I find myself between scores on this wine, but the reason I’m pushing it to 91 is because it showed better (for my preferred taste) on day two, suggesting more time in the cellar could slightly improve this. To me, this is almost totally Chablis like, though it’s just missing a hint of steeliness. Lemon oil, honeysuckle, and crushed rocks on the nose. Day 1 showed razor sharp acidity...electric like. Day 2 it became a touch more rounded. My first remark about this wine to someone was “it’s like licking fresh squeezed lemon juice off of limestone”. Tart, vibrant and definitely best with food. Day 2 added some stone fruits and a touch more sweetness to the finish. My thanks to @David T for introducing me to this producer, who I’m starting to hear about more and more often.

If you like your white burgundy crisp fresh and mineral this is your wine. Lovely minerality with crushed stones , citrus and lime. Medium body, crisp and fresh with an elegant finish. My score 89, drink to 2023

Nice little wine, probably the leanest white burgs I’ve had from 15. Acacia, white grapefruit, lemon, lemon pith, wet stones, flint and a hint of nuttiness. Pretty lean and tight on the palate. Finish pulls up a bit short and a touch bitter. Revisit in a year or two

Delicious starting to open up and show it's true potential, light citrus, lots of crushed stones, mineral, a hidden hint of litchi and grapefruit, medium body, creamy yet highly vibrant with crisp mineral acidity, long delicious fresh finish. I have to be strong and wait a bit longer it will pay off no doubt. My score 88 (with a clear 90 potential) , drink to 2022

My fav white of La Paulee SF in 2018 and one of least expensive! Fruit and acid in perfect balance. Lean enough I could drink a bottle in 20 mins 😋
