Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 94 (43739)

The nose makes clear that it could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its equally elegant and cool array of iodine, oyster shell, mineral reduction and sea breeze whiffs that are punctuated by floral, citrus and pear scents. The ultra-sleek and almost painfully intense mineral-inflected big-bodied flavors possess first-rate power and punch before culminating in a sappy, hugely long and super-saline finish. Magnificent but note well that at least some patience required.

Vinous - Score: 94-96 (43313)

The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru is perhaps more closed on the nose compared to the Les Preuses, at least on the day of my visit. It unfurls slowly with citrus lemon, flint and light undergrowth aromas. The palate is much more expressive with refined citrus fruit laced with spice, very harmonious with a palpable sense of energy towards the persistent finish. This might take longer to come around than the Les Preuses but it will be worth the wait. Pure class.
