Chablis 2019: Full vintage report and top-scoring wines

Andy Howard MW reports on the low-yielding Chablis 2019 vintage finding it delivered highly-concentrated and complex wines with quality on show across all tiers and, while some are offering early drinking pleasure, others have long ageing potential.

Summing up 2019, Louis Moreau, president of the Chablis Commission of the Burgundy wine board (BIVB), said ‘we have been able to produce a top-quality vintage’.

After recently tasting 250 samples in London, my take is that 2019 is a fine year for Chablis, and that lovers of the wines emanating from this cool northern outpost of Burgundy, should buy with confidence.

In broad terms, it can be viewed as a ‘half-way house’ between the higher acidity levels seen in 2017, and the ripe, rounded, less acidic 2018s.
