Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2018 July)

I have had very different results with this wine with two bottles tasted in 2015 that were distinctly exotic, soft and rather short. Happily, two bottles tasted in May and July 2018 bottle were much better and possess plenty of Chablis character with its aromas of sea breeze, iodine, green fruit and lemon rind. The supple yet precise medium-bodied flavors are a study in restraint with their cool minerality and wonderful sense of underlying tension along with good power on the lingering finish. This is a big wine that is already drink well and while for my taste it's not quite fully mature, it's close.
