Pale green colour with green highlights, striking luminosity. Discreet bouquet initially but develops into notes of honey and mushrooms. Very fresh first impression in the mouth with a touch of menthol. A wine that characterizes the vintage well ; dry and straightforward. The finish is quite long, allowing expression of the emerging minerality with an accompanying touch of caramel. A Premier Cru that is both fleshy and round.
A pleasant colour of straw yellow. Limpid and brilliant wine. A complex bouquet bringing together aromas of ripe yellow fruit and citrus, along with a discreet oaky touch. The first impression on tasting is its suppleness, which is nicely balanced by refreshing minerality. The length on the palate is remarkable – thus indicating very good cellaring potential.
A discrete bouquet due to its youth, yet giving a suggestion of light oaky vanilla along with hints of white-fleshed fruit aromas. Powerful, rich and very complex in the mouth, quite typical for such a wine that is not yet fully developed. A great wine requiring patience. It will need to be left a few months – if not a few years Ð in order for its full potential to show. The austerity of this Chablis Grand Cru, Chteau Grenouilles 2010 is a promise of quality and leaves us in anticipation of some great future tastings.
At this time it is still young and discreet. A bouquet of fresh mint with notes of butter and vanilla. In the mouth it reveals great finesse, like lace. The balance between acidity and richness indicates very promising cellaring potential. This is a wine that should easily age for a good ten years but for the moment we can appreciate its auspicious youthful charm. Needs only to be opened and enjoyed.
Pale yellow colour with silver glints. Limpid and brilliant wine. Bouquet only partially open but giving fresh, white-fleshed fruit with a hint of spiciness On aeration, a mineral note brings complexity to the ensemble. Long aromatic persistence. A very energetic first impression in the mouth along with fattiness. A combination of acidic and mineral tenseness is also noticeable. The balance is outstanding and there is good density. A long, lingering finish. A fine Chablis with a lot of promise despite the unremarkable vintage.
The tiny Saint-Bris appellation is quite a rarity, in that it is a Burgundian AC planted to the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Impress your guests with this tidbit, and with this tasty Burgundian Savvy. David Schildknecht, writing on Jancis Robinson’s website, stated in May 2004 that ‘the best growers farming this appellation … render among the most fascinating and delicious Sauvignons on the planet.’
