The first of a bracket of 7 Grand Cru Whites from the 2016 vintage last Saturday. We knew the lineup but not the order they are served in. My notes - Quite exotic ripe notes for a Chablis (as it turned out) - honeyed peach. Great intensity on the nose - loved the nose. A few of the tasters marked it down for what they saw as botrytis. I thought it added interest. Possibly my favourite wine of the bracket.

Rich, muscat, lychee, baked-citrus. Uniquely identifiable among the 2016s

Opulent, unctuous, lemon rind, steel and sea salt. Young but delicious.
