Still holding on.. No signs of premox or even what would be considered normal aging for a 16 year old bottle of Chablis. A slight swirl brings out the minerality we expect, the texture is beautiful and rich without any loss of focus. Could perhaps go another 2-3 years but probably not more
No formal note - just got the end of the bottle. This isn't classic Chablis, but it is good White Burg. It's got some minerality and some lemon, along with deeper notes and some thicker or creamier things going on in the mouth. Definitely some mint and herbal notes along with honey, white flowers and nectar. Maybe a bit of butterscotch and some shells? This had nice breadth and complexity. 16/20.
This bottle was spot-on delicious! Pale yellow, crystal clear. Fresh and vibrant with a little cheese rind on the finish. I was not expecting much having poor experiences with 2000 Fevre Bougros but a nice surprise - a wonderful bottle.
