Pinson Chablis 2021
The 2021 vintage in Chablis is one destined to excite lovers of traditional Chablis, with its clean, fresh and slightly leaner structure – a real blast from the past. Pinson is an increasingly impressive emerging producer, even though they have been around since 1880, offering some excellent value. Their vines have considerable age and the wines are made in 100% stainless steel. This fine example is deep yellow in colour. Tight and minerally with a hint of citrus, spices, nuts and florals, notably white flowers. Taut in style and really exhibiting the vintage lineage (if you prefer the bigger, more generous style, try their 2020). With crunchy acidity, there is good focus here with decent length. Drink now or over the next three to four years. If you want to see what a traditional Chablis looks like, this is for you.
