An overtly exotic nose features a broad-ranging array of pear, apple, white peach and ocean breeze scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent volume and fine intensity to the lush and very round medium weight plus flavors that possess fine power, concentration and plenty of mouth coating extract, all wrapped in a citrus-inflected, balanced and impressively persistent finale. This is the best wine in the range in 2013 that again should be accessible young but reward a few years of cellaring as well.
The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru Château Grenouilles has a clean and precise, chalky nose that needs a little encouragement from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, just a dab of lemongrass lending tension but perhaps missing the vigour of La Chablisienne's other, generally very commendable Grand Crus. Drink over the next decade. (NM)
Some seductively mature aromas starting to show – cedar, resin and honey even though it is so dry. More cedar on the palate. On the lean side but long and in balance. Wonderful drive and persistence in classic Chablis tension. Very long. (JH) 17.5/20
