France 2013 - Chablis (Chablis): Tasted at the Domaine. Wow, what a nice. Classic Chablis notes of lemon, lime, stones, saline, minerals and a very light trace of oak. Energetic on the palate with great acidity and a long finish. Most complete and complex wine of this tasting. I’d be happy to drink this now for it’s energy and tension but should age for a decade plus. Outstanding. 93+
La Paulée de New York 2013 (Metropolitan Pavilion, NYC): Max 50% oak; of that, max 5% new oak, typical regimen for their Grand Cru. This was really nice. At first I feared it would be too oaky (the 2011 tasted recently was quite masked). But: nah. This was really nice, and I'd love to drink it again. Gaining in concentration in an elegant way vs previous bottles.
