Excellent bottle. Started off with hints reduction, sulfur and gun flint. Evolved into intense fruit of golden apple, pear and honey with white flowers.

Another Dead Soldier from 2002 chez Dauvissat. Easily the most problematic vintage I have encountered. Coq au Vin Jaune(Dauvissat '02). Painful to type.

This had totally avoided the pre-mox problem. At 16 years old, it was certainly mature but it was fresh, nuanced and complex. The maturity showed most in how rounded it had become. Really great stuff!

La Forest, not Vaillons. And certainly not Petit Chablis.

Fully mature in 375, this racy, mineral driven, chalky wine showed nicely after some time in the glass, where it put on weight. A lovely, lingering finish. Not as sophisticated as the Grand Crus, but always a wine that punches above its weight, especially in 2002.
