Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2013 Oct.)

This is also highly perfumed with a pronounced floral component dominating the other aromas that are composed of citrus, seaweed, iodine and mineral reduction while leaving no doubt that this could be nothing other than Chablis. There is excellent size, weight and muscle to the overtly powerful and well-concentrated flavors that exude a fine minerality on the extract rich finish. This explosive effort is almost aggressively saline and should improve for up to a decade in bottle.

Vinous - Score: 94 (2013 Aug.)

The 2011 Chablis Les Clos is especially massive in this vintage. Rich, voluptuous and enveloping, the 2011 wraps around the palate with a crescendo of aromas and flavors supported by equally imposing structure. The style is quite powerful. It will be interesting to see if more Clos finesse develops over time.
