The 2015 Chablis St Martin has what you might describe as a "dainty" nose at first, a little timid, but it soon finds it voice courtesy of its apple blossom and fresh pear aromas, perhaps with a hint of peppermint in the background. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. I appreciate the tension of this Chablis: taut and linear, quite saline in the mouth and this serves to prolong the finish. This is a well-crafted and very delicious Chablis from Gregory Viennois and his team. This comes recommended. (NM)
A ripe yet agreeably fresh nose features notes of pear, apple, white flowers and just enough typical Chablis character to be persuasive. There is both good richness and volume to the delicious, round and acceptably complex flavors that display a hint of bitter lemon on the dry if slightly warm finish. This is perfectly good but not distinguished as the balance isn't what it could be.
For the first time, about 8% of older oak has been used. It has a subdued apricot nose, leading into a fresh, juicy and precise palate. It is very good for generic Chablis, with some welcome minerality. Well balanced and has typicity.Drinking Window 2017 - 2022.(SB)
(Laroche chooses the components for this wine based on blind tastings, but Technical Director Grégory Viennois also ages a small percentage of this village offering, as well as his premier crus, in 55-hectoliter foudres 'for concentration and complexity'): Stone and spearmint aromas are more minerally than those of the slightly tart négociant village bottling. Juicy, minty and nicely delineated, offering good intensity to its citrus fruit flavors. Viennois finds this wine less strict but more complex than the 2014 version. (ST)
Lovely balance and expressive flavors of apple, peach and lemon highlight this juicy white. Leaves a mouthwatering impression on the stony finish. Drink now through 2018. (BS)
