 Tasted by jzz56 on 7/6/2013 & rated 85 points: Overall Very disapointing probably should be consumed earlier. (477 views)
 Tasted by drunkinitsyouth on 12/14/2010: Feels like this saw a fair bit of time in old wood. Not a lot going on on the nose, needs time to open up? Good minerality. (1170 views)
 Tasted by Fat cat on 12/27/2008 & rated 86 points: A good chablis at an attractive price EUR 14. Mineral with citrus tones and a good depth of flavour. (1330 views)
 Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 3/29/2008 & rated 88 points: light yellow color with a solid nose of lemons and slate. electric acidity, almost mouth-puckering, with a typical flavor proflile of lemon, green apple, crushed stone and minerals. it displays all the classic chablis qualities that i love, but it lacks the refinement of a great chablis... if that makes any sense. still a great buy at $20. grapes come from both sides of the serein river, from 30-year-old vines, all hand-harvested.

 Tasted by Rupert on 11/20/2007: Light, lean and sharp, OK, but not distinctive (1424 views)

An elegant wine with a sharp and fruity flavour. It is supple and gourmand on the palate.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Jon Rimmerman: "2014 is a return to the titillating terroir punch that is only delivered in the 1er and Grand Cru vineyards that dot the slopes and hillsides of Chablis. The 2014 wines in most of Chablis are so reflective and elegantly mineral-drenched that its hard not to glug them straight away (Beaujolais had a mostly similar result in 2014 after 2012/2013 examples that were largely disappointing).

In Chablis, 2014 is the finest vintage since 2010 and it is somewhat of a hybrid of 2004/2007 and 2010. The stone, citrus and limestone amalgam is exactly what we search for in Chablis as the style harkens to a day in the Cote de Beaune proper (1960's - 1980's) when wine was not meant to be consumed the week it was released, battonage was not used by all and new oak was rarely seen.

As more and more in Burgundy are trying to curtail the thickness in their wines (from heavy new wood/malo/stirring) in favor of more transparent and lithe structures (with equal levels of fascinating material and intrigue), it can be said that the material itself must stand the test of time, not the textural impression left by the winemaker. That does not mean all texture is lost - quite the opposite - but the texture is natural and 'of the vintage' not 'of the winemaker'."
