Drank this bottle among friends at the end of an evening and it was perfect in that spot. Refreshing and energetic. Light golden in color with green hues, clear and bright. The nose has green apples, slight quince, minerality and a tweak of lemons. Full bodied. On the palate, this is crisp and refreshing on a beautiful summer evening. Flavors of citrus and green apples with slight minerals. Long finish. Great on its own, this is food friendly and would work well with vegetarian or seafood dishes. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
While not inexpensive, this is one of the better "affordable" Grand Cru wines in Chablis. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is great with crushed shells and sea air. With air, a bit of lime comes out. Full bodied. No tannins. On the palate, limes, quince, slight salinity with a nice texture. Good acidity. Long finish. This drinks great on its own but is better with food. It would be great with oysters. Drink over the next eight to ten years.
My first time trying wine. Very nice. Gold green in color, clear and bright. The nose is a bit chalky with apples (mostly green). Good acidity. On the palate, this is crisp and tasty. Chalky with lemons. Nice finish. Nice on its own, but this is very food friendly. It went great with a caprese salad. Drink over the next seven to ten years. Nice value.
With most of my favorite Chablis producers now selling their wines for (well) north of $100 per bottle, Dampt has become one of our go to Chablis. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is slightly chalky with some minerality and slight lemon. Also some salinity. Full bodied. Crisp acidity. On the palate, lemons, chalk and minerality. Long finish. Delicious. This drinks well but better with food. Shellfish is ideal but so is Hummus and Roasted Veggies. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
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
