Tasting Notes

Fine pale lemon colour. Some warmth and spice to the nose, typical of the appellation. Just as you think it is easy-going another dimension of energy cracks on, displaying warmth and sunshine by all means but with enough tension behind. Les Preuses offers a rich ripe finish but has not lost an ounce of balance. As ever the texture here reminds me of cashmere. Tasted: May 2019

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, May 2019

Another success is the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses, a full-bodied, ample and enveloping wine that displays notes of orange rind, oyster shell, white flowers and smoke. On the palate, it's deep, concentrated and incisive, concluding with a saline finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (227), August 2019

The 2018 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru is a super-classic expression of this site. Bright, punchy and intensely mineral, the Preuses possesses off-the-charts intensity and exceptional balance, all with the crystalline purity that is the signature of the very best wines from this site. Lemon peel, slate, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and flowers build into the explosive, palate-staining finish. What a magnificent wine this is.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2020

Lots of bitter-lemon character with dried apples, steel and some dried white pineapple. Full-bodied with bright acidity and a fruity finish. Drink or hold.
