Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier Chablis 2019

From the first time I met this husband and wife winemaking team about a decade ago, I have been a huge fan of their wines. From their Petit "Chablis to their incredible Premier Crus, they produce lovely expressions of Chardonnay that the cool northern Burgundian climate and Kimmeridgian limestone soils provide. The wines are focused and crisp, yet never tart or austere, with lovely green apple and stone fruit notes that are supported by racy acidity, minerality and very little, if any, oak." -Chris Cree, MW

"The wines from this area tend to be ever so slightly more generous on the palate in terms of power and amplitude, but with a clear and distinct line of briny minerality and acidity that unmistakably scream “Chablis”! -Polaner Selections

The estate of Isabelle and Denis Pommier was founded in 1990 when the Pommiers, a young couple at the time, decided to take over two hecrates of their family’s land to produce their own wines. It took them a few years to get it down right, and their first bottled release was in 1994. The estate now spans 16 hectares of vineyards with appellations ranging from Petit Chablis all the way up to thier three Chablis premiers crus of Fourchaume, Cote de Lechet and Troesmes (a sub-parcel in Beauroy).

Since the beginning, there has always been a strong respect for the land and the unique terroirs of the region, and sustainable farming techniques – lutte raisonnée – were used. Over the years, emboldened by the qualitative gains resulting from working more naturally in the vineyards, the Pommiers transitioned to organic viticulture. The red lady bug on their bright yellow labels signifies this commitment. -Polaner Selections
