Drank at dinner with Ed at Fullerton Pier. Appearance is clear, pale intensity, lemon colour. Short legs seen. Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of green pear, stony/flint minerality, steel, and interestingly grass. Youthful. On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium- alcohol, medium- body. Medium flavor intensity, with flavours of green pear, lime, stony minerality, chalk, grass, and a bit of bitterness towards the finish. Medium- finish. Infinitely quaffable. Performs well as a village level Chablis from a less ripe vintage. Much better than a lot of plonky village level Chablis in the market. Very good quality. Drink now while fresh, not for further ageing.
Pale in color, with a pretty, reticent nose of floral and citrus notes. Bright and crisp on the palate. Lots of citrus, pear and kiwi fruit character, along with a fresh acidity. Subtle hints of grass and chalk emerge on the dry finish. Could easily be mistaken for a New World Sauvignon Blanc if tasted blind. A good summertime quaffer, this paired very nicely with our shrimp and scallop stir fry. 50+5+11+15+7=88
