This full-bodied and powerful Chablis has years and years of life ahead of it. The developing bouquet is very complex with the classic scents of citrus, spice, minerals and apples. On the palate, the wine is concentrated with the most refreshing mouth-watering acidity coupled with the glory of ripe citrus fruits. The most famous and the largest of all the grand crus Within Chablis Les Clos' secret is its southerly facing vineyard of deep clay soil and its bedrock of limestone, Which gives Les Clos its signature spicy finish.
Burghound"Stylistically, this closely resembles the Valmur with its ultra elegant and pure aromas featuring white flowers, oyster shell and subtle spice notes that perfectly complement the round, powerful, rich and full-bodied flavors that coating the mouth and culminate in a saliva-inducing, incredibly intense finish that reminded me more than a little of a great Corton-Charlemagne. This just oozes minerality and the texture is akin to rolling rocks around in your mouth. A great Les Clos."
International Wine CellarRating: 94/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 129, November/December 2006 ($100) Pale straw-yellow. Aromas of iodine, crushed stone, flint and oatmeal. Wonderfully sweet and creamy, with its pliant mouthfeel firmed by vibrant minerality. Finishes taut and racy, with terrific lift. Very young but not at all hard. This is already suave.
