This is completely different from the prior two wines with an admirably pure nose of mineral reduction, tidal pool and floral notes that offer plenty of Chablis character trimmed in just a soupçon of wood. There is good ripeness to the rich, round and generous flavors that display excellent intensity and punch on the saline-infused and wonderfully persistent finish where an almost surprising amount of oak appears to disrupt the overall sense of purity. My score assumes that the wood treatment will eventually be absorbed but for those who do not care for overtly wooded Chablis, there are better choices.

Yellow fruits and spicy oak on the nose; this smells round! Fat, ripe and spicy in the mouth; at once round and powerful but with a bit less intensity than the Valmur, which is from much younger vines. Shows a strong saline oyster juice quality, with yellow fruits in the background today. Still, this strikes me as more Cote de Beaune- than Chablis-like. Finishes broad and a bit warm, with very good length. 90+

The definition here is very fine. The palate is very well defined with crisp acidity, quite spicy in the mouth with a cohesive and yet rather conservative and linear finish. Drink now and over the next 8-10 years. - Neal Martin
