August 200295 Pale color. Brisk, subtle aromas of white grapefruit, green apple, wet stone and mint. Wonderfully ripe and spicy in the mouth, with highly concentrated flavors of citrus fruits, spices and wet stone. In texture, the wine is still reserved and a bit tight, but it already wonderfully perfumed in the mouth and on the kaleidoscopic finish. A very broad, suave wine with great verve and lightness of touch.
June 30, 200294 Classy Chablis that stands as a monument to the '00 vintage. So elegant and refined, powering its way across the palate with a fireball of intensely concentrated lime, kiwi, pineapple, dried herbs, freshly cut grass and spices. Seemingly endless finish. Tempting now, best to cellar. Drink now through 2015.
October 1, 200292 As was the 2001, this is somewhat oakier than the other grands crus and this will appeal more to those who enjoy more than a trace of wood in their Chablis. This is a huge wine, indeed even massive and this could easily be mistaken for a fine Chevalier. At the moment, this lacks the same finesse and precision as I find that the wood blurs somewhat the delineation that the best of this range deliver. To be sure, this is a very fine effort but I would prefer a bit less oak influence as it rounds off the flavors and slightly mutes the minerality; that said, the impressive sap, acid balance and sheer depth of material should permit this to enjoy a very long life.
April 200391 Aromatically demure, the 2000 Chablis Les Clos reveals hints of flinty scents. Lovers of great Chablis will have to be patient with this wine as it is typically (for Les Clos) restrained in its youth. Its deep, concentrated personality displays great concentration, richness, and length. With aeration, notes of crystalline minerals, quartz, earth, resiny minerals, and crisp pears come to the fore. Projected maturity: 2005-2015.
