    July 27, 2016 - Took a few hours to get going. Really nice showing. Was much, much more enjoyable with a slight chill.

    July 17, 2016 - Chablis Dinner with the Oakland Crew (Wood Tavern): Second bottle of this at the same dinner! Different from the last, much more in balance and pleasurable. My sense is that that was more to do with the wine and food arriving at that time than with the qualities of the wine itself (this was born out when I tried 2 glasses side by side - i thought I could tell the difference but certainly not as pronounced as the initial impressions had been).

    July 17, 2016 - Chablis Dinner with the Oakland Crew (Wood Tavern): Served blind. Again - a wine to be admired more than enjoyed at this stage - tightly curled acidity - somewhat exhilarating but hard to keep up with. Clearly a very fine wine but more than a glass would be hard to drink - seems very young.

    Note same wine was served later that evening to different reaction - a combination I suspect of the food served and other wine in the flight as much as any differences between the bottles...

    July 16, 2016 - A melange of stone fruit, citrus, saline, and sea shell minerality; For Preuses, this is unusually reserved and backward, still young and barely evolved. This bottle needed another decade.

    July 15, 2016 - Pop and pour, consumed over next two hours. Beautiful, seamless, complex, harmonic, wonderful balance, lovely expanding finish. Continues to develop positively. This was an exquisite bottle of Chablis.
