Nice Chablis that paired very well with grilled halibut, lobster mac and seafood gumbo. This wine took about 15 minutes to start developing that "wet stone limestone citrus funk" on the nose but as soon as it is did, it was all good from there! I honestly think this one could benefit most from 3 years of bottle aging. This wine had a very thick mouthfeel at the front. Nice bit of peach and ripe pear right up front. Dried fruit and limestone in the middle with lots of acidity on the finish. Crisp, clean, and paired fairly well with a variety of dishes. Structure appears to be there, and definitely kept developing as the night went on, so I'd say this one will probably keep evolving over the next 4-5 years, but can probably hold QUITE a bit longer.
