Community Tasting Notes 5

  • Per-Harald Likes this wine: (90 points)

    November 9, 2014 - Intense, sea mineal, tropical fruit and citrus, surprisingly developed and available already, but the high acid level indicates that the wine will last for many years and evolve to a better score after 2 - 3 more years

    September 28, 2014 - Light, tight, clear and zingy but packed with minerals and depth just fizzing away underneath the surface. A perfect example of tension v time. Wonderful now, sensational in 5.

    Warning: Not for those predisposed to flabby Cali Chards and slabs of oak.

    September 22, 2014 - Tasting @ Fevre in Chablis

    September 14, 2014 - Nose: This was a little tight at first, but it unwound into crushed rocks, oyster shells, lemon zest, pears, and some white fruits. There is good depth to it with a real freshness to it.

    Taste: Light bodied with high acidity. The acidity really emerges with air and is very mouthwatering. Beneath the structure lies crushed rocks, pears, white fruits, green apples, and some gun flint notes.

    Overall: This is tremendously young. There are excellent materials here and I would like to see where this goes with time. Right now, it's much better with food if you are acid averse.

    August 8, 2014 - A decent Chablis 1er Cru; probably needs another year or so.
