    September 18, 2016 - Last bottle. Full, deep yellow. Quite a bit different than a bottle tasted about 6 months ago. Much richer and rounder with orange tinged fruit and a mouth feel that suggests clay as opposed to limestone. With time and air, it gains more iodine, saline, structure, and focus as Dauvissat wines often do, but it never reaches that optimal point of excitement and tension between the components. Fully mature at this point.

    June 7, 2016 - Bummer, 4 bad bottles in this batch, horribly oxidized...

    February 16, 2016 - Full yellow. Wow, all lime on the nose and palate to start. Medium to full bodied with vanillin and some toast. Excellent underlying structure of acidity and saline notes. As it opened and warmed, it became lacier and more precise. After the initial disjointed phase, wonderful wine. No reason to hold at this point.

    February 6, 2016 - Uggg, bummer, over the hill no doubt. The som tried to be apologetic (it was my bottle, he was being nice), but for the glimpses of unctuous truffle-coated ripe white fruit there was too much sherry-like quality, oxidation, dark gold color, funk... One bottle left, gonna pop it asap and pray! Not even a gray market bottle, weird for Dauvissat.

    September 21, 2015 - Single Blind Chablis (Chez John Morris): Fleshy peach fruit, some honey and pie crust, quite dense and mineral, a little flat, could use more acidity? Gets a little alcoholic and spiky as it warms up. Good but shows the problematic side of the ripe 05 vintage character, it would be better if it were a touch less ripe and alcoholic.

    (Vincent Dauvissat (René & Vincent) Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons) Citrus and chalk nose; very nice entry, rich, minerally, gorgeous lemon fruit; medium-plus finish
