Darker colored than many Chablis, this Premier Cru exhibits an attractive, though not especially forward, nose of butter, coconut, grapefruit, and caramel. Soft and almost creamy in the mouth, it still maintains its crispness with mineral/steel components on top of ripe citrus fruit. Excellent with seafood. It would be criminal to serve this wine too cold since that mutes its best quatlities. On sale at $15, a good price for a Premier Cru Chablis. At its $30+ retail price it would not be a good value. - HK 2002-04-30
