Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2008
Honey pear and white peach lemon and lily-of-the-valley and also the bitterness of pear pip and a rich piquant nuttiness are featured in the Michel 2006 Chablis Vaudesir (tasted shortly before bottling). Wonderfully lush... Honey pear and white peach lemon and lily-of-the-valley and also the bitterness of pear pip and a rich piquant nuttiness are featured in the Michel 2006 Chablis Vaudesir (tasted shortly before bottling). Wonderfully lush in texture and full of rich fruit it also does not lack for a savory saline mineral dimension nor for a dynamic sense of flavor interplay sometimes missing from Chablis of grand cru stature. It should perform beautifully for at least the next 8-10 years. The succulent pungent saline savory 2005 is very nearly as impressive.

A notably ripe nose that is floral and exotic with spicy fruit aromas that dissolve into even more powerful flavors that possess excellent volume on the textured and detailed finish that really coats the palate with sap... A notably ripe nose that is floral and exotic with spicy fruit aromas that dissolve into even more powerful flavors that possess excellent volume on the textured and detailed finish that really coats the palate with sap as well as a hint of warmth. Very solid quality here in the context of the vintage and this should develop quickly.

(bottled two weeks prior to my visit) Pale yellow. Complex spicy nose combines lemon cream powdered stone hazelnut and acacia flower. Rich and sweet but not yet particularly complex with a good spine of acidity for aging... (bottled two weeks prior to my visit) Pale yellow. Complex spicy nose combines lemon cream powdered stone hazelnut and acacia flower. Rich and sweet but not yet particularly complex with a good spine of acidity for aging. Concentrated wine but a bit disjointed from the recent bottling with a slight finishing tartness that will almost certainly be absorbed with a couple years of cellar time.
