May 30, 2016 - had at Andy's graduation celebration and was liked by all, Tiffany said this was particularly good, I remember it being rounded (as expected for '09)... this one doesn't appear to be an long timer, I would drink in the next five years
May 26, 2016 - Initially a little funk, but in 15-20 minutes this dissipated to reveal a sharply defined Chablis character with good balance of fruit and minerals. Has some of the big fruit of 2009, but this wine is more classically appealing than the Vaudesir of the same vintage. At peak just now.
April 16, 2016 - Quiet nose, but really great length on the palate.
December 20, 2015 - Very nice wine, with GC intensity and good Chablis minerality, if a bit light, relatively. A residue of '09 fat, which seems to go away overnight, leaving a fairly lean but brothy wine. No regrets, should develop yet a while, imho. Less weight than that '04 Bougrots Bouguerots we drank from magnum at Thanksgiving.
December 16, 2015 - Another delicious btl. Not exactly classic Chablis and leaning more towards Cote Beaune richness, body and fruit. But, who's complaining!!! Love this wine and will try to grab some more if the price is right. Very much like my October btl.
October 14, 2015 - Man, is this delicious grand cru Chablis! The most overt Chablis tonight but lip smacking good with concentration, intensity and overflowing minerality. Superb. I have one left and should grab more if they're still around.
August 22, 2015 - 92-93. Drinking beautifully. Depth, medium concentration, balanced acid, good mouthfeel. Will benefit with age but really like this now.
August 18, 2015 - Chiseled, precise, taut, and brisk with lemon and lime zest, minerals, and oyster shells/saline. As with my last go round with this wine, aromatically there is a somewhat pungent medicinal/feral note lurking on the lower register. A middleweight, but with underlying power, concentration, and intensity.
July 26, 2015 - Very good and given vintage surprisingly mineral, taut, acidic.
July 8, 2015 - Burgers and wines @ home (Milford, CT): As a Chardonnay, this is pretty good, with a nice plump middle and clean, fresh fruit. However, as this is Chablis, it doesn't quite meet its performance parameters. No chalk or brine notes. Not really focused and precise. A bit creamy actually. This got a bit better on the second day, and was quite drinkable, but again, a disappointment given what it should be... Grand Cru Chablis.
