2010 Chablis


Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Last bottle of this one, and its drinking beautifully. Complex pure nose has all the elements in measure: broth, ripe fruit, apple blossoms, chalky minerality ((almost like talc). Sexy-soft textured carries clean, stone-infused light-footed fruit into a very pure finish. More in the mellow, elegant side than the electric acidity side. Amazing that I got this for under $20 5 years ago. — 13 hours ago

Powerful and clear. Very precise flavors, hints of pear and light apple with limestone. Very pure midpalate. A hint of sandalwood. Lovely — a month ago

Heart Stone Vineyard Red Rhone Blend 2010

David T

On the the nose, grilled meats, soy, mint, menthol, black currants, dry blackberries, blue fruits, black plum, dark spice and decayed dark florals. The mouthfeel is full, rich, ripe that starts juicy and slowly dries across the palate. Fruits are the much like the nose. There's a good presence of tarriness, deep-dark Asian-Indian spices, dry stems, leather, pepper, wood shavings, menthol, mint & herbaceousness. Then, the fruits start to differentiate themselves on the longer plate set; blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, blueberries, mocha powder, caramel, crushed dry rocks, graphite, soy, grilled meats, dry decayed floral bouquet, violets & black cherry cola. The earth still outshines the fruits. The structure is still big. The elegant stingy finish swirls of everything above quite simultaneously on a long rich high acid finish. Still needs 5+ years. Photos of the the heart stone, vines of the "Heart Stone Vinyard" and those beautiful Paso Syrah grapes at harvest. The Heart Stone Vineyard is in the Paso Robles Adelaide AVA with a 30 acre oak forest on a hill and 8 acres planted to Rhone varietals. It was planted by John and Mary Swanson in 2000. They hired Justin Smith (Winemaker/Owner Saxum Winery) to select the property and plant the vineyard. He agreed on the condition he could take all the grapes. 2003 was the first vintage of Saxum Heart Stone. The high density blocks are planted on gentle South slopes of limestone and shale. It has 8 different clones of Syrah, 5 of Grenache and 2 Mourvedre. — a day ago
