    May 13, 2016 - Brought to a dinner before a show. Shared with friends. Drinking wonderfully with all the zest, sea spray, crushed rocks, lemon and grapefruit one could want. A little rounder than a '10 Fevre Cotes Bougerots served right before this.

    April 11, 2016 - PNP rendered a crystalline yellow in the stem. Moderate nose of seashell, grapefruit pith, white lily, and lemon. Very slight but pleasant oxidation. The palate was atypical Chablis as it rendered rich grapefruit, chamomile, and lemon zest. Drank more like a Puligny Pucelles than a GC Chablis in that the characteristic minerality, oyster shell, and stone nuance was more to the background. A nice drink to pair with a simple broiled perch with asparagus.

    February 20, 2016 - Just popped and poured a glass. Light straw colored. Nose of lilacs (?), flowery, lanolin. Cutting minerality; like a mouthful of cold gravel - but in a good way! Decent length and rounded mouthfeel. Not a lot of butter. Very steely. Just starting to open up after 10 min in the glass. I think this will get only better as it opens up. Planning to have this with some Japanese snow crab legs. Should go well. Thoughts of crusty bread and good butter, with a platter of oysters. Alas.

    December 21, 2015 - Ensemble sur les citrons et les coquillages. Intensité et puissance hors norme. Un brin austère. Longue finale sur les coquillages. Un vin qui aura besoin de 3-5 ans de repos avant d’être à point. Un autre Clos de Fèvre qui me laisse sur ma faim, bien qu’objectivement très grand. 92-93+

    July 18, 2015 - Orchard fruit with hints of cyclamen and champaca flowers enrich the cultivated qualities to this value wine. Lemon, lime, pear, butter, almond flavors along with the complex and wanting to sniff more nose envelopes the senses with a unified impression of a complete and balanced wine. Elevated the wild caught fresh shrimp cocktail and enhanced and balanced the lobster tails dipped in butter.
