Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots La Réserve de l’Obédience
"...There is excellent density and punch to the relatively bigbodied flavors that exude enough minerality to remark upon and particularly so on the bitter lemon-tinged finish where, like several of these 2015s, a touch of warmth arises..."
The Wine Advocate
"... This felt very closed and tight-lipped by comparison and you had to eke out those white flower, peony aromas. The palate is, again, tight and straight, a strict Chablis with a terse, stony, flinty finish that just needs to develop more joie de vivre..."
"...Pale yellow. An element of spicy oak sweetens the aromas of white peach, lemon, orange zest and minerals. Much riper, richer and broader in the mouth than the basic Blanchots, but with its somewhat sweeter impression nicely countered by harmonious acidity..."
"Powerful mineral nose, has heft and assertiveness. Aged mostly in oak, but not new oak, so the wood adds texture rather than flavour. Very rich with a distinct sucrosity, it seems to have less initial grip than the regular Blanchots, but then the mineral bite and grip creep up on the finish. Very long."
