May 19, 2018 - This bottle showed very young. Initially there were salty, sweaty aromas. Taut and young, with tart citrus fruit. Lots of acid and briney, marine notes. This was my last bottle and I wish I had a few more to follow over the next five or ten years.
September 17, 2017 - Ditto last note.
July 19, 2017 - Leaner, lighter, more lemony and angular than I had remembered it being. Not as attractive as when it showed more flesh but still good.
July 11, 2017 - Bright pineapple, hints of citrus, great qpr.
May 28, 2017 - About three years since the last bottle and not much has changed. Maybe there is a little less intensity. Chablis has become our favorite white wine, and this is another example why. Great value, refreshing, and food friendly. We both liked this one.
June 22, 2016 - In a great spot now, but no rush at all to open this. Nice balance of pithy citrus and ocean-y notes, and complexity expected of a 1er cru. Drank over three days, and it was virtually unchanged by the last glass. If I had another bottle, I'd wait a couple of years to open it, to see how different it is from age 6, with no worries at all about it holding up.
June 15, 2016 - Light greenish yellow. Oyster shell, tangerine aromatics that become more floral and herbaceous-quite complex and intriguing. Medium weight, gorgeously sappy. A beacon of citrus, fine acidity, and then a finish that is like rolling small pebbles around in your mouth. This has been consistently excellent and proven to be a great bargain. I think that this bottle was the best so far.
May 8, 2016 - 91-92. Out of a 375. Penetrating Lemon zest on the nose up on open. Strong chalky, mineral streak. Wonderful persistence in the mid-palate, fully energized without being over ripe. Very precise and delineated citrus flavors, with a long lingering finish. Entering its window, with a good long life ahead.
April 14, 2016 - Delicious today. Crisp, lightly acidic, green apple, lemon, slight minerality, slight salinity. For whatever reason this really hit the spot on this 'rooster in a hen house' night.
April 10, 2016 - Vin qui était dans ma cave depuis quelques années. Je l'avais aimé en jeunesse mais ce soir il se livre vraiment sous son véritable jour. Un vin avec des notes légères de citron au nez avec un fond de fleur blanche. C'est en bouche que la magie opère. Une volupté, une longueur et une puissance sur le citron confit, une belle minéralité enrobe le tout. Ce producteur mérite qu'on attende ses vins. 92 sur 100.
