i agree with others, this was a good wine (i love chablis) but not great (and certainly not headed for outstanding)… good acid ('07-ish), decent minerals but fruit was missing… was looking for that citrus profile and didn't get it… therefore fell slightly flat on night one, a bit better on night two… happy that i only had one bottle of this but have about two cases combined of the '08 and '10 versions!!
Chablis-athon (Chicago, IL): Laser-like focus. Green and sharp, like a razor blade. Perhaps a bit less stuff going on than you'd expect, this is really dominated by that acidity. But then again, loads of acidity is a good thing to have in wine. There are some slight green apple notes towards the finish, but don't count on it.
Poxed! Definitely more advanced than my last bottle…and more sherry than it should be at this age. BUT….to me, not not drinkable! Yes it has nutty sherry, baked apple, dried honey……but it started to drink like a still Krug for me! Still has crisp citrus and crunchy salty minerals….and at times some pretty tasty chalk, florals, green apple, and sea air? Nose is all sherry…but the palate is pleasing….in a Krug style way! Not a total loss…but not really what I want.
pretty reduced initially but started to give way to fresh grass on the nose. Really ripe waxy soft fruit and the palate was silky smooth. There was this long lingering flavor on the wine but it wasn't terribly complex, something lingered but it wasn't anything that livened up the palate
