Australian-born winemaker Marc Cameron, and estate-owner, François Servin – one of the more flamboyant winegrowers in Chablis – is on a qualitative hot streak; four consecutive vintages of the best juice I've tasted here. With parcels of the oldest vines comprising most of their holdings, Wine Advocate in particular insists, "They deserve a berth in your cellar alongside those prized Raveneaus and Dauvissats." Tasting the line-up, I get it. You will, too. Acidities are perfectly balanced with the fruit, but more importantly, the "Chablis" spirit is here – in buckets. What I seek, foremost – my beloved Kimmeridgian vein of salinity – weaves its way throughout François Servin's selections.


Unwinding in the glass with a generous bouquet of pear, orange oil, fresh pastry and white flowers, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is full-bodied, rich and layered, with an elegantly muscular core of fruit, chalky extract and lively acids, concluding with a penetrating finish. This is quite a demonstrative young Les Clos, yet it's also built to age.
