Chablis 2018
25 February 2020

The 2018 story is much the same as it is in the Cote d'Or though if anything the season was even drier in Chablis. A warm, drought season culminated in an early September harvest. Despite berries being small, there were many of them and the crop was potentially a big one. Producers were concerned about hydric stress but it appears that deep roots and a wet winter helped see vines through eventually. What was obvious was the quality of the fruit - there was no triage or deselections to do. Quality-orientated producers who limited yields to no more than 60-70 hl/ha made ripe, charming, fresh and fruity wines with good concentration. Another key factor to the vintage was mobilising as quickly as possible. Picking at the right moment and rapidly so as to avoid allowing the fruit overripen. 2018 is a highly pleasurable vintage with no shortage of Chablisien character and clear differences between terroirs. The wines are open-knit, fragrant and juicy. Hugely enjoyable to drink now and balanced enough to age a few years, though not for as long as the clearly more structured 2017s. However not a year (if ever there is!) to buy from factories and cooperatives where excessive yields resulted in dilute and green wines.

Please note the Moreau-Naudet wines are not ready and will be released once bottled in the early summer of 2020. These and the 2018s 1ers Crus of Domaine Pattes Loups will be the subject of a second release.
