Tasting Notes:

The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is a bit more marked by its wood component than the other wines in the Simonnet-Febvre portfolio, with subtle scents of vanillin and spice inflecting its bouquet of ripe citrus and crisp peach. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad-shouldered and textural, with the most power of all the wines in the range—and the most tight-knit profile too. This will merit a couple of years in the cellar.

Tasting Notes:

Some very exotic fruit with ripe peaches, mangoes and melon, as well as notes of lemons, grapefruit and flinty minerals. The palate has a vibrant sleeve of acidity that creates attractive tension and density. A very powerful wine that needs time. Try from 2022.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Maison & Domaine of Simonnet-Febvre were founded in 1840 by Jean Febvre, a barrel maker by trade from the town of Montbard. In the early days, the house was known for its sparkling Chardonnays from Chablis, known today as Crémants de Bourgogne. Over the years, the Febvres acquired holdings in some of the greatest terroirs in Chablis. Today, the domaine comprises approximately 9 acres, crowned by a 2/3 acre plot in the Grand Cru vineyard of Les Preuses, with 3.5 acres of 1er Cru Mont de Milieu and 4.7 acres of communal Chablis vineyards. In 2003, Simonnet-Febvre was acquired by Maison Louis Latour. Since its purchase, the Latours have completely renovated the winemaking facilities, installing new stainless steel tanks and pneumatic presses. The vineyards have been reworked with the same sustainable vineyard practices utilized in Latour’s 125 acre domain in the Côte d’Or. Maison Louis Latour also hired a talented new winemaker, Jean-Philippe Archambaud.
