#40 James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of France 2021

Incredible wine here with cooked-apple, lemon-curd, vanilla-bean and praline aromas that follow through to a full body with layers of fruit and a long, flavorful finish. It shows aniseed, licorice and fennel seed.—James Suckling

The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos has turned out brilliantly, mingling aromas of orange oil, confit citrus and crisp green apple with notes of warm bread, white flowers, oyster shell and anise in an incipiently complex bouquet. Full-bodied, layered and muscular, it's concentrated and tightly wound, with broad shoulders and huge depth at the core, concluding with a long, electric finish. It was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

2ha of Les Clos were planted by Maurice Fèvre between 1947 and 1952, a time when much of the hillside was bare. The 2019 yields just 25 h/ha and had recently been racked, so had not fallen clear. The bouquet is immense. Keep sniffing, and it keeps offering more. This year Les Clos has a dimension over and above all the others. Not just density, but amazing depth. A little touch of bitters too, which we like at this stage. Such great length! Tasted: July 2020—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Note: from 4 separate parcels totaling 4.11 ha, 3 of which are all at the top of the slope
Tasting note: If Kimmeridgian could be distilled, it would likely smell exactly like the nose of the 2019 Les Clos with the addition of wet chalk, citrus zest and oyster shell. There is equally good delineation to the snappy, painfully intense and overtly stony large-bodied flavors that deliver superb length on the balanced finale. This elegant and classy effort is also built on a base of almost pungent minerality and a wine that should age effortlessly.—Allen Meadows, Burghound
