    January 25, 2015 - Day three 1/27/2015: now I am getting it, this is getting better ! Nose 89-90, palate 88-89.

    Day two 1/26/2015: the 87 remains, this isn't getting better. Too bad, because it's an 88-89 nose in my opinion.

    Original note 1/25/2015: Light straw and greenish glass, apple, grapefruit + minerality and distant banana nose, even some white pepper, no particular fruit on the palate, only acidity and minerality, and an ever so slight oaky vanilla touch. If you like such aromatic poverty at this price tag, this is your wine.

    Otherwise not bad, but I get that level with my German whites at half the price, and they deliver more fun. I had planned a showdown Chardonnay <-> Riesling for the summer, and my other bottle of this will participate in this as will the 2012 Garnier et Fils Chablis 1er Cru Montmains. One of the opponents will be the 2014 bottling of the
    2006 Nikolaihof Riesling Federspiel Vom Stein
    because it, too, had oak contact and a similar price as this Chablis.

    I know that this Chablis will take a day or two to show what it has (therefore the 87 rating is not yet final, please return in a few days if you care), but I think I can already tell that this will lose pretty pitifully against the Nikolaihof and my other Rieslings. I can tell you right now that I won't buy again.

    January 18, 2015 - Good but nothing special. A bit one dimensional and needing more minerals and acidity. Not in the class of the AOC Chablis from Pattes Loup or Dauvissat.

    December 5, 2014 - The entry level Chablis from the famous William Fevre stable is light yellow with aromas of flowers, apple, oak. Fresh and crisp on the palate but not very long.

  • Drinking Trees wrote:

    December 1, 2014 - Fresh, clean nose of lime oil, with hints of pineapple, passionfruit, and marzipan. Smooth, medium-bodied palate with mild flavours of mineral water, lemon, passionfruit, lime zest, and oyster.
