    November 9, 2014 - Really nice tonight. I think this wine was best upon release. More fireworks at that time. It has matured into something more muted but perhaps more complex and subtle. An excellent wine.

    September 19, 2014 - Chicago: wine, food, friends...cigars!; 9/17/2014-9/20/2014 (Blackbird, Les Nomades, Naha, with lunch at Shaw's Crab House): 7-8 years too soon. Light-medium bodied, medium straw color. Equal parts saline, chalk and minerals on a canvas of delicate orchard fruits. Very delicate, and charming at times, but way too soon. A textbook definition of structure and purity. Lovely. 12,5% abv, recommended

    Slow-O 5 hours, served non-blind.

    August 19, 2014 - (Mostly) Grand Cru Chablis Dinner (GT Fish & Oyster - Chicago IL): A big step up from the 2008 Bougros Cote de Bouguerots also tasted tonight, this was lean and energetic to start, but then powerful and concentrated from middle to end. Great balance.

    August 11, 2014 - This is a wine one can get fired up over. A tiny fraction less thrilling than the last bottle, but amazing finesse and length and imperceptible oak.

    June 28, 2014 - My first bottle of the '08 les Clos. A richly flavored Chablis: we had lamb kofta, not normally a dish you pair with white wine, but it worked. Rich mouthfeel with substantial acidity lending structure. The nose runs to white fruits, lime, mineral dust, and the flavor profile matches.
