2017 Patrick Piuze Chablis Les Sechets Premier Cru
Piuze’s “Les Séchets” is beautifully built, with a dense, mineral-packed structure of acidity. Aromas are classic Chablis: fresh cut pear, lime, Meyer lemon blossom, and wet stones. This wine's core of rocky acidity promises a long life in the cellar for anyone with the patience to not enjoy it immediately with fresh oysters.
A new cuvée, from 56-year-old vines whose grapes Piuze has long coveted, the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Séchet offers up lovely aromas of lemon oil, blanched almonds, dried white flowers and oystershell. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, saltine and tangy, with bright acids, excellent concentration and a striking sense of completeness. With its inaugural vintage, the Séchet is already making a strong claim to rank among Piuze's best cuvées. – 94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
