2016 1er Cru Troësmes Domaine Denis Pommier

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Chablis
Classification 1er Cru
Vineyard Troësmes

(Bottling in March) Finally a bit of oyster shell and some mineral undertones. A lovely and fresh citrus start, then minerality flows through it joyously. Fruit is ripe - but less fat here and the sensation is good, clean and fine - but the fruit element is nicely ripe and round. Good, more classic Chablis. L&S (Oct 2017)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

(this used to be labeled as Beauroy). Here there is a pungent petrol character to the dried yellow-fleshed fruit aromas that are once again overtly exotic. The exceptionally rich flavors possess a luscious and equally caressing mouth feel while exhibiting slightly better energy on the clean and moderately dry finale. Note that this should drink well young but also reward a few years of cellaring. 2021+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, 2018)

The 2016 Chablis Troesmes 1er Cru has a pretty and well defined bouquet with scents of flint, white flowers and a touch of orange pith. The palate is well defined with a fine bead of acidity, discrete tropical notes such as white peach and passion fruit that do not obstruct the mineral core to flourish on the finish. Denis Pommier has made an excellent Chablis from one of its lesser-known Premier Crus. Drinking range: 2018 - 2027 Rating: 91 Neal Martin, 2018)

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.

Christmas White Burgundy

Christmas is a time for richer, rounder more satisfying white wines, a task for which Chardonnay (and Burgundy in particular) was invented. These are proper food wines to accompany genial suppers or a sumptuous Christmas dinner.
