    September 3, 2014 - Colour limpid lemon, viscous with good legs. A lovely fresh, ripe nose of green apples, lemons, pineapple, rock salt, baking spices, ginger and crushed rocks. I had this Chablis on release and the searing acidity has now settled quite a bit. Now a strong backbone of racy acids, holding the wine together right across the palate. Quite ripe and rich, with malic, citric, mineral and marine flavours, but with some tropical fruit elements (a little pineapple and rock melon). Good volume and power for a 1er with excellent length and a good dry, chalky finish. Probably a bit too rich and exotic fruit flavoured to be classical Chablis, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Drinking well now but years ahead of it, if it survives premox.

    November 4, 2012 - What is not to love about this US$23.40 (on sale) bottle of crisp, taut, pure and clean chablis, with juicy extraction and nice mouthfeel. A wine to turn the ABC crowd back to the chardonnay grape. Curious to see what another few years will do for it.

    June 29, 2012 - consistent with my bottle of a few weeks ago, this is drinking so well right now. Classic lines, lingering, mineral driven finish. Lovely, in a great place right now. Benefits from some airtime. 12,5% abv, drink thru 2018

    June 9, 2012 - PnP. Medium straw color. Stunning nose of candied citrus fruits, quince, river rocks, seashells, croissant and warm spices. Medium+ bodied, layered, with spiced apples, peach pie and minerals on the palate. This got a bit glossed over as most were ready to jump into the reds, but I took my time with it, savoring it through to the last drop. highly recommended, 12,5% abv, drink thru 2018, A-/A

    June 2, 2012 - 12,5% d'alcool, 100% Chardonnay
    Oeil : paille soutenue, forte viscosité en parois
    Nez : projection d'intensité 3+/10, frais, citron confit, lime fraîche, touche vanille légère, touche de miel, fleurs blanches, salin, minéral, petit quelque chose qui rappelle le trèfle et la luzerne, très attirant...
    Bouche : sec, ample à gras, belle matière, attaque franche et caressante, petit creux en milieu de bouche, acidité rafraîchissante+, juste ce qu'il faut d'amertume, prise minérale moyenne+, persistance moyenne, rétro fruitée, florale, zestée, minérale, saline, boisée
    Conclusion : très bel équilibre, dans un registre où l'élégance prime, excellent compagnon de repas, mais aussi un délice in solo. 89-91
