Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2010

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceBy no means the richest of the powerful Grand Cru Les Clos, this is still an ample, generous, concentrated example that builds from first floral whiff through to an expansive, concentrated palate. The vines are now in their third decade, facing south on deep clay soil over Kimmeridgian soil. Stone, white peach and delicate florals quickly give way to a fatter, richer palate. Ripe pear, peach, lemon curd, quince lift broken stone, honey and spice along the smooth, full palate to a lengthy spicy and salty finish. 18 months spent on lees in foudre reveals itself through a structured generosity. Drinking well now, though will improve with 5+ years.Tasted: 17 April 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
