BROCARD CHABLIS GRAND CRU LES PREUSES

CA$132.35
The Les Preuses Grand Cru site is located on a geological 'amphitheater' created by the Vaud├ęsir valley. The vines are planted to a southeastern exposure, receiving heaps of sunshine to aid in ripening. The sub-soil offers a harmonious combination of compact clay and calcareous soils.

Aromatically the wine is intensely floral and stone fruit-driven, with quince, Asian pears, yellow apples, jasmine, and honeysuckle lifting from the glass. On the palate, there is a luxurious creaminess to the wine, with a final note of bracing minerality to balance it out.

A yeasty, funky, earthy and still slightly reductive, flinty haze clouds this wine's nose for now. On the palate, however, three elements combine for deliciousness. The wine offers the ripe juiciness of tangerine-tinged stone fruit, cool, profound chalky depth and pervasive freshness. It has energy and animating verve. This little genie in the bottle will work its magic over years. Drink by 2040. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
