    May 28, 2017 - As with other tasters, this did not blow us away. It was good, but based on previous experiences with this estate, our expectations have been raised. It needed 4-5 hours of time to air, so patience is in order (or give it more bottle age). The somewhat reticent nose revealed notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, and pear, followed by notes of grass, coconut, and candle wax. Nice and expansive in the mouth, but still a bit restrained and astringent, not as long or complex of a finish compared to the 2001 opened 2 years ago.

    March 8, 2017 - From a half bottle. Light gold in colour and way fresher than a pre-moxed bottle of 2009 Pape Clement Blanc :(

    A lot going on here - oyster shell and minerality notes, sauvignon blanc grassiness, some honey and caramel, and a good deal of intensity. This was a very nice wine, but not at the blow me away level. I'd buy it again though.

    December 3, 2016 - 3 years since our last tasting of this wine ( Papies 93) and had 3 very consistent bottles along with 3 oxidised.
    Surprisingly the oak is still present after 12 years! We should have decanted but even without it this was a masterclass of a wine. Bright, fresh still, good ripe fruit, floral. Waxy on the palate, round and lush. Beautiful wine but a worrying issue as 3 of the bottles were oxidised.. 93

    December 3, 2016 - 3 of 6 opened on the day were oxidised. All 6 were stored in BBR from release. Thus bottle variation here.

    November 18, 2016 - Followed EDUB7's recommendation below which yielded a much better wine than upon opening. This became a super alluring wine as it evolved over a couple hours in the glass.

    My only bottle bought at auction. Shame.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) As with last years sample of the 2003 this is quite closed, showing little more than a faint crispness. The palate clearly shows that this is built for the cellar; balanced, elegantly textured, sappy but reserved, vaguely nettly through the midpalate but rounding out with a flourish of flavour on the finish. Potentially very good indeed.
