This is very dense and layered up with almond pastry, spiced pears and quince, ending with grapefruit. Pithy, but integrated and super long. Really succulent and supple. This is a great wine in 2018. Wait a decade here.

The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is superb, revealing an incipiently complex bouquet that mingles orange blossom, iodine, shrimp shell reduction and wet stones in a saliva-inducing mélange. Full-bodied, satiny and multidimensional on the palate, it's layered, elegantly textural but incisive, with racy acids for the vintage and a long, saline finish.
Well-layered aromas are composed by notes of green fruit, seashore, floral and a touch of mineral reduction. There is once again excellent volume to the even more refined and attractively textured flavors that culminate in a bitter lemon, refreshing and balanced finish. This is a lovely combination of power and finesse. Barrel Sample: 90-93
The aristocrat! From 35 year-old vines grown in Kimmeridgian limestone and clay soil, on the right bank of the Serein River with westerly exposition. Floral, pretty, and mineral with great length.
