    August 27, 2017 - Robe : brillante, translucide et de teinte verdâtre avec des nuances argentées.

    Nez : intense, beaucoup de citron et de pêche blanche, un peu de fruits exotiques (ananas), de même qu'une touche épicée et florale. Très aromatique, ce vin n'est pas du tout fermé!

    Bouche : équilibrée, acidité présente, mais pas trop élevée, une certaine richesse (vanille, miel), mais avec aussi beaucoup d'élégance grâce au côté minéral assez développé que l'on retrouve dans ce Premier cru. La finale est superbe, multidimensionnelle, longue et empreinte d'une belle fraîcheur.

    Un Premier cru qui côtoie les Grands!

    July 27, 2017 - Rather sulphury and sharp - really not that nice.

    Update: left the bottle overnight. Better now but acidity is overwhelming and there is minimal finish discernable through that acidity. Probably worth leaving another couple of years in the hope acidity will diminish and fruit won't. After having half a glass I have poured the rest away.

    July 3, 2017 - Very nice. Flinty, oyster shell, salinity, steely, refreshing and crisp. Everything I want in a Chablis. I grabbed this on a whim and I am happy to see I have a few more.

    June 15, 2017 - In a nice place right now...slightly honeyed yet at the same time steely/dry with lively minerality. Medium to long finish with a crisp, full mouth feel. It's nice to have an older vintage to savor...they hold up so well. It's hard to hang on to them, but patience brings its rewards. Perfect compliment to Penne with Gorgonzola Sauce.

    April 16, 2017 - Faint notes of stone fruit try to sneak in on the saline and strong notes of minerality. A surprising touch of oak arrives on the finish. This is a an excellent premier cru Chablis.
