2014 Chablis Grand Cru, Chardonnay, Burgundy.

Simonnet-Febvre's Les Clos vineyard is the vastest Grand Cru and is located on a rounded South/ South-West orientated hilltop. The soils' depth results in a consistent and long to develop wine. The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos of Simonnet-Febvre is only composed of Chardonnay which vines are 35-40 years old on average.

2014 is an excellent year for Burgundy white wines. The purity and freshness of this vintage are expressed in the 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos. Both frank and ample, it offers citrusy and vanilla notes. The wine reveals a good balance and its finish is barely salty. The chiselled and precise character of this vintage wine foreshadows a good ageing potential

Parker : 88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos, which is aged 50% in barrel and 50% in stainless steel for 18 months, has an airy and detailed bouquet with apple blossom and fresh pear scents, unfurling nicely in the glass though not the most intense Les Clos this vintage. The palate is well balanced with sappy red apple and pear notes, fine mineralité, but needing to show a little more cohesion and detail on the intense finish.
