    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 'Les Clos' is rich, with great finesse on the nose and a long, satisfying finish with complex aromas of fresh nuts and toasted bread.

    Delicious with sushi, sashimi and tuna Carpaccio.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This has already eaten the majority of its wood treatment and while it is still not invisible it does not unduly interfere with the expressive and relatively high-toned nose of dried floral, citrus zest, wet stone and algae hints. As one would reasonably expect from a concentrated vintage like 2009, there is ample power to the mouth coating, rich and dense broad-shouldered flavors that possess a seductive texture from all of the dry extract that arrives with a rush on the balanced and superbly long finish. While this is a bit too ripe to merit being called "classic", it is really quite impressive all the same.

    The 2009 Chablis Les Clos is an expressive wine graced with exquisite inner perfume, layers of sumptuous fruit and an open, inviting personality. The Clos fleshes out nicely on the mid-palate and finish, showing plenty of site and vintage character. This is a terrific effort from Brocard. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

    Full yellow-gold. Expressive aromas of yellow peach, orange and honey, perked up by a note of crushed stone. Supple, suave and deep, in an essentially fruity style but quite fine-grained and seamless. Finishes with a dusty impression of extract and excellent length. This was left on its lees, untouched, for 14 months, like the Bougros.
