    July 25, 2016 - Ok but not great, this was soft and had lingering notes of age (slight caramel -- not our thing), easy and fine to drink but not brightness or tension, seemed like citrus for fruit but light and soft... I am trying to drink all my '08 Fevre bottles as they were great young but many premox notes coming in now and mine are performing as if they are aging quickly

    July 17, 2016 - Chablis Dinner with the Oakland Crew (Wood Tavern): Served blind. Acidity there but not too strident - nice balanced wine - somewhat voluptuous for a Chablis but by no means flabby. Conversation at the table turned to age - suspicion was this was the younger wine of the flight. Very good stuff

    June 15, 2016 - got worried when I saw all the premox notes, tried one of my bottles and it was very good, poured into decanter and saw light gold and was worried but this had a nice balance of acidity and age, and certainly wasn't over the hill (to which I am very sensitive) -- no caramel or smoke, rather there was some smooth lemon fruit in the background to go with the minerals and oils
