We must have had a spectacular version of this; a more full-bodied example with slight creaminess that enhanced its flinty qualities.

The only flaw is a slightly watery unstructured mouthfeel.

Super interesting wine from the Canary Islands, aromatic, herbal, a little thin, still too young--we're going age our next bottle a little before opening it.

On the fulsome, unstructured side, very pleasant but not a classic Chablis

What a nice way to pick up our "spirits" on our small Thanksgiving dinner during Covid! A great wine, brooding, rich with dark chocolate aromas, perfectly balanced, stunning tannins.

Slight brett on the nose with walnut aromas, racy, smoky, berries.

Fabulous! Deep garnet color. Currants, anise and mushroom on the nose with hints of dark earth and violet candy. Thick mouthfeel, soft arc that takes its time, lingering finish with raspberry (ends on higher note than the nose).

Excellent, opulent and toasty--almost in the style of a grand cru.

Nose of anise, violet candy, blueberry. Medium body, limpid arc. Crystaline finish of honey and herbs.

Very rich, not a traditional Chablis, but a nice white Burgundy, especially for this price point. This is our third bottle over about 3 years, and we've gone up on the rating each time, so looks like this is worth laying down for a bit.

On the plus side, after 8 years this still tastes like a simple vibrant Morgon. On the minus side, nothing seems to have happened. Needs even more aging? Seems a little hard to believe, but certainly wasn't falling apart.

Remarkably robust after 9 years, with vibrant fruit and a light touch.
