This is the best Chiquet wine in at least two decades. Deg 7/2015, it’s 70-30 CH/PN, the Chardonnay from Aÿ and the PN from Mareuil. An absolutely fabulous aroma! Classic Chiquet Club, i.e. a riot of chalk, like Clos de Goisses with less brawn, and in this vintage with exquisite flowery shimmers; firm yet flowing; chalk and shade-grown tea giving spine; quince and orchid dissolve into a rippling breeze-dancing fruit. A candidate for greatness, especially contemplating the searching finish and its exquisite and fathomless intricacy.
