"Tart apple and fresh lemon suffused with chalk and alkali and tinged with fusil oils mark the nose and firm palate of Droin’s 2011 Chablis, which finishes with impressive sheer persistence but not the generous juiciness, buoyancy or energy of the corresponding Petit Chablis. Plan to enjoy this through 2014. While Droin emphasizes how special he thinks the Portlandian plateau above the grand crus is, from which comes his Petit Chablis, he adds that be believes ‘the Kimmeridgian will show itself in time, and (thus) this Chablis will come out ahead.'”

2012 Domaine Servin Chablis Les Pargues

"The Servin 2012 Chablis Premier Cuvee Les Pargues – from a site of manifestly but never official cru quality and constituting, as usual, a selection of tanks from old vines to be bottled late and unfiltered for U.S. importer Peter Weygandt – leads with a fantastic nose that could only come from Chablis. Sweet-saline shrimp and lobster shell reductions vie for attention with Normandie Sydre-like apple and pear, migrating onto a lush, succulently-juicy palate and leading to a mouthwatering finish still full of mysterious crustacean appeal as well as marked by chalky and faintly acrid and metallic but undeniably invigorating notes."

2012 Domaine Servin Chablis Vaillons

"The tank-raised Servin 2012 Chablis Vaillons features very ripe pear, peach, and pineapple with faintly volatile and distilled fruit overtones juxtaposed with stone and ash, and laced with welcome salinity that helps guarantee a mouthwatering extension."
