    DOMAINE des MALANDES
A really good up-and-coming domaine; clients owe it to themselves to try a few bottles; moreover the prices are reasonable and thus the wines offer excellent price/quality ratios.
     
28 75cl Chablis
'Montmains'
Vieilles Vignes

 1er Cru
Domaine des Malandes

AM - The usual plethora of floral elements in a fine Montmains is immediately evident on the iodine, citrus and algae-suffused nose.
The old vines are very much in evidence as well as there is a copious amount of dry extract that imparts a seductive texture to the utterly delicious middle weight flavors and finish that deliver excellent depth and length on the stony finale. Textbook Montmains.

    DOMAINE CHANSON
Since 1999 Domaine Chanson has been owned by the BOLLINGER Champagne  Group; who in 2001 embarked on large-scale investment programme aimed at improving the quality of the wines.
     
8 75cl Chablis
'Montmains'
 1er Cru
Chanson

AM - An expressive nose features notes of oyster shell, iodine, pear and sea breeze. There is good freshness and verve to the delicious, round and easy-to-like flavors that possess good energy and mid-palate fat, all wrapped in a clean, dry and moderately complex finish.

2011 £16.00 AM88
2013-23
18 75cl Chablis
'Les Clos'
 Grand Cru
Chanson

AM - This is similar to the nose of the Montée de Tonnerre in that there is mineral reduction present on the pretty and pure nose that displays plenty of Chablis character to the white flower-scented aromas. There is excellent intensity to the powerful, concentrated and energetic medium weight plus flavours that deliver a lovely stony quality on the notably dry, long and well-balanced finish.
This is very good.

2012 £37.00 AM92
2018-30
34 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 flavors that exude a fine minerality on the solidly long finish that displays a hint of bitter lemon.

2011 £36.00 AM90
2015-29
           
    DOMAINE
LONG-DEPAQUIT
AM - A 2.35 ha monopole that spans a parcel of vines situated in both Vaudésir and Preuses though 95% of it is in Vaudésir. The site is protected from the wind and often gives very ripe wines; <25% new wood.
     
6 75cl Chablis
'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 flavour possess excellent intensity before culminating in a highly persistent and impeccably well-balanced finale.

2011 £49.00 AM94
2016-35
 
21 75cl Chablis
'La Moutonne - Monopole'
Grand Cru
Long-Depaquit

AM -
Here the nose is notably more elegant with ripe, pure and nuanced aromas of ripe but cool green and white fruit that again reflects copious amounts of mineral reduction before marrying into powerful and mineral-driven flavours that offer fine detail and excellent length. I very much like the silky mouth feel as well as the explosive but balanced finish. This should be excellent.
2009 £47.00 AM93

    DOMAINE
WILLIAM FEVRE
Since having been taken over in 1998 by Bouchard Pére & Fils, the quality of these wines has really improved.
This estate now produces some of the best Chablis; classical mineral/steely and fruit driven wines.

Please note: All wines listed are Domaine Wines and not from the negociant side of the business (unless indicated otherwise).
     
18 75cl Chablis
'Les Clos'
Grand Cru
W. Fevre

AM -
There is noticeable wood on the ripe and intensely floral nose that also reflects notes of pear, white peach and algae. This is an imposingly scaled wine with its broad and muscular mouth feel that exudes a seemingly endless reserve of minerality on the almost painfully intense finish that delivers flat out amazing length. This is a very powerful wine that is akin to sucking on rocks it is so mineral-inflected. Brilliant.
2012 £75.00 AM96
2022-32
30 75cl Chablis
'Les Clos'
Grand Cru
W. Fevre

AM -
As it was from cask last year this remains quite closed but aggressive swirling liberates ripe aromas of sea breeze, pear, lemon rind, oyster shell and mineral reduction plus an abundance of typical floral scents. The large-scaled flavours are overtly powerful and impressively concentrated as there is plenty of palate staining dry extract that also buffers the very firm acidity that supports and shapes the gorgeously precise finish. This explosively long effort possesses exquisite balance and the tightly wound flavors are going to need at least 5 to 7 years of bottle age to really flesh out and blossom. This is also a knock-out.
2011 £62.00 AM94
2017-30
2 75cl Chablis
'Les Clos'
Grand Cru
W. Fevre

AM -
Here the wood influence is somewhat more noticeable though not enough to materially detract from the otherwise pure, cool and high-toned white flower, stone and sea breeze suffused aromas that complement well the rich, powerful and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess fine focus and verve on the explosively long and oyster shell-infused finish. This is seriously impressive in absolute terms but especially so in the context of the vintage.
