Description

Located in the heart of the town of Chablis, with a very rich history dating back to 1540, Domaine Pinson was among the first winemakers in Chablis to bottle their wines for public sale in 1880 when they also exported their first wine to America. The ‘Frères’ in the name are brothers Laurent and Christophe Pinson. The Domaine today is run by Charlène and her father Laurent Pinson. Charlène started making the wine here in 2008 after finishing a degree in viticulture and winemaking in Beaune and then gaining plenty of experience working in the Rhône Valley.

With a 10% holding of the total Grand Cru ‘Les Clos’, this is a very important wine for the Domaine. The oldest vines are planted in 1962 with an average age of 50 years old vines amongst the 3 plots of Grand Cru ‘Les Clos’ A perfect Southern exposure and very deep Kimmeridgian limestone soils these wines are fermented in 80% stainless steel and 20% new barrels before being aged in 3-4-year-old barrels and bottled in February 2022.

Review

As always this wine has such a sense of being the complete Chablis. Nothing too exuberant, just a bench of thoroughbred fruit grown on ideal limestone. Some little detail here with concentrated sniffing, and the palate is beautiful. A really classy, stylish, long-term Clos in perfect balance. Don’t hesitate. Well-harnessed succulence.
