Albert Bichot Chablis Domaine Long-Depaquit Les Clos 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chablis|
The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru is quite rich and powerful, but also heavily marked by oak. Tropical fruit, exotic spice and strong oak inflections give the Clos its breadth and sweetness. It would be nice to see a little more Clos personality. Even so, the 2017 is nicely done.
Lush in texture and packed with juicy peach, apple and pastry flavors, this white is charming. Shows good cut underneath and a vein of mineral that should emerge with short-term aging. Drink now through 2024.
