Tasting and food pairings
This wine is floral, delicate and light with a subtle bouquet of ageing roses, undergrowth and meadow mushrooms. The wines from Chablis Blanchot have a lovely combination of aromas. Fresh, powerful and supple, they have a wonderful mineral persistency. Feminine and rich, they develop a bit faster than other Grands Crus. To be drunk in 4-5 years.

- Chablis Grand Cru "Blanchot" 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 94/100A lot of summer-meadow and some oyster-shell aromas here. A sophisticated Chablis with a lot of underplayed power. A long elegant, supple and almost silky finish. Drink or hold.
