Vintage notes for 2002 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Vincent Dauvissat
2002 - Chablis
What was a fine year for white burgundy in general turned out exceptional for Chablis. A frost-free spring (a rarity so far north) was followed by a perfect June, a cool summer but a magnificent September of long, sunny days with great luminosity. Grapes were gathered in ideal conditions with a fine match between sugar and acidity. The wines have the 'nervosity' and race so essential for their character and are blessed with a fine concentration. With such all-round qualities this is a vintage to enjoy in both youth and maturity.
