-  * **Chablis "Les Clos"​** (Sep. 2018 – ): 2 btls oxidized + btls not oxidized. The good btls were brilliant, slightly understated,​ but glorious examples of top notch grand cru Chablis. Their youthful green color, fresh nose, & sensational palate all suggested a wine that is nearing its plateau of maturity with at least 4 years of life ahead. From a lot of 6 purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Apr. 2016.

   * **Chablis "Les Clos"​** (Sep. 2014–Feb 2020): I purchased 36 bottles of this and have 2 bottles remaining. Six had the US Vineyard Brands labels (3-4 mos less barrel aging). Six had the Dauvissat-Camus labels (US version). The rest had French tax capsules. Over the last five years I have had one bottle which was oxidized and all of the rest were quite sound. This is really remarkable in comparison with my past experience with Dauvissat and the 2008 and 2009 Clos, where even my initial bottles were oxidized.
