(from 50+ year old vines). Here too there is a suggestion of the exotic on the lightly wooded aromas of green apple, just sliced citrus and more evident Chablis typicity, especially shellfish wisps. There is better volume to the punchy medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a lingering finish that is shaped by lemon-tinged acidity. This is lovely for its level and a wine that should benefit from at least a few years of keeping. Drinking range: 2026 - Rating: 88 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2023)

Pale colour with a light yellow note. Back to the baked apple perfume of the regular Chablis. But this is better richer and cleaner than the previous wines on the palate, with some flesh and length. Drinking range: 2024 - 2026 Rating: 87-89 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy  (Jun 2022)

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 23 hectares of vineyards, which are certified organic (which sadly cost them dearly in terms of lost crop in 2016 and 2017) and run according to biodynamic principles. Further reading is available in the form of Denis' book 'Les Larmes de Ma Vigne', published in 2020.

The Petit Chablis is a model of brisk freshness - made entirely in stainless steel - while the Premier Crus in benefit from a small amount of barrel-fermentation and élevage. The two named 'lieu-dits' of Chablis 'village', Les Reinettes and Croix aux Moines, are about a hectare in total. The Troësmes is within the larger premier cru 'Beauroy'. The Pommiers think this 'best bit' deserves to be identified by its correct name. It 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 for four to six years.
