabsorbed sulfur doesn’t entirely mask the lemony aromas of pear and wet stone. The mouth feel of the stonier middle weight flavors is finer though to be sure there is still very good richness and mid-palate volume, all wrapped in a sappy, complex and lingering finish. Once again this should be approachable young if that’s your preference. Drinking range: 2020 - Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2018)

Racy and lively and halfway between Mâconnais and Chablis (but much richer than any Côte d'Or wine). Lively. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)

Domaine Denis Pommier

Founded when the Pommiers inherited 2 hectares of vines in 1990. Isabelle and Denis bottled their first wine in 1994 and now have 18 hectares of vineyards, which are run according to biodynamic principles (which have sadly cost them dearly in terms of lost crop in 2016 and 2017).

The Petit Chablis 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. The Troësmes (a small parcel within the larger premier cru 'Beauroy' which the Pommiers think deserves to be identified by its correct name) is relatively rounder, while the Côte de Léchet is the one for fans of the slatier, crystalline side of minerality. Keep either of the premiers crus four to six years.
