The purity and freshness of the 2014 vintage are both expressed in this Chablis Grand Cru Clos. Straight and rich, with notes of citrus and vanilla, it offers a nice balance and a slightly iodized finish.

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos, which is aged 50% in barrel and 50% in stainless steel for 18 months, has an airy and detailed bouquet with apple blossom and fresh pear scents, unfurling nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with sappy red apple and pear notes, fine mineralité. Drink 2017-2029.
- Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos" 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 95/100The richest and most complex of the 2016 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis with a hint of butterscotch and a lot of flinty character. The longer it aerates, the more that comes through. Very long, complete finish. Drink or hold..
