‍‍Background information

  • Vintage 2006: Along with sister-estate Bouchard has state of the art bottling line that excludes oxygen. Goal for free SO2 at bottling is 40 ppm.
  • Vintage 2007: Along with Bouchard, now uses only unbleached corks coated with paraffin only (no silicone). For the petit chablis, village chablis and all 375 ml bottlings regardless of level they are now using a "high quality synthetic cork" (diam)
  • Vintage 2009: Along with sister winery Bouchard, has now eliminated natural cork closures and is using DIAM exclusively.

(26 Jan 2011) Third bottle, as Burghound wrote in August 2010, "it has arrived on the front edge of full maturity" but nowhere near his 94 pts. because it's again barely recognizable as Chablis -- except that's what Chablis tastes like now, I guess.

Measured this one and it was 2 inches. Cork was also a challenge to get out of the bottle. Maybe that paraffin is a good sign of change at the factory? :- ) (edit to add: FWIW, I opened a 2005 Preuses a week after this post and the cork measured 1.875 inches.) [Mikelav]
