Alongside the 02 this is a pup. But what a wine in prospect. Some of that oyster shell and soft lemon on the nose. Tightly coiled but not ripe on the middle. Great balance. It needs time, but great.

This is a beautiful bottle. Rock pool, cool lime, slateiness. Wonderfully aged with soft edges and a shifting end to the palate with honey, saline, elderflower. This is really lovely

Lovely and poised. Deep and rounded. Warm lemon oil and oyster shells. The ripeness and roundness of 2010 but this is in a delicious place. Not quite as crystal as the Raveneau alongside but lovely body.

Surprisingly open for such a young wine. Great acidity, lots of citrus, a bit heady.

What a tremendous bottle. Dense with extract and citrus oil, this was backwards, but juicy, mineral and weightless too. Next to a perfectly young 2016 Forest, the 2015 Clos showed youthful but less generous. With air and a Zalto burgundy stem this slowly blossomed, all the while dancing with wonderful movement and energy.

Wonderfully mature but still vibrant and succulent. Lime. Oily limpid saline lemon. Mineral and poised and long. Excellent.

Medium gold. Heavy. Rich fruit forward nose. Notes of apricot, flowers, citrus, crushed stone and sea breeze. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Fat. With air, lemon creme and white stone notes dominate the amazing nose. This is in the zone and ready for business now but I would hope this could stay at a great plateau for the next decade.

Great minerality, oystershell, perfect acidity, very smooth and layered complexity.

Lovely deep fruit. Very intense and coiled steel with buckets of minerality and drive. There’s a whiff of stewed apple here. I see premox on the horizon, but this is fun now. Should be better in 5 years but certainly not this bottle.
