Wines


1990

  • Chablis Clos (Feb 2006): (three bottles) the first was not oxidized but bottles 2 and 3 were oxidized, drinkable but not really enjoyable. Dan Kravitz imported these, and he has told me Duplessis Les Clos in a good vintage should last for much longer than 15 years [Lewis Dawson]

1996

  • Chablis Clos (Feb 2006): not oxidized, excellent, but perhaps the aroma & palate are a bit advanced vis-a-vis the structure? Second bottle opened several days later, clearly very advanced, drinkable but autumnal, without doubt this is on its way downhill [Lewis Dawson]
  • Chablis Clos (June 2008): not oxidized, fresh, excellent, this bottle seemed ready to age many more years [Lewis Dawson]
