    July 6, 2019 - Richer, denser nose and more substance on palate than montée de tonnerre drunk alongside. Zesty lemon-lime nose. Delicious, extremely bright, foresty, mineral savour. Extremely long, slow fade is very satisfying, but finish is a bit too sweet. Nose also sweetish as warms and cloys a bit. Needs 5+ years.

Le vin a bien évolué sur une période de 1 heure. Il bénéficierait probablement d'un léger passage en carafe avant d'être servis. Toujours satisfait avec les produits du domaine.

    April 20, 2018 - Onklers Grand Cru Tasting Spring 2018; 4/20/2018-4/22/2018 (Tord): Yellow with a green shear. Yellow fruit, apple core. Developing tremendously with air, and round spice tones appear. Extremely fresh acid. Yellow fruit, freshly cut pineapple. Something tropical. Complex and balanced.

    April 6, 2018 - Notes écrites après plusieurs jours.
    Vin carafé deux heures.
    Nez discret, pomme poire, poussiere de pierre.
    En bouche, le vin se distingue par sa tenue, peut-être en a-t-il perdu un peu en éclat, sur les fruits et la générosité mais il en a gagné en finesse, c'est subtil ce jeux sur l'acidité et les notes tertiaires de noix grillée.
    Tout de même pas à la hauteur des attentes. Un vin maintenant à près de 100$. Préféré le dernier deMoor à la moitié du prix.
    Je garde la dernière bouteille encore un an.

    February 24, 2018 - En 2016 je voyais encore du potentiel de garde pour cette bouteille (4 ans?). Et bien, non (à moins que ça soit propre à cette bouteille mais je n'ai pas décelé de faute), c'est un peu moins bon. La tension est disparue. Cette acidité qui assurait l'équilibre n'y est plus et le vin est un peu plat. C'est toujours très bon et complexe mais c'est une moins bonne expérience. Suite à la dernière bouteille, les attentes étaient hautes...

    June 30, 2017 - Bright yellow. Musky seaweed aromas with ripe citrus as well. Killer concentration and texture-I would never have guessed stainless steel Chablis it was that sappy. Tremendous ripe orange and yellow fruit, great "sucrosité", more finishing soil than minerality or acidity. At peak now. Shockingly good, large scaled Vaudésirs, which usually comes up short amongst the Grand Crus. This only suffers a bit in not having the requisite cut, but it is bona fide Grand Cru Chablis.

    November 21, 2016 - Clear, medium-gold color. Aromas of freshly fallen rain, nectarine, lime zest, white pepper and spices, with good intensity. Pure, bright and rich on the palate- orange zest, lime and melon notes are popping, along with layered mineral and spice depth. Fleshy mid-palate structure, medium-plus integrated acid, silky and fine finishing structure, and a full and complex finish. Great bottle- showing very well.

    October 6, 2016 - After seeing the TN from mmcdds and then some back and forth with him on more issues with other bottles, I took the plunge and opened my last one. Have to say, this is pristine, which must be frustrating to hear for folks who get poxed bottles. This has peaches, stone, green apple, citrus and its pretty gentle so I'm thinking it's in a optimal place. But, no nuttiness, no dark coloring, nothing off. Putting a light chill on this now, will have remainder over dinner later and return with a final thought.....this hung right in over dinner. I'd say this is medium weight, has decent complexity remaining and given the bottle variance that exists, my advice would be to drink these now or take your chances.
