95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses bursts from the glass with scents of orange oil, warm bread, crisp stone fruits and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and enveloping, yields of only 23 hectoliters per hectare mean that it's immensely concentrated, with racy acids and a long, pungently intense finish.

95pts Burghound

This too could be from nowhere else except Chablis with its citrus-tinged aromas of tidal pool, white flowers and shellfish. The racy, intense and painfully intense larger-scaled flavors possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the bone-dry and super-saline finish where a distinct bitter lemon quality slowly emerges. This is very classy juice and also built-to-age.

93pts Decanter

A surprisingly lean, direct and focussed Grand Cru. Plenty of drive here with pronounced acidity and a mineral freshness to finish. However, there is a lack of complexity at the moment - this will come with another few years in bottle. There is no doubting the purity of fruit - just that the overall effect is rather shy and one-dimensional now. The score reflects future potential.

Winemaker Notes

Floral nose, with fruity aromas enhanced by intense mineral notes and developing lightly smoky touches. Very round on the palate, both full-bodied and refined.
Pair with fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.
