Medium gold to an extent that was a bit worrisome at open. Nose a tiny bit muted, but lime, some grapefruit, and beach pebbles. Balanced and full palate with grapefruit notes, a wonderful mouthfeel of richness. Drank well with food. A bit less sprightly than I was expecting, so perhaps a bit advanced. If this is representative of the rest in my cellar, time to drink up, but there seems variability from the rest of the notes here.
PnP. Perfect cork, wet about 1/3rd. Pale greenish yellow. Intense nose (after being open for 30 minutes or so) of seashell, lime, -classic Chablis. On the palate this is spherical - nothing sticks out, everything is in balance. With air it grows more intense and the finish keeps elongating. Doesn't have the exotic character Les Clos sometimes exhibits but is superb. One more bottle - when to drink? 5 more years I think.
Christmas-dinner with friends. Medium golden color. Explosive notes of citrus, ripe pear, chalk, seashells, wet stone and a touch of butter. It's medium-full bodied, dense and almost creamy but without any heaviness and has still pretty high acidity that cuts through the richness. Long and complex finish. Constantly changing in the glass, this is a very fascinating Chablis from this top-producer and Cru.
