    May 22, 2020 - After a pre-mox 08 Valmur opened this with some trepidation. Light greenish gold! Classic Chablis nose of sea air and chalk; lovely silky mid-palate with good acidity on the finish. Interesting that had no pre-mox with these but Valmur may be more problematic. This is probably at peak as the fruit and balance are still excellent. On to the 2010s.

    May 14, 2020 - This wine drives me nuts. I bought a case on release and of the 6 I’ve had, 3 were pre-moxed to the max and 2 were very good but not great. I forgot about it but saw it at the back of a bin in the vault, so I decided to try again and pray I’d get a good example of the wine at 12. Out of the bottle, the color was a pale yellow and my spirits brightened. The nose was as fresh as a recent Fevre 2014 so I got really excited. The pay off was brilliant grand cru Chablis that we all seek but too often eludes us. Oyster shells & iodine; finish that lasts forever without even a hint of heat despite the 13% alcohol. Every bit as good as Raveneau or Dauvissat. Sad that you probably have to buy a case to get a couple of these (I hope) but my goodness, thiss is really great wine.

    February 4, 2020 - Undrinkable. Seems prematurely oxidised like many other bottles of this mentioned here by others.
    The nose seemed fine but palate was acidic with no significant development or improvement within 60 minutes in the glass.
    Bitter disappointment.

    December 22, 2019 - Nez qui met tout de suite de bonne humeur : beurre rance, caramel au lait et vieille pomme. La bouche, malgré une attaque tenant encore debout a le bon goût d'être ultra-courte pour épargner au dégustateur une blague qui n'en finit pas.

    Un vin extraordinaire dans ses jeunes années, j'aurais dû tout vidanger à l’époque. Il ne me reste plus que son bouchage liège pour pleurer!

    November 29, 2019 - From 75cl, exquisite cork. Purchased 2011 in a fancy wooden case at cellar door; never moved since placed in my cold cellar a few days later. Were it not for a hint of gout de fusil / gunflint I would have guessed this as a good Bourgogne Ordinaire, or just perhaps as a passable St. Aubin (or similar) 1er Cru. But no way does this pass as a GC Chablis from a fine producer, sorry. Probably a victim of premox, but just not as pronounced in the other, completely premoxed, bottle opened this evening. That makes two expensive bottles opened without pleasure, Oh well, stupid me for buying cases of white Burgundy. From now it is single bottles only, if that. There are always other Chardonnay wines, bottled under screwcap, and/or using sufficent SO2. 87P
