    January 4, 2015 - Chambolles and others at Mike and Cathy's: Served blind to me, this seemed clearly a Grand Cru Chablis, from a riper year. A fresh, marine nose of salt, seashells, chalk and minerals. However, there are other atypical Chablis notes of almond croissant, exotic fruits, mixed nuts and mealiness. Less clearly Chablis on palate. Quite rounded, ripe and rich, with real Grand Cru depth and power. However, although lower acid than many Chablis, there is still sufficient acid here to retain focus (but leading Nick to ask, 'Did they acidify this wine?'). The flavours were peaches and pears, some rock melon, blanched almonds, lemons and minerals. Still quite primary and clenched on mid palate, with a long, dry finish. Premox aside, I don't see this wine making old bones but I would hold for 3-5 years.

    December 29, 2014 - Light yellow towards white; intense, steely flinty nose with some valve rubber; very nice and balanced attack, good body with no leanness, almost rich, hint of exotic fruits; long aftertaste; very nice

    July 3, 2014 - Silvery Sauvignon Blanc colour. Nose is ozone, fresh-chucked oyster shells, a bracing sea breeze, wet pebbles. Palate is wet stones from a brook, very crisp, white apple, precise but slightly overwhelming acidity. Beautifully made. Some length. Fruit stones emerge on the palate after 2+ hours in the glass. Some length. Super...... but I would mistake it blind for a killer Sauvignon Blanc at this stage of its development. Needs at least another 5 years to flesh out. Everyone loved this.
