75cl Chablis
'Montée de Tonnerre'
 1erC
Billaud-Simon

AM -
There is a bit more Chablis typicity present on the cool, pure and more elegant nose that offers up aromas of mineral reduction, iodine, sea shore and green fruit scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. There is excellent intensity and plenty of minerality on the more sophisticated if somewhat less powerful flavours that flash an abundance of salinity on the impressively long finale. This is like rolling small pebbles around your mouth and should also age well.

JEAN-PAUL et BENOIT DROIN
Another fine domaine, making very tasty Chablis, which will improve with additional cellar age.
     
12 75cl Chablis
'Fourchaume'
 1erC
Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin

AM -
There is touch of unabsorbed SO2 sitting atop the otherwise fresh and pretty aromas of floral and white orchard fruit that are laced with hints of iodine and quinine. There is fine intensity to the relatively supple flavours that immediately tighten up on the focused, balanced and markedly dry finish. This too will require at least some patience before it's ready for prime time.

'Mont de Millieu'
 1erC
Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin

AM - Touches of sulphur and reduction push the mildly exotic aromas of orange peel and melon to the background at present. More interesting are the super-sleek, intense and generously proportioned flavours that are also quite seductively textured thanks to the copious dry extract that coats the palate on the powerful, bone dry and solidly precise finish. Good stuff and worth considering provided that you have at least some patience.

    DOMAINE CHANSON

16 75cl Chablis
'Les Clos'
 Grand Cru
Chanson

AM - An elegant, pure and attractively complex nose offers up notes of citrus, stone, seaweed and iodine. There is excellent volume and power to the punchy, intense and well-detailed medium-bodied flavours that exude a fine minerality on the solidly long finish that displays a hint of bitter lemon.

'La Moutonne Monopole'
 Grand Cru
Long-Depaquit

AM - A beautifully layered nose is comprised of mineral reduction, floral notes and citrus zest. The dense, powerful and impressively scaled medium-bodied flavours possess excellent intensity before culminating in a highly persistent and impeccably well-balanced finale. As is often the case at this address, the La Moutonne is the best wine in the range.
