Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2010
Source : Stephen Tanzer - 09/06/2011
91/100. (still in tank; this spent its first six months of elevage in 20% used barrels): Full medium yellow. Very ripe aromas of lemon oil, herbs, lichee and mossy underbrush; a distinctly old-style nose with considerable sex appeal. Pure and intense in the mouth, with complex flavors of citrus fruits, yellow stone fruits and mint joined on the back by earthier porcini and truffle notes and a hint of green pepper. This rather powerful wine will need time to harmonize its disparate components. Finishes glyceral and long, with surprising acid cut. Very interesting if idiosyncratic Preuses.
