Chablis Grand Cru “Blanchot”

Chablis Grand Cru “Blanchot” bottle

Since a law was passed in 1938, 111 hectares of south/south-western facing vines that benefit from optimal exposure to the sun and stretch out in a crescent shape along the right bank of the Serein river are entitled to bear the Chablis Grand Cru appellation. The seven single vineyards or “climats” that have contributed to the international reputation of the Chablis region's Great White Wines are: Les Clos, Vaudésir, Valmur, Blanchot, Les Preuses, Grenouilles, and Bougros.

Notes of yeast, chalk, ripe Amalfi lemon peel and white summer blossom unite into a seductive, creamy nose on this wine. Toasty, oaky smoke also hovers but is beautifully subdued. The palate also encompasses these notions but focuses on concentrated, stony depth and pithy texture. It's smooth, cool and bold. Give this elegant wine some time. Drink 2022–2040. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
  • Winemaking

    Aging on fine lees for 14 months.

  • Nose

    Already intense and complexe nose with notes of grilled almonds and pineapple.

  • Palate

    In the mouth the wine is rich with fine and elegant woodiness, good length and a finish that returns to mineral notes.
