2015 1er Cru Côte de Léchet Domaine Denis Pommier
|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)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(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)
Rating: 17 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Feb 2017)
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
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.
