Chablis Terroir de Chablis Piuze 2018 (750ML)
91+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "As you know we love rock juice at Zachys. Where else can you find quality Premier Cru at under $49, or a rare pinnacle Grand Cru expression under $99? Or how about this truly Terroir-driven gem under $25?! This particular bottling derives from a plot of vines that are on the same north-facing slope as the prestigious Premier Cru, La Forest for an excellent introduction to the region and the 2018 vintage. Expect to find an abundance of green apple, lime, white flowers, brown spice, and flint. There is weight and purity of fruit to accompany the signature zip here and it is another example that there is so much more to explore in the region than Dauvissat, Raveneau, Drion, and Fevre - and it begins with the rising star Patrick Piuze."
91 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Derived from two north-facing parcels near Montmains-to be more specific, a mere 50 meters from lieu-dit ForÃªst-the 2018 Chablis Terroir de Chablis is one of the high points of the range, wafting from the glass with notes of lemon oil, oyster shells, smoke and green apples. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with excellent concentration and a stony, mineral finish. Readers may find it helpful to think of this as a miniature SÃ©chet this year."
92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Terroir de Chablis shows the more exotic, tropical side of the year - qualities that are further amplified by clay-rich soils in this parcel that give the wine its breadth. Creamy and generous, the 2018 will drink well upon release. Dried orchard fruit and flinty notes add character. This distinctive wine really stands out among the village bottlings in the range." 07/19
90 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: "From north-facing plots, adjacent to Vaillons and Forets. Quite exotic with fresh, ripe apricot and mango aromas, leading to a full-ish palate that's really fleshy and packed with flavor. Open and so delicious. Drink now."
93+ Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: “The 2018 Terroir de Chablis bottling does not share that touch of exotica on the nose as found in the la Chapelle, but it is equally precise, deep and nicely mineral-driven. The nose wafts from the glass in a very attractive mix of apple, pear, a fine base of chalk, orange zest and gentle floral tones. On the palate the wine is crisp, full, complex and vibrant, with good mid-palate depth, lovely focus and grip and very good length on the zesty backend.” 11/19, Issue #84
