(from 50+ year old vines, vinified and aged in 100% oak of 3, 4 and 5 years of age). A softly wooded and clearly ripe nose features notes of green fruit that possesses background nuances of mineral reduction, iodine and seashell. There is excellent mid-palate concentration to the opulent, round and sappy medium-bodied flavors that deliver fine length on the relatively dry finish in the context of what is typical for the 2015 vintage. Worth a look. Drinking range: 2019 - Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2018)

The 2015 Chablis Croix Aux Moines comes from 50-year-old vines and is aged 70% in stainless steel and 30% used barrel for 12 months, then kept on the fine lees for another three months. It has a brisk, stony bouquet that is very poised and focused, quite sophisticated for a mere village cru. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity, quite vibrant and sappy, with a touch of reduction that works well on the finish. This has plenty of personality, and I am intrigued to see how it will age in bottle. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 89 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Sep 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.
