Monday, October 8, 2012 - My first 2010 Sechet, as I bought a handful of these recently, along with the MdT and Les Clos. I really like Michel, as I don't have to whince when I pay for the wines, as they remain in my view an excellent value. Plus, they don't see any oak so they present a transparency that isn't cloaked up with toasy, marshmallow, vanilla bean and all that other barrel noise. Opened last night.....drinks plumper than the 08 Michel Vaudesir which I poured next to it. I saw the Burghound note on this, and I would agree with the white peach, although there is enough acid, what he calls citrus, again I think a fine descriptor, to keep the wine with some cut. Then a nice spicy note, like a fresh, zippy green apple in the finish, along with minerality and anise. There is a shaing of opulence in the wine too, in the finish, some honey but it's suprpassed by the spicy acidity that carries this wine. Another really nice Michel chablis, for $30 and half of that for Dauvissat Forest and the other undrinkable CA chardonnay heroes.
