Exotic citrus, lime peel, grapefruit and lemon zest, all combined with stony minerally accents, light honey and spices. The palate has a superb succulent sweep of fruit flesh and deeply intense and ripe white nectarines. A little hazelnut to close. Terrific. Drink or hold.
The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is lovely, offering up notes of orange blossom, mandarin oil and salty oystershells. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, stony and tensile, with good cut and a saline finish. It's a classic, mineral Les Preuses that should drink well for a decade. (NM)
Here too there is enough wood influence to comment on setting off the citrus-inflected green fruit and honeysuckle aromas. The mouth feel of the less mineral driven and powerful flavors is indisputably finer while already displaying fine complexity on the sophisticated if somewhat short and austere finish where the wood once again comes up on the finale. This too should reward a few years of cellaring and improve the length as I suspect the bottling has disrupted the balance.
The 2016 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru has one of the superior aromatics: flint and smoke at first, citrus fruit with apple peel and light Conference pear aromas. I like the detail here and unlike others, the sulphur is handled well. The palate is crisp and taut with a fine bead of acidity, nicely balanced with a sense of harmony. There is impressive tension on the finish, completing a fine Les Preuses that should age with style. Tasted blind at the BIVB Chablis tasting. (NM)
