Julian's Chablis Offline: Decanted an hour. Quite rounded nose with some mandarin, iodine and a degree of intensity. Really quite proper. By the time the reds have been poured this is starting to open up and show its stuff.proper intensity and length. Mineral, but a degree of complexity beyond this. Lovely. ****1/2
At last, not poxed, proper Chablis. Quite intense and mineral on the nose, the intense oyster shell of youth now more tamed, still present but with some spice and a sense of harmony. Proper GC weight on the attack and a creaminess to the texture on the mineral and quite intense mid-palate leading to an almost painful mineral and citrus grip on the fairly long finish. A sense that there is some nicely integrated oak providing extra weight to it's frame. Not quite the intensity or carry of the best examples, but mature and drinking nicely with proper sense of place. Very enjoyable. The first of my bottles of these - I risked maturity v pox, fingers crossed for the other two. ****
Bought at the winery. Very pale yellow in color. Nose of lemon & wet stone. Not much body. Mostlt lemon & green apple flavors. Nose blossomed with vanilla aromas as wine warmed up with time in the glass. It seemed like the wine would last years longer, but had it lost some of its richness with age?
Surprisingly dark yellow in the glass. Intense and complex bouquet on notes of crushed and roasted walnut, honey, vanilla, and wet stone. As usual not as mineral in flavour profile as the other Chablis Grand Cru. Medium to large bodied with great purity and density, good fresh and clean fruit with wonderful sweetness and a vinalla-tingued aftertaste.
