District Chablis

Brighter than their regular Village Chablis. There is a nice, high-lined thread of zip - above a pretty, generous core of fruit. Yellow and ripe flesh. Some apple, some warm pineapple - a heady cocktail which is good though. Normally a proportion of this goes into barrel, but this year there was just not enough juice for this - so all did its élevage in tank in 2017. This is very pleasing Chablis, good and easy, but with just enough succulent freshness. L&S (Oct 2018)

(from 50+ year old vines, vinified and aged in 2017 the oak was reduced to 10% rather than its usual level of 25 to 30%). An admirably discreet application of wood sets off the ripe, fresh and appealingly layered nose of mineral reduction, pear and quinine. The rich, full-bodied and even more powerful larger-scaled flavors display evident mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a succulent yet serious finish that coats the mouth with sappy dry extract. This is a very fine age-worthy Chablis villages and worth checking. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2020)

(from 50+ year old vines, vinified and aged in 100% oak of 3, 4 and 5 years of age). A discreet but not invisible application of wood sets off the openly exotic yet agreeably fresh aromas that also possess enough Chablis typicity to indicate where this is from. On the palate the bigger, richer and opulent flavors are borderline sweet though the sweetness is tempered by citrus-tinged acidity. This is perfectly good if somewhat atypical. 2020+ Rating: 88 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Dec 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.
