    December 1, 2021 - First Wednesday Wine Club (Napoli in Bocca, Haberfield): Served Blind.
    Herbs, slight volatility, savoury, slightly meaty notes, touches of wild ferment. Medium plus intensity acidity, lemon, tangy, lots of texture on the mid palate.
    I guessed Loire Chenin

    October 10, 2021 - not sure what to make this: there was a certain astringency on opening that never really disappeared on the first night - strangely, much improved on the second night - more time?

    August 2, 2020 - A bit underwhelmed by this. Well made of course, but on both nose and palate it’s mostly oak and yellow fruit, no real complexity, and only medium+ length. With some effort I find faint hints of saffron, white pepper. Acidity still quite high. Don’t know what more cellaring would mean for this, but I imagine it might achieve more nuance with 2-4 years more.

    November 29, 2019 - Clearly exceeds my expectations ! Remarkable how it has developed since my first bottle in January 2015. Glass light straw. Few but rather swift tears. Low to medium intensity nose compared to my Rieslings. But for a Chablis, it's not bad at all. Green apple, quince (unripe on day 1, but riper by day 4), a little unripe honey melon, lemon, some white pepper and a touch of hay. Lactic notes from wood (if at all) are very toned down, but this is a Chablis.

    Palate dry, acidic and tart, but not austere, light body and and superbly mineral, like licking fresh lemon juice off granite, nutmeg in the length, long and crisp. However there is also a wonderful illusion of sweetness in the development after arrival and before the finish that is fruit driven.

    I think the wine is still very much alive and could easily be on its peak until next year. Of course, I wouldn't know because I had no bottle the past two or three years. But I can say it's better than in 2015.

    August 17, 2019 - 2012 W Fevre Chablis vs 2016 Malat Sex Una Tribus:
    - Direkt vor dem Probieren geöffnet
    - Farbe: beide mit geringer-mittlerer Farbtiefe. Fevre zitronengelb mit leichtem Grünstich. Malat ist weißer. Fast Strohgelb.
    - Geruch: Fevre mit mittlere Intensität. Malat gering. Fevre mit Quitte, Zitrone. Malat eher gelber Apfel und Brioche.
    - Geschmack: Fevre eher niedrige Säure. Eher schlanker Körper. Eher leicht. Zitrone. Grüner Apfel. Mittellanger Abgang.
    - Malat deutlich anders. Etwas Eiche. Noch nicht cremig aber etwas breiter. Fast mittlere Körper. Auch noch Säure. Etwas weniger. Eher gelber Apfel. Mittellanger Abgang.
    - Beide Weine okay aber nicht Champions League. Abgang und Komplexität fehlen. Erwartungsgemäß unterschiedlicher Stil.
