K&L Notes

95 points Tim Atkin (MW): "Made from a large parcel of 4.5 hectares, this barrel-fermented Premier Cru from one of the right bank’s best sites sees 10% new barrels. The oaking is very sensitively done, as it always is chez Pinson, with restrained fruit for a south-facing vineyard. Textured and refreshing, with creamy lees and tangy minerality. 2019-26."

    Drinking this wine makes me feel like I'm outside on a sunny morning after a big snow storm, breathing in the cool, crisp air, and appreciating how everything smells and looks so clean. Bright notes of lemon rind, white nectarine, and crushed shells give this wine its beautiful aromatic qualities, invigorating acidity awakens the palate and the saline finish lingers on and on. This is a precise and pristine first-class Chablis.

    What a pleasant surprise! This lovely Chablis is punching far above it's weight, and drinking more like a Grand Cru. There's a perfect combination of richness, weight and concentration that strikes a good balance with the crisp, citrus-driven mineral backbone of the wine. The finish is clean and strong, and I don't doubt that it has years of aging potential ahead.

    Stunning! The 2016 Domaine Pinson Chablis 1er Cru "Mont de Milieu" easily competes with Grand Cru Chablis that are 2-3 times the price. Vivid aromas of lemon crème, hazelnuts, sea breeze and citrus zest whaff gracefully from the glass. The palate is electric with intense lemon, iodine, chalk and mineral notes. Complex and multi-faceted this is an ideal 1er Cru that punches way above its weight-class.
    Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2022
