Goedhuis, November 2020
An open and easy style, showing charming honeyed fruit characters. This has an attractive silky texture with a good line of saline citrus personality at the end. Easy and approachable. Drink 2021-2024
Matthew Jukes, December 2020,
There is a touch of lime and pine here which gives this wine a piercingly fresh and cool attack. The palate barely fills out as it continues its javelin-shaped assault. Slender, lean and green, this is a pointy number for relatively early drinking. It already feels like it is calling for a plateau de fruits de mer!
Jasper Morris MW, December 2020,
Pale lemon colour, with a warm and sunny nose backed by a touch of minerality. Ripe apples again, here the fruit is a little bit more tensile than for the Petit Chablis and it is certainly very persistent. 4 stars.
Denis et Isabelle Pommier
From small acorns grow mighty oaks. Denis and Isabelle Pommier created this charming estate in 1990 after inheriting several small parcels from Denis’s grandfather. Today, through astuteness and hard work, they have expanded the domaine to 23 hectares of high-quality vineyards, all benefitting from organic practices since 2014. The Pommiers craft vibrant, aromatic wines from native yeasts in a fruit forward style with graceful volume. They always have a classic Chablis freshness, combining well with floral and ripe Chardonnay flavours. The premiers crus are part fermented in barrels of varying ages and are delicious expressions of their Kimmeridgian terroirs.
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.
