2015 Chablis Grand Cru La Moutonne Monopole
Awaiting Tasting Note
`Pale lemon. Aromatically restrained [under Diam 30], but gradually opened to reveal a subtle weave of citrus, floral, and light spice scents. Dense and rich – there is grandeur here – and enough animating acidity and intensity for it to hold its shape. A light oak dryness should integrate.` 89pts, Neil Beckett, The World of Fine Wine, December 2018
`From just 2.24 ha in Vaudésir plus a 0.11 ha nibble of Les Preuses, this lieux-dit monopole among the Grand Crus has only had three owners in five centuries. The 2013 is a soft, graceful Chablis with scents of linden blossom and vine flower and a deep, structured, mellow yet vivid flavour. ample and mouthfilling, yet poised too. I like Grand Crus to have a little breadth to them, to take them beyond Premier Cru pungency and stony asperity; this does. 93 pts` Andrew Jefford, Decanter, September 21, 2015.
