The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Séchet fulfills the tremendous promise that it demonstrated in barrel last year. It has an expressive bouquet with scents of wild honey and a touch of petrol, leaning a little towards Riesling in style but with marvelous delineation. The palate is nervous and tensile, shimmering with energy which is quite amazing considering that 2015 was not supposed to have a high-acidity finish. The aftertaste is so mineral driven that the Séchet momentarily transports you to the vineyard. This comes highly recommended: an intellectual Chablis that should mature with style. (NM)
The 2015 Séchet from Vincent Dauvissat is also excellent this year. The bouquet is bright nascently complex and quite expressive, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, orange zest, paraffin, chalky minerality, just a touch of grapefruit and spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and simply rock solid at the core, with superb backend cut and grip. Excellent juice. Drink between 2016-2040 92+
Closed nose with a light nuttiness. Firm and robust, with seductive apricot fruit and a sleek texture. An elegant style that's restrained but subtle and complex. Good length. (SB)
(there will be one last bottling of this wine, before Christmas): Much more about terroir than Chardonnay fruit on the nose, conveying scents of lemon, dried fruits, praline and almost medicinal menthol. Very rich and broad but almost austere, offering a wonderfully fine-grained texture but little in the way of easy sweetness. Finishes very long and taut, with noteworthy nervosité for the year. (ST)
A mild hint of exotic fruit characterizes the nose of honeysuckle and citrus peel along with plenty of iodine and seaweed hints that are also trimmed in a whiff of menthol. There is more volume and richness to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced, clean and markedly dry finale where a hint of bitter lemon arises. I would allow this sneaky long effort at least a few years of cellaring though once again it could be approached young.
