Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    From the clay soils at the top of the Montmain hill, this 2018 has hints of lemon, vanilla and cream. A pleasing generosity of fruit gives an approachable style balanced with a touch of saline freshness.

    Score: 92-94

    The 2018 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is wonderfully complex and nuanced. Spice, dried flowers, tangerine and hazelnut overtones add shades of dimension throughout. The 2018 is generous and plush, but also light on its feet, with veins of minerality that come alive in the glass. Ample and creamy through to the finish, the Montmains is so promising.

  • BURG

    Burghound, October 2019,
    Score: 89-92

    There is a whiff of wood serving as a backdrop for the spice and quinine-inflected aromas of white flowers and poached pear scents. The attractively textured and rich middle weight flavors possess a caressing but solidly intense palate feel before concluding in a sneaky long and bracingly dry finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Drink: 2024+

    Score: 91-93

    From 65 year old vines grown on blue clay soil, one of the classic cuvees chez Pinson. Still a fresh pale colour, but the fruit is riper and more complex. Again there is some fresh apple but this time more freshly baked rather than green fruit. Really stylish with excellent length, just a spice or two at the back.

Producer

Domaine Pinson Freres

The Pinson name is one of the most established in the town of Chablis; the family can trace its history there back to the 1640s. It is now run by brothers Christophe and Laurent, joined by Laurent’s daughter, Charlène. The family team oversee some of the finest parcels of old vines in the region from which they make extraordinarily fine and classical Chablis. They like to use oak barrels for maturation, although the influence of new oak is only ever a gentle whisper in the background of their steely wines. Their wines consistently show the raciness and elegance of fine Chablis.

Region

Chablis

Chablis is world famous for its fine white wines produced from the Chardonnay grape. The best vineyards are perched above the winding Serein river and are south or southwest facing ensuring better ripeness in this cooler climate. It has four appellation levels. Petit Chablis is the most modest and simple followed by Chablis, which is the largest and most prominent. Premier cru Chablis is the third largest appellation and encompasses almost 40 different climats or vineyards including the famed Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaumes and Mont de Milieu. The most noble of all Chablis are the grand crus of which there are 7 climats in total Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot. The wines of Chablis have remained some of the best value in the world, particularly their superb grand crus which can easily cost 50% less than its closest revered white grand cru neighbour, Corton Charlemagne.
