Fresh and lemony, offering Granny Smith apple and mineral notes. Balanced on a lean frame, with a mouthwatering finish.
Greenish straw. Musky ginger, quinine and white pepper notes lift the fruit aromas of lemon, melon, peach and passion fruit. Juicy and quite firm in the mouth, with excellent focus to the lime zest and mineral flavors. This bracing, dry, tangy wine also shows the plumpness and density of the year.

Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of yellow fruits, vanilla, truffle and spearmint, plus a whiff of orange zest. Juicy, firm and dry, with strong acids framing the citrus, mineral and musky spice flavors. The pure, brisk village wine reminded me in style of a 2004. Classic finishing flavors of lemon and minerals.
Lemon cream and minerals on the nose; riper than the Petit Chablis. Then juicy and supple, with soft citrus flavors nicely framed by healthy acidity. Fruity and pure on the back end.
