Product Description

“Pale yellow-green. Aromas of pink grapefruit and iodiney minerality, lifted by a peppery topnote. Creamy, tactile and large-scaled, showing superb energy to its mineral, mint and spice flavors. Began a bit disjointed but harmonized nicely and opened in the glass. Finishes saline, chewy and very long. Billaud compares this wine in style to a Montée de Tonnerre.” Vinous 92-94 Points

“Like the Sécher 2015, the fruit is quite exotic but here there is more immediate minerality. A gorgeous steely tension on the palate, and a slightly nutty quality after a year in bottle. Already hinting at Chablis’ longevity and potential complexity but more to come.” Jancis Robinson 17.5 Points

“The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Sechet has a very pure bouquet, one of the best from the domaine this year, with gorgeous white peach, fresh pear and gooseberry combined with subtle white flower scents that emerge with time in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. Tensile and saline, it closes in towards the finish, offloads some of the weight you might have expected to obtain more nervosité and mineralité. This discrete Chablis will blossom as its matures.” Wine Advocate 92 Points
