The history of the Servin name dates as far back as 1654. Nearly every member of the family was involved in wine in some fashion, from coopers to winegrowers. Though our clients are familiar with the Servin name, it is a lesser-known address in Chablis that deserves more recognition. The Blanchot comes from a .92 hectare sustainably farmed parcel with vines averaging 45 years old, only replanted with massale selection. The grapes are hand-harvested, and the signature of the Domaine for this Cuvee is a long elevage on the lees with no oak, which is not usual for grand cru Chablis. Typically an elegant and generous wine that is one of the few grand crus that can be approached earlier. The 2019 is one of the best vintages of Blanchot ever for Servin, and one of their top wines of the vintage with incredible dynamic of intensity and approachability. The Blanchot is an excellent grand cru Chablis that doesn't need years in the cellar to integrate but has the structure to do so and is a gorgeous representation of Domaine Servin that fans of Chablis will love.
Vinous (Neil Martin) 94 points! "The 2019 Chablis Blanchot Grand Cru is slightly deeper in color than the Les Clos when compared side by side. The bouquet is richer and more honeyed – in fact, more 2018 in style – with enticing orange pith and praline scents developing over time. The palate is ripe and much more intense than the Les Clos, the weight of the fruit counterbalanced by the acidity. This is a very fulfilling Blanchot that packs quite a punch and may well drink sooner than the Les Clos."
