Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots – 2018

Vinous
90+ Points

The 2018 Chablis Les Blanchots Grand Cru did not quite engage the senses on the nose. Following on from the delightful Côte de Léchet, it is just missing a bit of lift and vigor. The palate is much better, featuring lemon zest, lime and light orange peel notes on the entry, a fine bead of acidity, and a concentrated, quite penetrating finish that leaves a saline aftertaste. I will be prudent with my score for now, hoping that the aromatics will get their act together.

Decanter
95 Points

Domaine Laroche are the dominant vineyard owner in this Grand Cru, with 4.56 out of a total of 12ha, spread over eight different parcels. Early picked to retain focus and salinity, this is one of a series of impressive wines in 2018, showing praiseworthy mastery of the vintage conditions. Sappy, pithy and stony, this carries its 90% wood very lightly, showing a long, refreshing, sea breeze finish. Drinking Window 2021 – 2028

The Wine Advocate
90-92+ Points

The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots was still quite primary and reserved, exhibiting discrete notes of peach and lemon, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and tangy palate with plenty of chewy structuring extract.
