2018; Beeswax, yellow apple, green hay, still quite primary. Decanted 2H, notes and score tomorrow.
Nose has warmed lemon pie, burning beeswax candle, bruised yellow apple, saline solution and wet, grassy notes.
Palate has warmed lemon slice, dried pineapple, dehydrated apricots and candied lemon.
Possibly a compromised bottle, will check another soon.
These wines need patience...Finally returning to how we remember.
Nose has tart green apple, honeycomb and grassy notes.
Palate has dried pineapple, candied lemon and dehydrated stonefruit (apricot or peach).
Lovely; Score change 90>91. — 6 days ago
Nose has cooled lemon curd, light apple cider vinegar, cold pineapple, moist moss, oxidized green apple slice, damp clove and very wet grassy notes.
Palate has pineapple core, bruised green pears, faint lanolin, light honey notes, light under-ripe yellow peach and white waxy notes round out the finish.
Double decant with 12H rest. A Saint Aubin for the trending natural wine crowd without being over the top 'natural'. 92-93 Points.
Paired to a grilled slab of Steelhead Trout, perfection.
Nose has fresh green apple peel, warmed yellow apple slice and white waxy notes.
Palate has warm pear, slight honey and under-ripe pineapple.
Much improved; Score change 92>93. — 5 days ago
2017; Mother's Day 2022.
Raiding the wine cooler at my parent's house. Many bottles we've gifted them over the years sit patiently, as they barely drink wine anymore... 🤷🏻♂️
This bottle is in a great zone, the inexpensive '17 Burgundy blanc's are quite enjoyable now. — 11 days ago
Classic Dampt Lechet nose. Seashells. Minerals. Green apple skins. So aromatic. So classic. Just classic. I can’t stop saying classic. Palate is rich but energetic and has nice cut. 19 is kind of almost riper than 18 on this bottling which is weird. Salty finish and tons of mineral depth and lovely acid structure. Ideally better in 5 years. Serious grip and intensity here. Great length, depth, power and concentration. Even some finesse. But this is a beast. A salty beast. Love it — 4 days ago
Yellow amber to antique gold developing in this 8 year old beauty. Nose showing pineapple and baked lemon, green onion and lemon bread. Lemon pith opening on the palate with lime peel, lemon zest and briny cucumber. Kumquat sharpness, white grapefruit, bitter orange, kefir lime. Not cellared, so rapid age expected, still a lovely treat.

Medium lemon color with aromas of stone fruits, citrus and floral aromas, adding wafts of nutty notes. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and peach, citrus and honeysuckle, lively acidity with spice notes. Long finish ending with a creamy texture and wet toasty mineral character. Very nice, will age well. — a day ago
Pear, white flowers, crushed rocks and gun powder on the nose. On the palate the pear is in front but there is a nice acid drive making the wine rather vertical and vivid. The finish is fresh with pear notes and a bit of chalky mouthfeel. That's a good effort! — 4 days ago
Un autre classique pour moi que j’adore, équilibre, classe, élégance et pureté comme toujours, acidité plus en retrait sur cette bouteille toutefois mais très légèrement, se boit toujours comme un charme. 90-91
Balance, class, elegance and pure fruit and flavours, gorgeous but with the acidity just a slight touch backwards, still gorgeous and drinks like a charm. — 2 days ago
2019; Decanted 2H.
Nose has dried pineapple, wet plywood, dried lemon zest, dehydrated mango, vanilla and peach cobbler.
Palate has pineapple core, ripe yellow apple, clementine zest, mango with a nice bite of acidity.
So youthful! We're really looking ahead to how these develop over the next 6-8+ years, as that seems to be the sweet spot on this particular site. (Heck, the 2013's are still drinking amazing.)
Nose has overflowing pineapple & vanilla and crushed lemon peel.
Palate has warmed vanilla ice cream, mashed ripe pineapple with faded acidity. The vanilla notes are very present today. — 6 days ago
OMG what a nose . Heaven. Floral and ripe and so pretty. Like pretty when you see a woman so gorgeous that you just can’t muster up any words. Striking. Unreal lemon and lime. Meyer lemon. But omg the florality. Beautiful discreet oak. Framed so perfectly. Like a filmmaker framing a shot. This nose is 9.9. It’s that easy and that good. Wow. That is concentrated and so deep. Candied and elegant with a superb core of sweet fruit and sweet wood. Impeccable balance. Superb intense and scintillating minerality. More mineral than 18. About as mineral as 19. As this airs the harmony of the nose becomes greater and greater. Wow this is dense and intense. For a wine that is this structured it is graceful a f. — 9 days ago
