More verve than the 06 which was also fabulous. Defaix is quickly becoming my favorite Chablis guy. This 07 is current release btw. Excellent

Salted lemon, sea spray, high acid, very fresh for 15 years old ⚡️

This is a delicious complex Chablis that is vibrant despite (or perhaps due to) being released 14 years after the vintage! Golden straw colored; super fresh nose of honeysuckle and pear; melon, crisp minerality. Perhaps a touch thin compared to the other ales Lys I have tried. But great nonetheless with years to spare.

This is drinking very well. Have not had a lot of Chablis with age. Love the oyster, saline, lemon and acidic.
