Subtle lean sherry butterscotch scotch pear petrol nose. White and yellow stone fruit, tart lychee, crisp pear, citrus, saline, mineral, an oxidative note on the palate. Just an all around hint of pox that is mildly distracting, more apparent as the wine warmed. Decanted, less oxidative with time. Enjoyable with a good chill but some complexity is lost. Last of three bottles. Drink up if these bottles are in fact representative.
La Las Dinner: Fantastic chablis with clear minerality and hints of citrus. Held up well to raw bar of shrimp and crab meat. Didn't quite match up to the 2009 Dauvissat Clos we poured next to it, but still a worthy contender.
PopnPour, tasted over 3 hrs -translucent pale gold-green, looks half its age -somewhat reticent fresh reduction sea breeze lemon -med acidity, light weight with almost painfully intense minerality and saline, some lemon but only a shadow of the fruit remains from many years ago, elegant and regal, not a touch of oxidation, still very fresh, very long finish -a very serious wine, epitome of power without weight, was brilliant for its fireworks when younger and will be brilliant as it picks up mature elements, right now just excellent as it sits between those two states
