I’ve been a fan of Jacky Blot for awhile, but this is my first vintage of the Clos Michet. Crisp pomaceous fruit and floral notes emerging right away along with crushed rocks and a subtle reductive, flinty nuance that suggested Burgundy at first glance. The palate is nicely framed by more distinct Chenin-like nerve and intensity, but retains a slightly nutty, toasted brioche quality evident on the nose. I found this to be very nicely balanced despite the youth. It’s precise and focused, but I wouldn’t say austere.

Honey, green apple, white flowers, crushed rocks on the nose. The palate is wonderful : a sheer acidity with a superb texture. A good width with white flowers. Long finish with green apple. Superb

I love acid but this was just a bit too searing and disjointed. Maybe it needs some time to come together

Great acidity but a little buttery from time in oak. Notes of Granny Smith apples and citrus.
