The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is more integrated, exhibiting notes of lemon oil, preserved citrus, nutmeg and tart pear. On the palate, it's layered, full-bodied and structurally reserved, with good concentration and bright, mouthwatering acids.

The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru, which is 50% in barrel and 50% in tank when I visited, has a very composed bouquet with scents of white flower, chalk, a slight fish oil aroma that lends it an Asian influence. I love the definition here. The palate is very well balanced with a taut line of acidity, fresh and full of tension with a vivid, beautifully poised finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent.

Once again the presence of moderate wood influence does not suppress the expressiveness of the mildly exotic white orchard fruit and oyster shell aromas. The delicious and succulent medium plus weight flavors possess ample amounts of minerality and sappy dry extract that buffers the lemon-tinged acid spine shaping the powerful, complex and impressively persistent finale. This too is very promising.
