    August 6, 2015 - Still young, with significant acid cut and nerve. Floral, citrus, slightly on the lean side. Promising for more years ahead, and surprisingly still young.

    March 25, 2015 - Silky, elegant wine. Stone fruit, minerals. Unctuous butter and vanilla aftertaste. Good balance. Light on its feet. Excellent.

    January 13, 2015 - IWFSC 801 Dinner (BOKA Chicago, IL): Really a clean color and quip unite the departure from the Les Clos. Good flavor, just not much to fill the palate.

    December 25, 2014 - Lovely as ever, holding beautifully. Not a hint of premox in our case so far...

    December 24, 2014 - Lovely wine. Bright and appropriate acidity with a solid core of mouth-watering minerality and a nice, slightly nutty finish. No sign of fading.

    (William Fevre Chablis "Les Preuses") This was a wow wine. Huge nose of green apple, seashells, salt, minerals, lime & sweet green pea. Classic nose. Truly a memorable palate that is among one of the lushest and fattest I have ever encountered in Chablis. Incredible concentration. Really one of the most concentrated white burgs I have ever had. Delineates almost too perfectly on the cascading finish of green apple, sweet cucumber juice and mineral. Massive knockout finish that just stays and sits. Unbelievably young but still not "painfully backwards." What a huge amount of material this is holding in reserve. Can't wait to try this one down the road. Compelling Chablis.
