Intense lemony colour with a green streak
Citrus, white flowers and a hint of peaches on the nose
Medium-high acidity
Honeyed notes on the palate and a long aftertaste

Melon and pineapple on the nose. Quite big and broad on the palate, a touch oaky, roast pineapple with a squeeze of lime, long aftertaste.

Very complex and long, and needs time to open up. Grapefruit pith, preserves lemons and herbs on the palate. Quite substantial and definitely better with food.
Rosé

Very nice, complex, more pronounced acidity than the previous vintages, which makes it more refreshing.

Rounded out a bit although still very dry. In a good spot now. Went well with asian style beef.

Lovely bottle - very balanced and elegant, blackcurrant fruit with delicate tannins. Not overly powerful and moderate alcohol level. Great with food.

Nice on opening and went well with lamb saddle but became thin with more air and after dinner

Very precise and mineral - a very good bottle. Lemony and not a hint of oxidation. One of the better bottles from our case of six.

Really glorious - barely perceptible sweetness, featherlight, complex, long and in great balance. Glad to have another five of these.

Velvety, blueberries and blackberries on the palate, smooth, balanced and very enjoyable to drink now even if perhaps not the most complex.

Decanted for 2-3 hours. Still fairly youthful, no tertiary notes yet, went well with a steak.

Surprisingly approachable - I expected it to be quite foursquare. In a nice phase with fruit still being there but with secondary notes coming through. Tannins very much there so better with food.

Lovely, needs to warm up, white flowers and roasted pineapple - rich but balanced and doesn't feel over the top. Served with a home roasted ham glazed in orange marmalade and it complimented it beautifully.

From a magnum. A touch of heat and burly tannins on day 1, although a bit better with food. Smoother and much more enjoyable on day 2.

Exuberant and extremely attractive. Just a fabulous wine - wish I had more to follow its evolution

Evolved a lot since the last bottle we’ve had, in a positive way. Apricoty notes, lovely colour and much more balanced and integrated.

Fresh as a daisy and lovely - Chablis as it should be

Lovely - pity it's the last bottle. Greenish tint to it, lemony and fresh. Shows complexity and very long.

Very nice, we didn't decant but opened the bottle a couple of hours ahead of dinner. Tannins still present but not excessive.

Was not sure what to expect but really enjoyed it. The key seems to be its food pairing - with grilled mackerel in smoked paprika sauce and red peppers it went really well, but not one to sip by itself.

Very pale yellow colour. Light, steely and very dry. Will be curious to see how it evolves.

Decanted and last glass was the best - perhaps a bit young to drink still

Really good, improved compared to how I remember it from en primeur tastings. Fresh and balanced, no excess heaviness of some white Rhone wines, very enjoyable.

Still quite tight, would perhaps benefit from decanting. Smoky, very good.

Greenish yellow, still very youthful despite being over 10 years old. Herby and citrusy. Quite pronounced acidity - good with food but maybe not on its own.

Expected this to be too young but this showed very well. Smokey, with ripe yellow fruit, lip-smacking. Shame I only had one bottle.

Seemed ready to drink, haunting perfume of cherries and roses, not oaky

Seemed a bit tannic on opening so we decanted it. However the structure somehow fell apart after an hour or so in the decanter so on balance we preferred it before decanting. Mellow, balanced, rich.

Plush but a bit simple on the finish. Perhaps we drank it too early.

Rich, elegant and hedonistic, reminiscent of tropical fruit and sunshine. Pleased with this purchase.

A bit effervescent even after a Fourrier shake and perhaps not the most impressive Fourrier's vintage at the moment, but keeps improving in the glass

Very pleasant, starting to show tertiary aromas and flavours. In a good place to drink now. Mildly spicy with clove, cinnamon and prune flavours but not over the top.

Quite tannic still, no signs of secondary development. Cherries and red plums on the palate, quite intense and powerful, but no excess sweetness. Somewhat similar to nebbiolo stylistically.

Lovely, very filigree and delicate, dances on the palate.

Not sure about this. It does have the Chablis minerality but the fruit seemed on the riper/tropical side. A bit muted overall.

Coravined a glass. More intensity compared to Bourgogne of the same vintage. Elegant and lifted, with tannins in the background.

Lovely for its level and showed much better than the previous bottle. Lifted and elegant, great to drink now.

Medium-bodied, not oaky, lifted, blackberries and black currant leaf on the nose and palate, drinking well now

Pleasant but missing some seductiveness probably due to the vintage, a bit thin.
