    September 15, 2020 - Considering the origin, this is surprisingly fruity, low-acidic and tropical in character, providing nice aromas and flavors of flowers, pear, peach, lemon and grass. However, the chalkiness and the minerality are also there. As a whole, this is a very pleasant and delicious Chablis that might be best to be enjoyed soon.

    May 6, 2020 - Nose of lemon and clean cotton, with a touch of honey. Zingy but not harsh acidity. Mid-weighted and lively, with citrus being the dominant fruit flavor. While this is mostly on the light/bright side, it does have a bit of an “oily” finish, with some beeswax/honey coming on late. Decent but not especially memorable.

    April 26, 2020 - The color is golden-yellow. Displaying pleasant aromas and flavors of apricot, peach and minerals, this Chablis is both lushly fruity and fresh at the same time. The wine is not very obviously acidic, but the acids are laying under the fruity surface.

    This is probably not anything that you are used to expecting from a Chablis. However, it is very good, and it is in a very nice spot at the moment.

    February 21, 2020 - Emirates lounge in Dubai. Pale yellow. A solid and easily accessible Chablis featuring the roundness of the 2016 vintage. A touch of sulphur, and acidity providing freshness. Would love to see a bit more tension and minerality but then this is a more general shortcoming of 2016 in Chablis.
