   * **Chablis "​Blanchot"​** (Feb. 2015 – Jul. 2018): 5 btls not oxidized. Still very primary & youthful in 2015; reaching its plateau of drinkability in 2018. Probably better decanted.

-  * **Chablis "​Clos"​** (Mar. 2019 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. A gem of a wine from a difficult vintage. ​Not as much depth or power as in better behaved ​vintages, but the sweet white flowers in the nose delicate minerality on the palate ​are all there. From a lot of 3 purchased in Apr. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer. [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Chablis "​Clos"​** (Mar. 2019 – ): 3 btls not oxidized. A real gem of a wine from a difficult vintage. ​Best decanted, but requires less coaxing than the Valmur. With patience, there are strong hints of the depth power found in more regular ​vintages. Sweet white flowers in the nose, together with delicate minerality ​& surprisingly colorful texture ​on the palate. Luxurious refinement. From a lot of 3 purchased in Apr. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer, & a further 2 btls in Mar. 2015 from Kermit Lynch its West Coast importer. [Rayner Cheung]
