October 2, 2014 - No signs of premox here. This is fantastic, really focused and vibrant with a core of bright pear and lemon fruit tinged with flowers, stones, and faint spicy and smoky accents. The palate feels remarkably light yet there's great intensity to the flavours, and the balance is excellent with bright acids keeping it very precise.

August 20, 2014 - Whites and Fish @ Tonny's II (Tonny Restaurant, Geylang Lor 3, Singapore): A classic Chablis, and a delicious one to boot – this was really nice. There was just a smidgen of oxidation on the fringes of the wine, and I think a few more years in the bottle would have done it in. We thankfully got to it while it was still fresh and beautiful. On the nose, this could hardly have come from anywhere else in the world, with tons of salty mineral and saline, seashelly notes drifting through white fruited apple flesh and melon aromas, all touched a shade of earthiness. The palate shared that same savoury, almost salty character, along with a lovely weight of fleshy apple flavours edged with just a hint of oxidative sour plum and fig peel notes. There was such an elegant balance to the wine. It had the beguiling softness of a mature white Burgundy, yet it was still long and compelling, with a sticky, juicy depth and gentle Grand Cru strength driving it into a long finish, where a light sweetness in the fruit was undercut by a salty mineral drift and a kiss of lemon zest. Very nice indeed, and drinking just about at peak - this was easily a step or two up from the bottle I had some 6 years back.

June 5, 2014 - Oxidised. A shame because my other bottle opened a few months earlier was very fresh. Bloody white burgundy! Is it worth the risk? How can two bottles kept in the same conditions for 13 years be so different? Aaaaaargh!

March 29, 2014 - Zingy and fresh with a strong mineral acidity. Not much weight or fruit but I guess that after 14 years there isn't going to be a lot of fruit left...
