Analysis of individual appellations and their top-scoring wines coming soon:
Following on from the super-concentrated 2019s and the softer, peachier style of 2018, the word most heard during my recent visit to Chablis was ‘classic’.
While 2020 may not quite have the linear acidity of 2014, there are a lot of similarities with 2017, another classic year. Although 2020 was a very early vintage, it was not a particularly hot one and managed to avoid the dramatic heat spikes of 2018 and 2019.
My high tasting scores suggest that this is a vintage which can be rated at least four stars, with a wide incidence of five-star wines.
