  • Situation

    Côte de Léchet is located on the left bank of the Serein, which enjoys excellent south-east exposure. The soil is very poor and stony, producing low yields and grapes that often ripen early due to the sunshine. Questions remain as to the origin of its name: it could be linked to the verb "lâcher" in French "to let go" in the sense of abandoning. The hill may have been abandoned some time ago. But "Côte de Léchet" could also derive from the word "laîche", the name of a plant that grows in damp places.

      From this stony terroir, a firm, fresh mineral wine, with almond bitterness and citrus notes and a firm finish. 2025-29.

      Biscuits, oyster shells, lemon rind and white grapefruit here. Touch of bitter fennel. Medium-bodied, bone-dry and focused. Lingering biscuity and citrus rind character. Drink now or hold.

      The nose is nicely mineral, precise, fresh and offers a small tense side as well as a discreet chalky side (in the background). It reveals notes of crunchy flat peach, white flowers and small notes of fresh acacia combined with touches of zest, fresh lime and a mineral/chalky side. The palate is fruity, elegant and offers juiciness, minerality, freshness, delicacy, a certain racy power, a good definition, tension, precision as well as a beautiful racy side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy, fresh flat peach, small juicy white fruits and small notes of white flowers associated with slight hints of starfruit, lemon as well as small chalky hints and an imperceptible almost grapefruit hint. Good length.

      Slim and bright, with lime-flower aromas. Straight and pure, with an attractive pithy bitterness to finish. 2023-2026

      The first nose where I can say 'yes!' Crystal clean with a suggestion of sucrosity in the citrus energy. A slightly rustic first wave of flavour but tons of energy like a ragged young puppy while the middle and finishing flavours are super, even a little chalky. Great character and a super wine too.

    • Chablis 1er Cru "Côte de Léchet" 2020 - July 2022 - James Suckling - 93/100

      A very classic Premier Cru Chablis with the chalky austerity we expect from these wines. Excellent depth of candied citrus-peel and wild-herb flavors, the minerality underlined by fine tannins at the impressively long finish. Drink or hold.

      The full and ripe citrus nose is matched by the same character on the quite expansive, creamy palate. A touch of caramel, but it remains so fresh and the long finish is decisively dry. Drink or hold.

      Lime zest, wet stone, biscuit and peach pit on the nose. It's medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Flint and lemon pith on the finish. Tight. Drink now.
