    February 15, 2020 - Strågul. Meget behagelig duft med gule frukttoner av gule plommer, melon, grapefrukt og varm sitron, varme lett krydrete toner, et streif av flint. Glatt tekstur, lett oljete struktur, herlig og rik frukt med melon, grapefrukt og kanskje kiwi? Nedtonet syre, veldig god balanse og lang, ‘smooth’ ettersmak. En deilig, 15 år gammel chablis. Ikke mye å trekke for her, topp flaske!

    January 28, 2020 - What great value for money. Bought 2 bottles on my ski trip. Apple, lemon, honey and saline backbone. Great mouthfeel. Could charge 2 or 3X I think. I will be on lookout for more.

    January 25, 2020 - Same btl as R&Rler. Light gold color for its age. Both chiseled and yet elegantly mature at the same time. A wonderful saline and mineral driven Chablis with a light dose of herbs and earth. Love this producer for unmatched value for these late release winery btls we stumble onto at Envoyer and a couple other places. Classic! Dauvissat like, on the cheap! 92pts+

    January 25, 2020 - Making the Most of Dinner Without Dad (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Light medium gold color. Drank a glass over 30 minutes plus. This is still fairly bright but showing the complexity and development of age. It has a lovely honeyed character and a nice earthiness to go with ocean minerals and apple. The palate is mineral driven with a good dose of limestone, with apple and more subtle citrus notes, medium bodied, honey, saline, and good persistence. Love this producer.
