January 4, 2017 - A year since I opened the last one, and not much has changed. This continues to be an unexciting wine - the nose being so-so at best and the palate, pretty much the same. However, when it was paired to some scallops with an Alton Brown recipe (sauce) that called for soy, garlic, chopped green onions, etc., this wine deftly picked apart all the flavors in the dish and turned them up a few notches. So, on its own, meh, with the right food, good>very good. Not sure I'd sit on these if I had any more - given my experiences with the three I've opened since release.
Audozed 3 hours, served at 53F, non-blind.
January 1, 2017 - Pleasant creamy minerality.
December 18, 2016 - Darker golden color, wet leaves nose, dead palate: that's amoré...or rather, PREMOX. I wish Burgundy could figure out a solution to this ongoing dilemma because it's exceedingly frustrating--especially when it's an aged bottle that is difficult/impossible to replace with the same provenance. Buy from reputable vendors that will rectify the flawed bottle, folks.
September 29, 2016 - Excellent. Perfectly balanced. I love the interplay of the creamy lees with the zippy citrus, green apple, and salinity. The finish is exceptionally intense and long.
September 18, 2016 - Helles Strohgelb, goldene Reflexe. Herbe Würze in der Nase, dahinter Honigmelone, Zitruszesten, Blüten, deutliche Hefenoten, zartes aber präsentes Holz. Am Gaumen stoffig, mineralisch, kernig, wieder stark hefig und im Abgang salzig und etwas vom Holz geprägt, zartes Bitterl, guter Stoff und weiteres Potenzial.
June 16, 2016 - This was nice right out of the bottle, chilled. But from the second day on, not so interesting. I speculate that it's still way young, in GC Chablis terms, and should be drunk immediately or put away for 5-6 years. The alternative is that it's not very special wine. Not sure which.
June 13, 2016 - very good again, typical '09 profile... slightly more rounded and rich for a 7 year old Fevre Preuses, drink in the next 3-5 years
June 8, 2016 - I love this wine. Pretty lemon and minerals with lots of creamy lees and restrained oak. Exudes class.
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.
