(2011 Vintage) This is also highly perfumed with a pronounced floral component dominating the other aromas that are composed of citrus, seaweed, iodine and mineral reduction while leaving no doubt that this could be nothing other than Chablis. There is excellent size, weight and muscle to the overtly powerful and well-concentrated flavors that exude a fine minerality on the extract rich finish. This explosive effort is almost aggressively saline and should improve for up to a decade in bottle.
International Wine CellarCool, pure aromas of citrus skin, white flowers, crushed stone and violet. Suave on entry, then classy and sharply delineated in the middle, with almost painful cut to the nervy flavors of citrus zest, minerals and juniper berry. Mounts slowly and inexorably, bathing the palate in minerals and lingering with great subtlety. I would not be surprised to see this rate a 95-point score with extended bottle aging.
