Another slightly atypical Chablis from the ripe and rich 2016 vintage. Burghound notes the richness seen in this top site of Chablis “Notes of melon, dried apricot and honey are nuanced by seashore hints. The rich, very generous and dense big-bodied flavors manage to retain ample vibrancy on the impressively persistent, firm and citrus rind-suffused finish…” and The Wine Advocate concurs “On the palate, it's full-bodied, concentrated and gourmand, with lots of textural fat and ripe...” These wines are approachable now given their backbone and extract so this is a bottle you can enjoy this summer with some fresh oysters or shellfish as the perfect match. A fantastic bottle for those who like Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet to the south – without the higher ticket price!
