Remarkably complex bouquet, blending fruity, floral and spicy notes with a substantial mineral touch. Structured palate, opening up with age to give powerful, generous wines. -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Advocate (WA)
Just bottled, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is showing well, unwinding in the glass with a pure and charming bouquet of ripe citrus fruits, crisp yellow apples, beeswax and spring flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny-textured, with an enveloping core of fruit, ripe but succulent acids and a long, precise and delicately chalky finish. While this is naturally a little shut down after its recent mise en bouteille, this is a charming, nicely defined vintage of Les Clos that will offer a broad drinking window.

Here too there is enough wood to merit mentioning on the decidedly cool and reserved nose that offers up plenty of floral elements along with those of citrus, iodine and oyster shell. The lavishly rich, muscular and overtly powerful flavors possess the hallmark minerality that carries over to the dense, citrusy and very dry finish. This beauty should age effortlessly.

No one can rival William Fèvre’s 4.12ha of holdings in Chablis’ most prestigious grand cru, much of it from old vines. The wine is leesy, waxy and complete, showing understated wood, layers of citrus and umami, and the power and backbone to age in bottle. Drinking Window 2022 – 2035

The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru, from 4 hectares at the top of the hill, was harvested at around 23-24hl/ha. It has a very precise bouquet with oyster leaf, Granny Smith apples, wet granite and hints of almond that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a touch of roundness on the entry that is counterbalanced by fine bead of acidity. There is wonderful salinity and a dash of spice on the finish. This is a Chablis that should give at least a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure.
