    July 30, 2022 - Pretty intense nose of yellow apples, chalk, hazelnuts, grilled lemon and butter. Medium plus mouthfeel, high acidity, nice chalky minerality, very long.
    Perfect bottle, beautifully showing, drinks amazingly well now!

    July 14, 2019 - Burgundies for Bastille Day (Chicago, IL): This bottle is pretty in line with the last time I tasted this wine. If anything, this is a little fleshier and broader than I remember, and there's a sense of maturity here. That green tinge that I remember on the last bottle is here as well, and it may well be that the green meanies are not starting to pop up in the white wines.

    May 18, 2019 - Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Spiaggia - Chicago IL): Small glass, brief note. Maturing gracefully with a nice combination of ripe and bitter apple character. I’d err on the side of drinking these up.

    May 18, 2019 - HDH Burgundy Auction; 5/17/2019-5/18/2019 (Chicago, IL): This is as classic as it gets; fairly open, with some good mineral and smoke character. The back end of the palate does seem to have a little more of that green thing that I'm not a huge fan of (the snap pea string thing). Lovely minerality, with some good leanness.

    February 14, 2019 - Served in a generic stem. Root / 1006 hPa.

    Color here is yellow with a straw rim. Showing normal signs of age. Nose is ready for business out of the gate with pears, green apple skin, lemons. I find Dauvissat's Vaillons to lean more fruit forward and rich, and while those qualities still take stage, the pronounced salinity and iodine quality the comes with age is really showing well now. A really intriguing chamomile quality comes through with some air as well. Palate is very focused, with kombu like salinity and mushroom notes, lemon/lime, apples, and a touch of hazelnut. With air, things really tighten up and display fantastic clay minerality. Lovely acidity and length. This particular bottle was in a fantastic spot, showing a lot of the secondary Chablis aromatics and flavors I love, but still with a lot of youthful angularity. Properly stored bottles like this have a long life ahead, but this in an excellent spot for drinking now.

    (Vincent Dauvissat (René & Vincent) Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons) Vanilla and lime on nose, that opens to a lovely sea scented nose after 20 minutes or so; delicious, focused, refined, a little austere yet, citrus and mineral palate; medium finish
