    July 12, 2016 - Great bottle of wine. Nice nose, GREAT seashore mouth, tangy citrusy length. Hard not to love.

    June 15, 2016 - Sea spray and fruit just explode from the glass, then nice medium intensity and depth, fabulous minerality, nice saline, notes of lemon/lime acidity, perfect balance, youthful and far from peak, but a joy to drink now. Classic, classic Chablis. Diam cork worked beautifully on this bottle.

    May 13, 2016 - This was nice, but too young. Had an amalgam cork, showed zero signs of premox. Fairly classic Chablis in the making here, with grass, stones, good fruit and balance, but a bit dull for current drinking.

    March 29, 2016 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -translucent med gold/green
    -somewhat restrained, slight reduction, faint citrus seawater
    -med+ acidity, intensely sappy now more mineral than fruit which has baked green apple and citrus influence with slight tropical note, moderately long finish, no oxidative elements
    -no prem-ox, still powerful, losing its youthful edge but not yet developing much for mature elements

    October 11, 2015 - Fevre is back on its game again and this is sweet spot for them. Drinks more like a grand cru. Precise, classic with vibrant minerality and citrus. 92+
