Chablis

Domaine François Raveneau

Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2011

From the Willi’s Wine Bar list. Light straw gold. Heavy, more weight and depth when compared with the Meursault Exudes young Chablis with sea breeze and salinity, honeysuckle, wet clay and white flowers in the nose. Rich and heavy in the mouth. Shows power and complexity with air. Needs time. But this is pretty good juice. — a day ago

Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

QPR alert 🚨!

Nose has light florals, fresh lemon peel and wet limestone.
Palate has sweet (not tart) lemon, (too) light acidity and light mineral/saline finish.

This was $18 at our Costco. I was intrigued when I saw this vintage, it easily drinks like established Chablis at ~$25. No one should hesitate to buy at least a bottle or two, or more.

Picking up a white peach note the longer the wine is open, nice. 👍

@Dawn E. Yes, anything for 2016 is a buy. Only flaw, for me, on this is the light acidity, I wanted more than what was delivered, otherwise great bottle for the price.

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

Nice golden hue, looks heavy and rich in the glass. Honeyed fragrant nose. Notes of sweet apricot, mango, lemon, white clay, tan spice, and stones. Nice intensity in the mouth, with gobs of fruit matched against acidity that built over the afternoon. Telltale aged Raveneau honey, exotic today but not over the top. I brought this and it was the best of the couple or so bottles of it that I've had. Was at its best with ~5 hours of air, and leftover was still singing the next morning. — 20 days ago

Domaine Bernard Defaix

Chablis Chardonnay 2015

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Aromas of citrus, almond and hints of nougat. On the palate citrus verging on stone fruit. Absolutely delicious. Tasting more new world in this warm vintage. When they are as good as this for only $39AUD I cannot see the point in cellaring. On the 2nd night a little oyster shell and mineral on the nose. — 5 days ago

Montmains Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay 2014

Aromas of stone fruits with a crisp citrus edge surrounded by herb scents. On the palate ripe fruit flavors of peach & apple with honey tones, savory with good balance. Lingering finish ending with citrus mineral character. Nice now, small production 600 cases made. — 15 days ago

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2005

Damn, that was delicious. Either talk to your Rosenthal rep, or ask your local wine shop to find this from Rosenthal, there is definitely some on the east coast. Smokin good. Probably some bottle variation but this cork was pristine and the wine was in great shape. — 8 days ago

"La Forest" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Two Forets side by side, what a treat! Again some solid oak though with an elegant and clean finish. Took on some saltier notes after some air. — 13 days ago
