2018 Hauterivien Domaine Denis Pommier
Even this 'opener' from the Pommiers is organic and quite brilliant too. Nice crisp edge here. This is clean and bright on the nose and that freshness follows to the palate. All soft lemon and cox apple a very convincing Chablis line. Was expecting to be bigger and more broad - but it is good and pacy and just how you want it. Nice matter in the middle - but well balanced. Perfect and not so Petit! L&S (Nov 2019)
*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.
The Pommiers’ organic chablis are a joy, and even this steely, leafy petit chablis hits the heights.Jane MacQuitty, The Times(Jul 2020)
Beautiful nose with white fruits, ripe and gourmand with a richness due to the terroir, both rich and unctuous.
25 years old Chardonnay vines grown on 2.8 hectares on the Hauterivien (Villy) where the very clayey soil makes wines that are light and fresh with a good minerality.
Organic practices in the vineyard, working the soil, debudding.
Alcoholic fermentation on native yeasts and malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Matured on fine lees for 6 months. Light fining before bottling after 12 months in tanks. Potential ageing - 3 to five years.Winemaker's notes(Feb 2020)
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.
Chablis, the very archetype of dry white wine. Whether accompanying something from the deep, or a light lunch, or enjoyed elegantly with friends, the crisp minerality of a Chablis is hard to beat. And, of course, it is ideal aperitif served nicely chilled before a good dinner.
