“Minerality” blind tasting: voted overall most mineral, austere, funky at first but it opens up real nicely, most people thought this was Chablis

A special wine. Juicy bright lemons, wet rocks, freshly mown hay. Elegant mouthfeel, almost luxurious. A finish that goes on forever. Gonna be sad this when it's gone.

Many years ago while visiting the Seattle market Didier remarked that, in his opinion, Silex did not come into its own until at least ten years of bottle age. This bottle, a 2001, was lightly honeyed, developed and delicious.

Big and brawny--what you would expect from the vintage. But plenty of balanced acidity for such a monster. Delicious w/ butter poached lobster.

Excellent wine but best to decant and make sure it's not too cold.
