THE CLASSICS COLLECTION

NOVEMBER 2017

8 VINTAGES

REMOISSENET PÈRE & FILS

PULIGNY-MONTRACHET 2014

AC

TASTING NOTE: A vague hint of lactic

doesn’t help the appeal of the otherwise

fresh aroma of white orchard fruit and

acacia blossom and my predicted range

assumes that it will properly clean up.

There is both good volume and richness

to the delicious and attractively textured

flavors that also culminate in a clean,

dry and lingering finale. Drink: 2020+.

Score:

88-91

REMOISSENET PÈRE & FILS

SAINT AUBIN LES CASTETS BLANC

2014

AC

TASTING NOTE: An exceptionally pretty

nose of acacia blossom and essence

of pear is trimmed in just enough wood

to notice. The round, rich and delicious

medium-bodied flavors possess fine

mid-palate concentration while offering

solid depth on the clean, dry and racy

finale. This is lovely and should also

drink well young and with a few years of

bottle age. Drink: 2020+. Outstanding.

Score:

90

CHABLIS

WHITE WINE

DOMAINE CHRISTIAN MOREAU

PÈRE & FILS VALMUR CHABLIS

GRAND CRU 2015

AC

TASTING NOTE: All but invisible wood

easily allows the pure nose of green

fruit, iodine and sea breeze aromas to

be appreciated. There is excellent

power to the rich, intense and focused

flavors that possess a lovely sense of

energy on the textured and palate coating

finish that is borderline rustic. Drink

2020+. Score:

90-92

DOMAINE PINSON FRÈRES

LES CLOS CHABLIS GRAND CRU

2015

AC

TASTING NOTE: Moderate wood sets

off notes of white flowers, pear, apple,

spice and mineral reduction. The wood

can also be found on the rich, bold

and muscular flavors where a distinct

minerality adds lift to the palate drenching

finish. This is one of rare occasions

when a Les Clos will be approachable

young. Drink: 2020+. Score:

90-92

BILLAUD-SIMON MONTÉE DE

TONNERRE CHABLIS 1

ER

CRU 2014

AC

TASTING NOTE: A spicy nose grudgingly

liberates notes of citrus, floral, wet

stone, oyster shell and iodine. There is

a fine blend of power and finesse with

outstanding punch, complexity and

balance on the beautifully lingering and

markedly dry finish. A classic Montée

de Tonnerre of refinement and grace.

Outstanding. Drink 2022+. Score:

93

JEAN DAUVISSAT VIEILLES VIGNES

VAILLONS CHABLIS 1

ER

CRU 2011

AC

TASTING NOTE: The 2011 Chablis

1

er

Cru Vaillons Vieilles Vignes comes

from vines over 80 years old from

2 parcels in Vaillons raised in barrel

and stainless steel in the first year

and only stainless steel in the second. It

demonstrates great detail on the nose:

freshly sliced lemon, complemented

by flint and smoke aromas. The palate

is medium-bodied with an engaging core

of mandarin and apricot, surrounded

by superb mineral notes. Very precise

with great length, this is another superb

Chablis wine. Drink now-2025. Score:

92
