Tasting Notes

Aromas of quinine, essence of wet stone and seashore add breadth to the nose of pear, apple and anise. Once again there is fine density and intensity to the mouthcoating medium-weight flavors that flash outstanding length on the bracingly saline-suffused finale. This has already developed very good depth and more will almost surely follow. This is potentially outstanding.

Score: 95

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2032+ 10 October 2022

The 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is, if anything, even more electric than the formidable Valmur, wafting from the glass with notions of citrus oil, freshly baked bread, oyster jus and wet stones. Full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, it's racy and intense, with a bright spine of acidity and a long, intensely saline finish.

Score: 95

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, Maturity: 2027-2050 21 July 2022

The 2020 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru comes from 2.5 hectares of vines in two locations, one east-facing and one southwest-facing. It has quite a deep, intense nose featuring lemon zest, crushed stone, linden and touches of citrus peel. The cohesive palate is smooth and harmonious with fine salinity, if maybe not quite building on its initial promise, as the finish pulls up just a little short compared to the Bougros. Still, this should age well in bottle.

Score: 91 - 93

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2024-2038 01 October 2021

William Fèvre have vines in both sections of Preuses, the slope leading down to the valley of Vaudésir, currently young vines, and on the plateau. More yellow in the colour. This is a muscular wine with a heart of suavity. Much more powerful than the Bougros. Spices all round, five star anis, some bacon in the blend. Fairly massive.

Score: 93 - 95
