    January 2, 2021 - Another bad bottle of this. Second bottle I opened was quite good, however. FWIW, the bad bottle had a foil capsule and the good bottle had a wax one.

    December 21, 2020 - Clearly more evolved than the 2008 Dauvissat Chablis tasted next to it. The color is also darker, we are in light golden here. The nose is strange, there is red apple, mandarine and almonds. Rich and full bodied palate, wax, lemon juice and a subdued minerality. There’s a lack of the usual flavors of brine and wool. The is not pre-moxed, but it’s certainly not where it should be. Tonight, I’d much rather drink the Chablis.

    December 20, 2020 - Slightlly oxidized. The wine is drinkable but not what it should be

    December 18, 2020 - One of the very best Dauvissat I had in a while. Superb nose without any agressive reductive notes. Lemon and lime completed with pear. without any over ripeness. Very chalky. Very pure and bright and nervy acidity without excess.
    Great wine here.

    December 13, 2020 - Bright and tart, with some sea water, brine and a little nutty character. Drinking well.
