    August 14, 2016 - fantastic bottle bright acidity nothing over ripe about this vintage. Lemony mineral and a chalky sea shell quality

    May 8, 2016 - No premox, this had a great showing last night. Not a wine of specific fruit descriptors, this won the day over with a rich, mineral attack that avoided being exotic (like a few 06's I've had) but pressed on with a caressing mid palate presence. The momentum continues the more sips one takes, sea breeze and subtle spearmint traits appear, and the clear pedigree of the Preuses is obvious on the very long finish. My best guess is this at peak, but should hold at least 5 years, maybe 10 if the bottle is sound.

    April 22, 2016 - Good to get a perfect wine. Not 100pt but in great condition, light color, nicely honeyed with viscosity lingering for a long finish. Crisp with lemon notes. Just super.

    April 20, 2016 - Beautiful wine. Layers of complexity and bracing acidity. Apple and almonds with a long lingering vibrant finish. Hard to put it down.

    April 12, 2016 - like the majority of the '04 and '05 Les Preuses and Les Clos I've had over the past 5 years, this was tired, lacking freshness and depth of flavor. Fevre was one of my favorite producers for a number of years, but their severe premox issues has been a source of great irritation. Ceased buying with 2008 vintage.
