I visited Vincent at his winery back in November 2018 and subsequently saw him again and retasted his wines in London in January 2019. Vincent makes a village Chablis that is designed for immediate consumption, whilst retaining excellent character. But it’s his premiers crus that I really love. Both the winery and vineyards are on the left bank of the River Serein in a sector that produces especially mineral wines.

"The nose is a lovely, summery-dense thing of Golden Delicious fruit dotted with notes of spice, daffodils and toast (although no wood here, only stainless steel). In London I found a light fennel note. This goes in the mouth rich and dense then, quickly, a very piquant and rather granular minerality kicks in, finally becoming saline. There’s great dense sustain and this fabulous spiced grip. A lovely example." Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
