  • My first experience with grand cru Chablis and my first experience with Chablis having any age on it, so I'm not really sure whether I got an "off" bottle or am simply not a fan of aged grand cru. Served out of a 375 shortly after opening at temp somewhere between cellar and fridge. Straw colored, not browning at all. Nose of apples and nuts to me, but my wife (who has a much better olfactory system) called the nose "hydrogen peroxide." Full bodied in the mouth but not the steely, flinty citrus notes I'm used to in younger Chablis and not the buttery, toasty oak of Cali Chard-- just more of the apples and nuts (and hydrogen peroxide). If this is aged grand cru, I don't think I care for it nearly as much as the younger stuff. Got another 2004 in a 750 from a different producer; tempted to open for comparison's sake.

  • Took an hour or so to open up but when it did it was still extremely youthful. Showing a decent bit of wood. Very solid acidity. Very Chablis like. Lemon and salinity. Really nice but could go for another 5-10 years. I've had nothing but youthful bottles of this 04 Preuses and I plan to let my last bottle go the distance.

  • Full yellow. Brothy, saline tones with some citrus. Medium to full bodied. Starts fairly fresh but quickly turns very truffled. Not nearly as exciting or with as much Chablis snap as a bottle earlier this year. Fully mature and on the downhill slide.

    I must say that this held up better in the bottle overnight that I had anticipated. The honeyed truffle aromas shared the stage with orange fruit and chalkiness. Yes, fully mature, but more life than I first thought and actually very good.
