TN: 2019 Isabelle & Denis Pommier Chablis Les Reinettes (France, Burgundy, Chablis)

I am not sure if I have seen a note on a Pommier Chablis here so I guess the distribution in the US is not all that great. That’s your loss, then, as in my experience this is a fantastic address for a super well made, classic Chablis, even if they do use some oak in their wines. This drinks way better than your average base Chablis, I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

2019 Isabelle & Denis Pommier Chablis Les Reinettes - France, Burgundy, Chablis (11.10.2022)
The nose here is an iodine explosion. Super zesty with some white peach and crushed rock for days. Intensity: through the roof. On the palate it has some texture and weight but at the end of the day this is textbook Chablis first and foremost. Powerfully acidic and nervous, just electric. Loads of tart citrus fruit with very strong minerality. A long mouth-watering finish. My understanding is that Pommier always uses some wood but no one would mistake this for a Côte d’Or wine. Clocks in at only 12.5% ABV but does not feel one bit vegetal or underripe.
