Nathalie on 2020:
The fermentations are done – and before Christmas too. I had some worry because the harvest would be in August but in the end the balance is super – perhaps because the nights were cool. Very happy.

​Nathalie on 2019:
45 hl/ha is our average harvest but still it’s a bit down in quantity. Sunny but less ‘round’ than 2018, richer though because of the lower yields. In 2019 the degrees are a bit higher – more than in 2018 – we have 13-13.6° though just one at the latter… The markets are all over the place – June to August we have never been so busy but that only balances the slower months – so extra-complicated in the last 12 months but the sales are not too bad.

The wines…

Great villages wines in 2019, the 1ers also excellent…

All natural cork – from a real ‘family domaine’ from Spain:

2019 Chablis
Normally about 12 parcels are assembled here, and this cuvée would represent about 65% of the domaine’s production.
A certain classic green colour to the wine. There’s a nice zesty freshness to this nose. Mouth-filling with plenty of energy. Lots of energy in the finish – intense too – such a baby but it will be a great villages.
2019 Chablis Les Serres
This to be bottled in August – so still plenty of elevage ahead
A beautiful nose of width and silky intensity. Yes! So intense, mouth-filling, very open – slowly melting with fresh flavour. Super definition, great finishing – a really great wine – eventually when it’s bottled.

The following are bottled:

2019 Chablis 1er Vaugiraut
Two parcels; one of 65 years, a third in volume, and the other part, 35 years old. This bottled the last day before holidays – the 23rd December.​
A more floral, less energetic nose. Extra width, a little extra richness of silky texture, more layered with waves of finishing flavour. That’s an excellent wine – lingering really well

2019 Chablis 1er Vaucoupins
1949 planted. A third of the vines of the domaine are massale with and with an average of 50 years of age.
A little more zip of citrus in the width of this nose. Supple, also a richness of texture and concentration, like the last but more mobile, slightly more mineral and certainly more, marginally more, energy. Lovely finish. Excellent wine again.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
