Gilbert ejer ikke grand Cru marker, men denne er ubetinget på højeste niveau. Man høre næsten sin indre CV Jørgensen messe ‘ skygger af skønhed’.
Fantastisk vin med noter af orangeskal, citron, hvid chokolade, blomster og mineraler og granitskærv. Smagen er kraftig struktureret og uendelig lang.
“Picq’s most serious premier cru, the superb 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vosgros is located in a cold valley and typically receives six additional months of élevage. Wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, lime zest and salty oystershells, it’s medium to full-bodied, intense and concentrated, built around a vivid line of tangy acidity, with a deep, tight-knit core and a tense, chalky finish. It’s an excellent wine in the making and one that will appeal to purists.” 92-94 point Wine Advocate
“The 2017 Chablis Vosgros apparently had a difficult fermentation that was very slow this year and as a consequence it will probably be bottled later, early next year. The bouquet is more muted than the Vaucoupin at the moment partly because of the tardy ferment, so this is difficult to read at the moment. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, very focused and lively, delivering the power and precision towards the grippy finish. It will certainly merit three or four years in bottle, so have a cellar handy. ” 92-94 point Vinous
