The 2017 les Clos from Monsieur Piuze is also quite a young wine, but in contrast to the rather shut down Blanchots, all of the constituent components here are precisely set down and its future shape is already very facile to read. The bouquet shows lovely ripe fruit, coupled to striking minerality, as it delivers cents of pear, grapefruit, lemon oil, a gorgeous base of flinty minerality, spring flowers and a vibrant topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a beautiful core of fruit, great soil inflection, bright acids and stunning length and grip on the youthful, but now perfectly delineated and very, very promising finish. A great bottle of les Clos in the making.
The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos was reserved and reductive when I tasted it—the least extroverted of all the wines in Piuze's cellar, as is often the case with Les Clos. Notes of lemon oil, crisp peach and iodine mingling with smoky, leesy nuances introduce a full-bodied, deep and promising wine that is less monolithic than the Valmur but no less powerful. It's really too early to get a clear read on this, but its potential, at least, is clear. (WK)
The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru has a very well defined bouquet with scents of citrus peel, albumen, almond and light granitic scents that become more pronounced with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine tension, quite sharp and saline towards the finish that urges you back for another sip. This has great potential. (NM)
Elegant, cool and pure aromas consist of honeysuckle, white orchard fruit, mineral reduction and iodine wisps. There is excellent volume and richness to the intensely stony and muscular flavors that brim with dry extract that buffers the firm, powerful and driving finish that is quite dry as well as ultra-saline. Lovely but patience required.
