    July 9, 2016 - Pale lemon-green in color, with developing aromas of lemon, lime, green apple and pear. Fresh flavors of aforementioned fruit are set upon a distinct mineral foundation surrounded by wisps of sprindrift and warm toast. Voluminous and richly textured; abundant fruit is deftly balanced by bracing acidity present that leads to a generous saline finish. Delicious.

    May 29, 2016 - Nice Chablis nose with lemon and green apple. Medium body, with searing acidity and a crushed rocks, lemon and oyster shells. Slightly tart finish. This never disappoints.

    May 13, 2016 - Oeil jaune pâle;
    Nez citronné, très salin & "crayeux". Légère touche crémeuse & fruité à chaire blanche subtil. Légèrement florale. Semble fermé.
    Bouche est vive, sur le citron & les notes salines du nez. Longiligne & frais. P-ê que l'acidité est trop présente a mon goût. Longueur est bonne, finale légèrement oxydative. En un bloc & +/- agréable pour le moment.

    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.
