I saw someone else' comment on here, 97 vintage, saying 'past.' What a chump. Once again, if you are rating this wine any less than 9.2 we don't want to hear it. Keep your nit-picking sniveling mutant face away from this juice. Don't buy it. Only buy this if you respect that it says clos de la coulee de serrant on the bottle. That is by far what's happening and no one cares about your opinion. This appellation exists because your opinion is not that important. This appellation speaks louder than 99.9999% of professional careers since careers have existed. If you don't approach with respect you will be slapped and there will be no apologies. Don't buy this unless you can take the heat. STFU.

Caramel. Apricot marmalade. Honey comb. Tertiary wrapped up in strong acid. Linear and precise with a well-defined depth.

Feel like my mother would be ashamed of the language I would use to write this review. 30 years as wine guy and never had one good bottle - what a joke. Oxidized, rancid, volatile,....

Gorgeous amber, slightly oxidative nose. Palate is caramel, honey, citrus. Short finish, drink up! Just lovely honeyed dry old chenin. Still powerful at nearly 22 years of age.
