    May 8, 2021 - Really lovely, drinking well now with a quick decant. Waves of sea air, oysters, and chalky-energy. A little hollow in the middle, it's not a blockbuster and Hints of oak in the background. Bright and Lively. A real good match with homemade butter chicken. Great value, all things considered.

    October 11, 2020 - Recommended this by a friend.
    Opened and poured.
    Pale lemony-gold colour.
    Flinty nose with a touch of struck match - no fruit evident.
    Rich, creamy mouthfeel that mirrors the nose - with some tropical fruit lurking.
    Suits my palate with a nice stripe of acidity.
    Probably needs a few years as others have noted.
    For a 1er cru very good value.

    September 2, 2020 - P&P
    This wine was very closed off initially. It would benefit from bottle age or a decant.
    Aromas of oyster shells, wet stone, white flowers, and ripe citrus. Definitely mineral- rather than fruit-driven.
    It is, for now, better on the palate rather than the nose. The palate is mid-weight with persistent flavours of white flowers and an outstanding length. Perhaps lacks tension, but that is likely due to the vintage.
    It deserves bottle age.

    July 19, 2020 - Un premier puissant, riche dans ce millésime plus solaire, il ne gagnera pas des prix pour la subtilité mais c’est tout à fait délicieux et on ne boude pas son plaisir. Peut-être une belle évolution à prévoir même s’il m’apparaît étrangement prêt à boire.
