PnP. Deep yellow colour. Previous bottles had been heavily perfumed with a relatively exotic profile. This started out quite linear, with Apple/lemon and a round texture which felt like new world semillon. As the wine opened some of the typical perfume showed through (slightly Chassagne-like profile) and notes of oyster shell were obvious. Overall both enjoyable but also a little strange - no rush based on this showing but curious about other bottles. ?***1/2+?
This was very good tonight with an expressive nose of pear, tropical fruit, melon and subtle petrol notes, all of which carried thru to the palate as rich, penetrating, almost honeyed, flavors along with the addition of nutmeg, nori, oyster shell and a mouthwatering acidic core that carried the finish on and on. Really delicious and drinking beautifully.
Quite nice tonight after a couple of hours of air. This has matured quite abit in the year since I last tasted it. Deep amber in color, it has the requisite Chablis oyster shell minerality and acidity, but the fruit has more tropical notes than I was expecting and some petrol notes that seemed abit out of place. While I find this to be very enjoyable, I also find it to be abit atypical for GC Chablis and based on how much this has evolved in the last year, I think I'll drink my last bottle sooner rather than later.
