Chablis "Le Clos du Château" 2015 - Château de Fleys

Le Clos du Château is the latest cuvée form the Philippon family, made exclusively form vines located around the Château and inside closed walls - which is called a "Clos". This small plots has been managed within the sustainable Agriculture practice - no chemicals, manual harvest - and has been ages for 20% in oak barrels. The result is a slightly more dense structure than the classic Chablis, with a discrete buttery touch, the same aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit (peach) on a mineral background. Quite a surprising but classy Chablis!

89/100 "The 2015 Chablis Clos du Château comes from 40-year-old vines and is raised for 16 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% oak barrels. It has a clean and precise bouquet with a fine bead of acidity and quite a mineral drive, with a touch of shucked oyster shell developing with time. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, citric opening. I appreciate the terseness and tautness of this Chablis; it feels quite persistent on the sappy finish. Very fine."

The classic Chablis of Château de Fleys is a great example from the appellation, showing an elegant nose of white flowers and peach. On the palate, aromas of citrus and pear take over, with a mineral touch and a clean finish. Definitely a good value Chablis, to be discovered!

This Chablis is also coming from the "Mont de Milieu" parcel but is made of from 80 year-old, low-yielding vines. 30% of the wine is aged in oak barrels. As a result it is a fruity, structured Chablis with intense aromas of exotic fruit and a hint of hazelnut. Very, very elegant Chablis which we can only recommend, especially to amateurs of more buttery...
