The nose reveals; sour lemons, green apple skin, green apple Jolly Rancher, lime zest to candy, pineapple juice, underripe green melon, white peach, honeysuckle, some fresh, green herbs, white spices, cream, notes of melted butter, caramel notes, hints of vanillin, cream, some candle wax, steely flintiness, saline, sea fossils, powdery beautiful, chalkiness, limestone minerals, grey volcanics, fruit blossoms, spring flowers, jasmine & yellow florals.

The body is; a touch waxy, full, rich, round, lush & gorgeous. Great viscosity, tangy & sour lemons, green apple skin, green apple Jolly Rancher, lime zest to candy, pineapple juice, underripe green melon, white peach, honeysuckle, honeycombs, some fresh, green herbs, white spices, caramel notes, hints of vanillin, cream, steely, flintiness, white spices, mint, saline, sea fossils, powdery chalkiness, limestone minerals, grey volcanics, river stones, tree bark w/ just a touch of sap, fruit blossoms, spring flowers, jasmine & yellow florals. The acidity is like a rushing, fresh water Colorado river. The long; gorgeous, sexy, polished, elegant, finely balanced finish is excellent wire to wire and persists minutes.

Beautiful wine & vintage. It’s about 3-5 years away from 94 & has 10-15 years of good drinking ahead. Properly stored of course.

Quite good with Lamb Chopper harder white cheese & Rustic Bakery Rosemary & Olive Oil Organic Flatbread & the Jasper Hill Willoughby soft white cheese with the Firehook flatbread crackers.

Balanced ripe apple and pear fruit, saline, minerals, acid and oak, the way only a GC Chablis can do

Why is my cellar not 50% Chablis? I can't think of a good reason.

Pale to mid Gold in colour. Tasted blind I would think this is new world. A small trace of oyster shell giving it away as Chablis. Great refreshment and drinking at its peak. Wouldn’t cellar it for longer. Not really the depth and intensity of a Grand Cru.

Just more of everything. Richness balanced but razor edge of flint and saline. Will age easily a decade or two. Sold! Despite the tariff. Bought 1. JL tasting 5/25/16 $89

Ripe with some fatness from the vintage. Chalk and saline buried underneath the fruit.

Always a pleasure to drink grand cry Chablis. This one lacked a little acid so a slightly unbalanced and not as well defined as expected. Lime juice medium length with hint of oak
