    June 10, 2016 - A lost Friday afternoon gathering – Burgundy, Piedmont, Riesling, Champ and Sautenres (The Grill Room at Rosewood DC): Sourced from Europe. My initial impression is slightly corked. Amy thinks the wine doesn’t want to be opened. Shy nose displaying yellow fruit, apple, lemon curd, smoke, honey and mineral. Quite concentrated, dense and deeply toned fruit, slightly lacking acidity and medium finish. I would like to try another bottle soon. Hoping to provide a nice comparison to the Valmur but not so this time.

    May 3, 2016 - Deep yellow. Pear, stone fruit, and some more typical Chablis salinity. Broad, rich, low acidity, really great feel. Impressive in its own right, but this is not a wine for purists who crave acidity above all else.

    March 17, 2016 - Ripe and powerful, still slightly backward. Great mineral and acid structural elements. Concentration foreshadows this wine's future, and there were glimmers of its full potential,this wine is still needing more time in the cellar. Consistent with another bottle from last year.

    January 25, 2016 - chalk, honey topnotes, very mineral on the nose. The mouth was very long and expansive, really great wine, punches above its level and drinking beautifully now in bottle, won't fade in the next 4 years

    October 23, 2015 - Yellow. Waxy, hazelnut aromatics. Full and lush for Chablis. More pear than citrus, vanilla bean. As it opened, a brief attempt to become Chablis with some salinity, but as with other bottles, easy to mistake for a Cote de Beaune wine. Vintage>Raveneau>Chablis. I have had a hard time warming to this.
