Wine Critic Reviews:

A slightly riper but similar nose also offers up an admirable level of Chablis typicity. There is a lovely sense of tension suffusing the somewhat more tightly wound flavors that ooze a discreet minerality on the super-saline, dry and chiseled finish. Impressive quality here and worth investigating.

Same exposition as Montmains, just one more hill over to the southeast. This has a very neat sense of balance with bright ripe peaches and hazelnuts. Very complete with great length. Drink or hold.

(Chablis “La Grande Vallée”- Domaine Patrick Piuze) Since La Grande Vallée made its debut here in the 2014 vintage, this has consistently been my favorite in the Piuze lineup of superb villages level bottlings and the 2017 is no exception. The wine hails from the Left Bank climat of les Pargues that lies just across a small valley from Montmains and Vaillons, and was considered of premier cru level prior to the adoption of the AOC in the late 1930s. The 2017 La Grande Vallée is a lovely bottle, offering up a complex and elegant bouquet of pear, lemon, apple, chalky minerality, just a touch of Vaillons-like paraffin and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely reserved again, with an excellent core of fruit, a bright girdle of acidity, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and zesty finish. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2019-2040)

The 2017 Chablis La Grande Vallée is excellent, wafting from the glass with notes of crisp green apple, lemon oil and almond paste. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and tensile, with an ample, even gourmand attack that's kept in check by juicy, succulent acids. This hails from a parcel within the superior lieu-dit of Les Pargues.
