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.
Medium golden in color. The nose has green apples with a slight chalkiness. On the palate, there is a slight gun powder note with tart lemons. Plush texture. Slightly yeasty. Is this barrel fermented? An interesting take on Chablis that I very much enjoyed. Seemed to be love or hate it at the table. It does seem a bit advanced for its age. If this bottle was representative, it probably should be consumed in the next five years.
Silvery/green/gold in color. The nose has gun powder, slight lemons on a medium intensity nose. On the palate, this has a slick texture. Chalk and minerals with slight green apple flavors. Good acidity. Nice finish. Drinking well now and a bit leaner (in a good way) than many of the 2015's. It should be good drinking for at least the next decade. It should go well with seafood and lighter salads.
Silvery gold in color. The nose is initially quiet with slight gun powder. That becomes more pronounced with air and in addition, some green apples. On the palate, this is slightly oily in texture. Tart lemon-lime flavors. Juicy acidity. It does seem riper in style for a Chablis. This is still young and should continue to come together for the next few years and be good for a decade more after that.
Light green/gold in color. The nose is tight at first. It turns dusty with some lemon. With more air a bit of gun powder shows up. Better on the palate. This is oily with a round texture. Nice minerality. Good finish. Those I tasted with liked this relative to the other wines, more than I. It is not as crisp as the other Chablis and drinks more like it was from Cote de Beaune (which might not be a bad thing). This might get a bit better but I wouldn't count on it. That said, it should easily last a decade. I will be great with shellfish and other seafood.
