Still really pale in colour. Perhaps more volume than Vaulorent but not necessarily any classier. Perhaps greater tension on the palate, with a pure white fruit, a touch of liquorice and a mineral crunch to finish. Very good. Tasted: June 2022 --Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Tasting note: Here the wood treatment is slightly more evident though it still remains a background element on the nose of essence of pear, iodine and pretty citrus wisps. There is first-rate density to the powerful yet refined, even sophisticated, middleweight plus flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality on the compact, bone-dry and sneaky long finish. This is also built-to-age and a wine that should reward a decade plus.—Allen Meadows, Burghound
The 2020 Chablis les Preuses sees 18 months in stainless steel and barrel. It has a clean, precise almost clinical bouquet with subtle granitic scents emerging with time. Vibrant and energetic. The palate is well-balanced with a fine bead of acidity very harmonious with hints of white peach, Nashi pear, and a liberal sprinkling of white pepper. Excellent. Tasted Blind at the BIVB tasting in Chablis.--Neal Martin, Vinous Media
