  • 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.

      Restrained and cool nose. Aromas of pear with the addition of a distinct floral component. On the palate, there is excellent underlying tension to the almost pungently mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a linear, compact and bone dry finale. 

    • Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot 2016 |90-100 - The World of Fine Wine - March 2018Rich and opulent, saline and expressive, very mineral. Underneath this apparently open exterior is plenty of tight depth. - Margaret Rand.
    • 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.
    • Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot 2014 - 89/100 - Wine Spectator - May 2017

      This boasts ample richness but shows good cut defining the apple, lemon and stone flavors. The aftertaste resonates with the tangy acidity. Drink now through 2022.
