Ash game smoke and a host of dark aromas and flavors add complexity to the rich deep fruit. This is a rather unusual Chablis for its body and sheer heft but all of the elements meld together well in the glass. If there is such a thing as a masculine Chablis this is it. Les Lys is a plot within Vaillons (and could be bottled as such) but with a north to northeast exposure rare among Chablis's 1er crus. The vines in this plot are 60 years old. A fair amount of millerandage keeps yields quite low. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. -AG

A cool airy and sophisticated nose offers up extremely fresh and pure aromas of stone white peach and a hint of mineral reduction that complements the subtle even delicate flavors that possess really lovely detail and ample minerality on the citrusy clean and delineated finish. Lovely stuff fashioned in an understated style.

Fairly large-scaled and rich on the attack with sweet citrus white peach and spice flavors. Then more taut on the back end than the Vaillons with an impression of strong acidity making this less easy to taste today than the Vaillons. From a north-facing site that produced a moderate 35 hectoliters per hectare in 2009 according to Seguier.
