A wine of tremendous appeal, the 2017 Chablis Butteaux 1er Cru is fleshy and inviting from the very first taste. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Lemon confit, chamomile, dried flowers, mint and almond all develop in the glass, but it is the wine's creaminess that is most alluring today.

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux is showing very well, offering up lovely aromas of waxy lemon rind, beeswax, ripe apples and oyster shell. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and nicely concentrated, with chewy dry extract, ripe acids and a long, nicely defined finish. This is one 2017 that nods to the 2015 vintage in structure and scale, but it's nicely balanced and will reward some bottle age.

This has peach and some very fresh, sweet lemon aromas here. The palate is round and concentrated with some attractive, gentle grip. This has great shape and depth and is already looking very approachable. Drink over the next five years.
