    November 29, 2015 - Je crois à la bouteille défectueuse car tout est « off » - des amers proéminents, un arrière-goût pâteux en finale… Le lendemain, il demeure bizarre mais s’est amélioré - la carafe n’aide pas, la clef du vin un peu. Il y a du soufre mais c’est plus que ça: bouteille défectueuse VS phase adolescente du vin?

    October 9, 2015 - Pale greenish yellow. Nose of lime zest, crushed rock, and seabreeze. Impressive depth and strength of minerality, with saline notes and lively acidity. This is an intense wine, a little reduced and in need of more time. Drink starting 2020.

    September 17, 2015 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -translucent pale yellow-green
    -reduction funk and some lemony sea breeze
    -med acidity, med- weight, intensely mineral sappy bitter lemon touch of creaminess, good length
    -picks up cut and focus with air, drinking very well now for those who enjoy the vigor of young Chablis

    June 9, 2015 - I think this is early in its evolution but plenty of potential. Right now, dominated by crushed powdery rock and lemony citrus. I'll wait a year or 3 to open the next btl. Paid $39 which is a great price, these days, for a Fevre MDT. (Right now) it's not drinking up to what I paid for it and I can likely find something for $25 that drinks as well .... at this point.

    May 11, 2015 - Pale lemon yellow. Aromas of flint, stone fruit, citrus fruit, green apple and minerality. The wine is dry with high acidity, medium (+) alcohol and a medium (+) body. The main difference that I used to distinguish this Chardonnay from a Alsace Riesling is the notes of lees steering.
