Hot and dry, 2020’s conditions don’t seem to lay the ground for classical, pinpoint Chablis – yet somehow the wines are just that. The vineyard is ideally located on hills south of the village of Chablis, which probably helps. It is a vintage with great ageing potential in terms of balance and acidic backbone.
In the glass it has a pale golden color. The aromas are subtle with hints of white flowers and green apples. On the palate there is that impressive minerality which you anticipate with good Chablis, with crunchy apple and citrus fruits with a long and intense finish. This is a persistent, complex and brilliant wine.
