Tasting Notes

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses has a tightly wound and quite strict bouquet, a little backward and demanding more bottle age to really express itself. The palate is well balanced with a touch of spice on the entry, as you would expect from this vintage; it has a pleasant saline touch, moderate weight in the mouth and it gradually builds towards a harmonious, ginger-tinged finish. This has great potential, but it needs 3-4 years in bottle, whereas I feel that the Valmur is more immediate. (92+ Points)

Score: 92

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses comes from two parcels, one steep and east facing and the other southwest-facing on the flatter part. This is quite reserved at the moment, austere and backward, sultry even with light granitic/flint scents that emerge with time. The palate is more generous, you might argue more "Preuses" with dried apricot and orange zest, good weight on the finish but without the pizzazz of the nascent Vaudésir at the moment.

Score: 91 - 93

Along with the Côte Bouguerots and Les Lys, this possesses the most elegant nose in the range with an ultra-pure mixture of green fruit, tidal pool, white flower, citrus rind and iodine hints. There is terrific intensity and delineation to the attractively textured and refined yet powerful flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the gorgeously long, balanced and Zen-like finale.

Score: 93 - 95
