Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Drinking really well right now.
Concentrated nerve of minerality and baked apples. Slight oak impression is just right.

Premiere Trie Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1996

An amazing abundance of applesauce and citrus. Very sweet and refreshing on the pallet, reminiscent of a Riesling. Minerality on the nose. Deep golden yellow in color. Fantastic pairing with Shishito peppers. — 6 hours ago

Goutte d'Or Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay

Juicy apples pear and toasted hazelnuts on the nose with just a hint of oxidation. Bright and juicy on palate with orchard fruit and lemon zest flavors. Acidity is round adding to the texture. Appears to be a prime spot for current enjoyment. — a month ago

La Goutte d'Or Vouvray 1990

first and foremost was NOT expecting the orange color ~ have had numerous aged botrytis bottles ranging from golden to brown but the orange really threw me

apricot, quince, orange marmalade, grilled orange & pineapple, honey, caramelized brown sugar ~ plenty of sweet severed with acidity

though went well with diver scallops & risotto the most incredible pairing was with Stilton on Égalité mini toasts ~ and not just for flavor ~ but texturally transcendental

Chavignol Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2007

When I went to open this wine for a friend who contributed to my wine education during the early years he immediately said, "Not until it was at least a decade on .” I shrugged my shoulders and buried it. I understand now. I had concerns as there was something floating around in the bottle. In the mouth it felt 3-D but never heavy. Flavors of watermelon , peach , red berries, and flavors quite frankly I had never experienced in a wine or could identify. At times it showed like a cocktail one would get on the beach , at other times like a complex sour ale. I feel confident in its youth it had a higher level of sweetness but like a great Riesling it perfectly integrated. A lingering juicy finish. I realize this wine would not be for everyone but for me one of my most memorable wine experiences and what I love about wine.. Honestly, my score is irrelevant.

@Severn Goodwin Lol , to be honest if I had more than one I would probably open it now because I’d be curious about the evolution. I have a ‘15 so that will sleep.

@Ira Schwartz We've got '12 thru '16, at least 3 of each. But they're out of my hands in storage. I'll pull some up maybe this Fall or next Spring.
