Adeline on 2021:
Not as bad as 2017, we had 39 hl/ha and no maladies.

Adeline on 2020:
Also not a big year, we harvested about 45 hl/ha and we normally manage a bit more than 55.

The wines…

Overall I love the clarity and intensity of flavour this year. Structured, though not particularly saline today but really high achieving.

2020 Chablis
Nicely vibrant nose – mineral and lovely, almost petrolly. Mouth-filling, again vibrant, always mobile. Tasty finishing – just excellent and especially long!

2020 Chablis 1er Les Beauroy
‘Similar terroir to Côte de Léchets, but a bit more argilles blanches. Otherwise, it’s the same exposure, 400 metres as the crow flies.’
More floral – thats great. A small grain of tannin – so mouth-watering, thats a great one!

2020 Chablis 1er Cote de Léchets
Fuller more airy width of aroma. Again lovely, becoming more floral. Wider, more relaxed on the palate, growing more intense – starting easy but then asking more questions of you. I like this, really excellent!

2020 Chablis 1er Montmains
‘Actually its Forêts but I didn’t want confusion with the similar label of Vincent Dauvissat,’ says Laurent.
Airy again, a little more depth to these aromas. A little rounder, more tension, more growing structure, impressively intense in the middle flavours, concentrated but never dense. Finally, wide finishing and holding really well.

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