Average critic rating : 90.0 points



The 2012 Chablis 1er Cru Cote de Lechet has a very classy bouquet with hints of tropical fruit imprisoned underneath its minerality. The palate is well-balanced with green apple, fresh pear and lemon zest on the entry. It feels a little tight and very linear toward the seashell-tinged finish - almost like a fine Muscadet! This represents another impressive Chablis from Pommier.||I received the wines from Isabelle and Denis Pommier after my visit to the region. I am so glad that they sent the samples because these were an absolute delight. Based in the village of Poinchy, they initially inherited just 2 hectares of vines back in 1990, which has gradually expanded to 16 hectares. They recently converted to organic viticulture. The harvest is conducted by hand and is mostly fermented and aged in stainless steel vats. There is some barrel aging, the wood sourced from four coopers. I just admired the authenticity of these Chablis wines - rarely extravagant or profound - yet consistently balanced, mineral-driven and precise. These all come highly recommended.
