Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Chablisien profile but very rich.

Nose is rich. Almost buttery. Not oaky. Perfumed though in a lovely way. Really pretty.

Palate has green apple. But almost like it’s baked. Some minerality. But not a screamer. Really delicious. Rich on the palate.

A very enjoyable wine if a bit atypical.

As this opens its spectacular. I shouldnt really go crazy on it bc the vintage is so reviled. But it’s amazing. Rich yet elegant. Aromatic. Complex. Wow.

Bought from fass selections.

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Very nice premier cru Chablis. Will be very nice to try in a few years. But now the length alone is superb. So full yet precise with great minerality. Delicious. — 3 days ago

Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs

A pale straw color with a generous amount of tiny bubbles. A fine mousse and bead. This is an incredibly alive champagne and it starts immediately. Meyer lemons and tart green apples, along with smoke and mint on the nose. That wonderful citrus streak continues throughout.

100% Chardonnay primarily from Mareuil-sur-Ay and Chouilly. Family owned grower and one of my favorite producers with such consistent quality. Richer and fuller than many others, it’s round and vibrant. Lovely depth and acidity with a backbone of herbs and spices.

Chalky minerality and crystallized honey shine here. Beautiful toasted bread and almonds on display, along with more green apples and lemons. Apricots, plums, and peaches sing a lovely song. Chamomile and more honey on the long, exceedingly pleasant finish. A highly attractive pour.

Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Nice acidity with some width to it and a little bit of richness, a delicious finish on pears mostly. Good bottle but lacks the zip of the best Perrières.

Beau vin sans être dans la même classe que les meilleurs Perrières, belle acidité et une bouche assez ample avec un peu de richesse, belle finale sur les poires. 90-91

Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Straw gold color. Young and vibrant in the glass. Leesy nose. Notes of citrus, sandstone, apricot and some tan spice. Great fruit and acidity. This is in a good window for consumption but a bottle like this one has many more years in front of it. — 5 days ago

Les Pitangerets Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Great bottle well worth the asking price that is not cheap for a St-Aubin. White orchard fruit, minerlitity and a touch of roundness, fresh and classy, elegant and so well balanced. The bottle emptied itself in a flash. Great stuff.

Quel délice. Fruits blancs, fraîcheur, minéralité, une touche de richesse, quelle classe et élégance aussi, très équilibré et savoureux, la bouteille s’est vidée en le temps de le dire. 91-92

Meursault-Perriéres 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

My best bottle so far, with none of the oxidation present in some previous bottles. On the nose: soft lemon, honey, a touch of oatmeal. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon and apple, honey with a distinc mineral core, and a soft smoky character. Fantastic showing. — 2 days ago

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Dard fruits, cherries, some vanilla and liquorice. The palate is amazing as usual for this great wine that I love, some power and class at the same time, balance and energetic fruit with that deliciously long finish.

Nez de fruits noirs, cerises noires, touche de vanille et de réglisse. La bouche est suave, élégante et puissante à la fois, avec de la mâche et de l’énergie, un bel équilibre et une classe indéniable avec une longue finale savoureuse. J’adore ce cru.

Montée Rouge Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

I’ll preface this with the fact that I don’t drink a lot of Pinot as I’m not a huge fan.

This was an awesome rec from the guys at Amathus! 30+ minute decant. Lovely red color with ever so slight brown edges. Nose contained oak, vanilla, and strawberries. Cherries, cream, maple syrup, and cinnamon on the palate. Definitely on the sweeter side. This was like drinking cheesecake with cherries and cinnamon on top. Reminded me of the Dimchurch Shiraz, except in Pinot form. Could have been a little deeper, but had a great finish! Paired lovely with a sausage stuffed chicken breast, small Cornish potatoes, and cinnamon covered pears. One of the best dinners I’ve cooked in a while too, so I’m sure that impacted the experience and rating :)

Best Pinot I’ve ever had!! Buying more!
