"The 2016 Chablis has a cheeky hint of white chocolate on the nose, very faint, just hiding behind a carapace of green apple and flinty aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and focused with a pleasant marine influence that washes over the finish. This is an intriguing and satisfying Chablis Village that punches above its weight. Tasted blind at the BIVB Chablis tasting." (VM)

"The degree to which this village-level Chablis transcends its classification is not to be believed. If you want a pitch-perfect house white to reach for repeatedly over the next few years, stock up on this one!" -Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier
