Needed some air for the aromas but opened up beautifully.

Chablis, perfect to cut through all the doom and gloom, flinty, ripping acid, delightful, very much looking forward to the next election cycle

Lovely, with a richness that stays firmly rooted in Chablis. Full of ripe orchard fruit, limestone minerality, and deft use of oak. I'd drink more chardonnay if I could afford more GC Chablis.

At a really great place right now. Seashells and citrus, balanced with a background of oak.

Color has slight greenish tones. Very nice nose, iodine, lemon zest, touch of almonds too and sea shells that are also on the palate. Very Chablis style with energy and an edgy acidity, mineral and saline with great length, delicious.

Couleur dorée avec de légers reflets verdâtres, très Droin comme couleur. Un beau nez typé avec des notes salines et iodées, coquillages, zeste de citron, et des amandes. Une bouche très Chablisienne, acidité vive, sans être tranchante, belle énergie, minéral et salin sur cette finale très longue. 92-93
