About the wine

Tasting notes

Taken from 500-liter used barrel, the 2020 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru is rich and deeply flavoured with a slightly honeyed bouquet . The palate is well balanced and, again, rich and honeyed and needs a lot of time in bottle to come together. One for the cellar.

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
