Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru les Blanchots has a very detailed bouquet with crushed rock, gypsum, green apple and light sea spray scents that are all beautifully poised and show a little more pedigree than the Les Bouguerots. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, detailed and poised with a very well-judged line of acidity. What it might be just missing is that killer blow on the finish, just tapering a little prematurely when you are enjoying the show too much. Perhaps that will be addressed with continued bottle age? This apart, it represents an excellent Blanchots.Author: Robert Parker
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
