    An elegant and ultra pure white flower and somewhat tropical fruit nose replete with hints of stone, sea breeze and quinine that can also be found on the rich and full flavors that also retain a fine sense of detail on the wonderfully long and balanced finish. A very pure and sophisticated if slightly forward Blanchots.

    Pale color. Musky aromas of white peach, lime, quinine and flint. Rich, spicy and fat with fruit. A very rich wine with a firm, dry finish of powdered stone. This reminded me of the Vaucoupins in its enticing sugar/acid balance. But this is more minerally on the end, and shows a lighter touch.

    Starts out round, then the structure emerges, with a touch of heat on the finish. Green plum, honeydew melon and stone flavors prevail throughout.

    With a lovely nose of ripe pit fruits and sweet floral perfume, and a sultry richness, the 2006 Chablis Blanchots (which I tasted shortly before bottling) sacrifices clarity and juiciness vis a vis the premier crus in this year's Long-Depaquit collection. Alkaline, nutty, faintly bitter notes in the finish - while offsetting the sense of sheer richness - do not lend this dense, full-bodied wine more than modest complexity or the sort of mineral savor displayed by the best 2006s, and I suspect it will be best drunk over the next 2-3 years.
