Tasting and food pairings
The Chablis Grand Cru Preuses 2016 with its intense yellow dress is a very aromatic and powerful wine. It reveals aromas of white flowers (Acacia) as well as a beautiful minerality. As we get older, we'll have the appearance of stone aromas as well as roasted and buttered notes.
In the mouth, this wine remains delicate and round despite a frank and mineral attack.
Drink with: fish and poultry in white sauce, shellfish and foie gras.

- Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2016 |90-100 - The World of Fine Wine - March 2018Very concentrated, creamy, powerful; a big structure wrapped in flesh. Salty, powerful, lovely balance and richness. Feels as though the creaminess comes from oak, but apparently there's no oak. Aromatic and succulent. - Margaret Rand. (We confirm, there is no oak!)
- Chablis Grand Cru "Preuses" 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 94/100Ripe and bold but with great freshness. This is an imposing and elegant wine with a rich lemon-tart character. Flinty and salty, a very long, super-elegant finish. Drink or hold.
