    December 23, 2018 - A problem free wine with a light amber color, highly citric acidity, and flavors of winesap apple and comice pear. Finishes long, penetrating, crisp, and refreshing.

    December 19, 2018 - Quite golden in color, darker than other Savoys I’ve had. Lots of flavor going on, almost like a fermented (not distilled) ugni blanc from Cognac. Some lemon, tropicals but low glycerine. Somewhat shocking on the palate. Like one CTer said, not really yummy by itself but would make a very interesting pairing with the right food. Not sure what that would be. I tried it with a rich pasta in wine & sausage dish a la Alsace, but that wasn’t so hot.

    December 19, 2018 - Oxidized and not really drinkable. Cork and bottle looked pristine. Tasted almost sherry-ish. Sure seems like a surprising number of ruined bottles being posted on CT for this wine...

    Opened a second bottle — it was fine.

    Atypique, fermentaire et "pas fini" avec ses aromes de pomme blette, de levure. Il est tendu, minéral mais sans chair, comme anesthésié...

    December 22, 2015 - A striking saffron quality, relatively more tropical than a Chablis drunk beforehand, textured but not rich.
