This is the basic Domaine bottling (they also make one that doesn't list Domaine that is a negociant blend). Fevre is about the best producer of affordable Chablis. Light golden in color with some green. The nose has lemons, slight green apples and a hint of chalk. Medium bodied. On the palate, the lemons and slight green apples come out with a bit of chalk/minerals underneath. Lots of energy here. Nice acidity. Long finish. A great value in white Burgundy. This drinks great on its own but will work better with food. Oysters or clams are classic but any seafood should work. Drin
Bichot makes a lot of wine and most of it is reasonably priced and of good quality. This is no exception. Green gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with lemons, slight chalk/minerals, and a slight apple quality. Light bodied. On the palate, this drinks easy. Lemon candy notes with some fresh lemon. Some acidity. A slight bitter note on the finish. This needs to be consumed now. It works well on its own but better with lighter foods. It went well with a cheese pizza.
Quite the treat! Served to me by friends! Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose takes some time to open, and then orange/tangerine, peach, slight almond flour and a bit of a floral note. Medium bodied with a slightly oily (in a good way) texture. On the palate, this takes some time to open and then shows peach, tangerine, and stony minerality. Delicious. Long finish. This is young and will undoubtedly improve over the next seven to ten years. It should drink well for another ten to twelve after that. That said, it offers up so much energy and intensity now, it would be
1981 Domaine Ponsot Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc, France, Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits, Wine Review
The neck tag on this said 1978 but the label said 1981 so... A bit of research seems to suggest this is 60% Aligote, 25% Chardonnay, and 15% Pinot Gouges. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has a lot of mushrooms along with a bit of citrus and a burnt almond quality. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, the citrus and burnt almond quality come out. There is some life here but not a lot. Still an interesting wine to try. Drink up if you have any. Giving it the respect it deserves, share this wine with friends without food and have a back up bottle. It doesn't seem fair to
This is a nice easy going French Chardonnay (listed on the label). Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has pears and apples with a slight note of almonds. Light bodied. Crisp and clean. On the palate, green apples with a slight minerality. Nice balance. Good finish. This is refreshing and should be popular among fans of all styles of Chardonnay. This should be consumed over the next couple of years. It drinks well on its own and will work well with salads and seafoods.
At or near peak and drinking well. Garnet in color, clear and bright. The nose is great with cherries, slight funk. slight black cherries and spice. Medium bodied. On the palate, bold cherry and some black cherry fruit. Slight forest floor and mushroom underneath. Nice energy and balance. Good finish. This should drink well for another ten to twelve years. Great on its own, this would work well with salmon or a mushroom dish.
This is an inexpensive Chardonnay. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has some gun flint with a touch of peach. I suspect it had more fruit when it was younger. On the palate, a bit chalky with slight peach as well. A bit bitter on the finish. This seems past prime and should be consumed soon. It will work better with food, seafood would be a nice choice.
There is a lot of controversy about this American producer. I won't go into the here except to say, all the wines I personally purchased and opened so far have been at or above expectations. Pop and pour. Light ruby in color, slightly hazy which is not uncommon in Burgundies. The nose is very nice. Earthy with slight mushrooms, cherries, slight cranberry notes and just a bit of funk. Medium bodied with tart acidity (in a good way). On the palate, nice cherry fruit with underlying earthiness and slight mushrooms. Still on the youthful side of full maturity. That said at age eleven,
Tasted over two nights, it was better on the second. This carries the name Pinot Noir on the label as well. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has raspberries, rhubarb and slight cherries. Also, a slight dill note. Odd as this sees no wood at all. On the palate, the red fruits carry thru if a bit thin. There is a green note especially on the finish. This was disjointed on opening but with air settled a bit. It is an easy going Pinot Noir that is unremarkable in most aspects. It will work better with some lighter food, perhaps chicken salad. Dirnk over the next couple of ye
Gorgeous wine. Pop and pour, this kept improving. Still needs another ten to twelve years to maturity. Ruby in color with slight brown hues, mostly clear and bright. The nose is great with cherries, black cherries, black tea, and moist earth. Full bodied. On the palate, this is layered but tight. Complex layers of earth, cherries and spice. Light tannins. Still has plenty of fruit and also oak to integrate. Long finish. Delicious. This should easily go another twenty to thirty years. Drink on its own or with any fowl or hearty sea food. This could easily work with a roast or
