As prices for white Burgundy in general and Chablis in particular continue to rise, it is nice to find still affordable producers making great wine. This is one such producer. the wine is made in a concrete egg and sees no oak. Light golden in color with some green hues, clear and bright. The nose is nice with crushed shells, slight chalk/minerality and lemon. Medium bodied. Lean and racy texture. Good acidity. On the palate, lemons and crushed shells. Long finish. This is drinking well now and should continue to drink well for another ten to twelve years. Nice on its own, this w
Gold/green in color, clear and bright. The nose has chalk, salinity and green apples. Medium bodied. Moderate acidity. No sharp edges. On the palate, red apples with slight chalk. Easy drinking. Moderate finish. Drinking well now and should for another five to eight years. This would work well with shell fish.
This is a very nice Chardonnay made from estate grown and purchased fruit. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has some green apple often found in Chablis, but mostly grapefruit with some lemon. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is moderately crisp with a bit of chalky minerality. Good finish. It drinks well on its own and worked well with a caprese salad. Drink over the next few years.
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
From an excellent producer who is still affordable in Chablis. These are not what I think of as "traditional" wines, but they are quite good and certainly not "modern" if that would be the opposite of traditional. Light golden in color. The nose has some green apples more of a lemony quality. There is a slight chalkiness to it, but more spice. Good not great acidity. On the palate, this is more about lemons with some underlying spice. Nice finish. Still young, this may yet improve a bit more. Presuming no oxidation issues (and I have not run into any with this producer), this shoul
It is always a pleasure to drink Chablis Even more Grand Cru from a great vintage. These are some of the best expressions of Chardonnay. This was my second time being lucky enough to try this one. It was pretty consistent, This one was no exception, Green/gold in color. Shimmering bright. The nose has plenty of green apples with a nice chalk/sea shell quality. On the palate, this is ripe and broad. It has a slightly oily texture which is a good thing. More red apple with underlying chalk. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is still young and though ageing white Burgundies can b
Light golden in color. The nose has some flint along with a lemon/lime note. On the palate, this is crisp although slightly sweet. Some lemon candy. Also a bit of salinity on the finish. Short finish. This is a solid Chablis which probably should be consumed in the next three to five years.
Light golden in color. The nose has minerals, smoke, slight gun powder and plenty of peachces. On the palate, there is a sour lemon quality that is very nice. Clean with lots of energy. This is a round wine but the energy replaces some of the acidity. Nice finish. Drinking well now, it should last for anothr five to seven years.
This was oxidized. It's hard to say Pre-Mox since it is 17 years old, but this should not have been in this shape. It had been purchased a decade or so ago and well stored since then. Deep gold in color. The nose is slightly oxidized, but not quite to a "sherry" level. On the palate, there is some lime fruit and a bit of butterscotch. But it is oxidized more than the nose. Perhaps still a bit drinkable but why? White Burgundy issues have extended into some Chablis wines, but it's hard to say that is what happened here. This seems more of a less than great cork and a 17 year old Cha
This was the surprise of the Chablis tasting. My first time trying this winery. It was my #2 WOTN and the group's #1. Yellow/gold in color. The nose has a nice flinty quality along with green apples. On the palate, this has a slightly oily texture. Great acidity. Tart apple fruit over a chalky base. Also a bit of lemons. Long finish. This should drink well for a decade more. It will go great with sea food or lighter salads. Certainly a winery that I need to explore further.
