Damn, this wine gets me. Profound and captivating, a wine I keep thinking about weeks later. This vintage is rounder and fleshier, pushing closer to great white Burgundy, where the 07 is more acid and Chenin wooly/sappy. Wow. So sad to have only just found these wines after Stephane's untimely death.

Winemaker had a heart attack in the vineyard. Such a sad story. The wine is a stunner. Refined and full of joy.

Racey acidity. Lemon and vanilla on palate with medium plus body. Really well made like a Chablis
