Critical Acclaim

VN92 Vinous Aug 2017

"Very ripe aromas of mango and lemon confiture enlivened by flinty minerality and complicated by a sexy oatmeal note. Dense and plush but not overly sweet, with its very ripe orange oil, exotic fruit and spice flavors firmed on the end by an element of crushed stone. Less obviously a hot-vintage style than the Vaucoupin, this wine displays less of the easy sucrosité of most of the other ’15s here, as well as a more serious structure. Really clamps down on the finish." (92 pts.)

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Aug 2017

"The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vosgros was bottled in May 2017, extending its usual maturation period by four months. It has a complex bouquet with flecks of almond and white chocolate complementing the mineral scents. The palate is tight at the beginning, delivering a very controlled line of acidity. The body builds towards the finish, which offers a spicy undertow and plenty of salinity. I envisage this Chablis developing with style and panache, certainly touching grand cru quality." (92 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
