Vineyard Troësmes

This used to be labelled as Beauroy, but Troësmes is a more specific spot within Beauroy, known locally to to be the best plot. 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 discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine 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

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.
