Rive Alte 'Toc Bas' Friuli Isonzo Friulano 2015


At Therese Chris. 8/5/23. What an interesting wine! A white floral yet early profile with an almost creamy palate and chewy texture and long acidic finish. AA deal (5 with 10 Chard!) and first taste. Well liked by all. — 2 months ago


Tradition Brut Crémant d'Alsace Pinot Noir Blend

Like a slightly more rounded, subtle champagne, with much more crisp apple and green citrus notes and just a hint of brioche, vegetal / grassy notes, and freshly torn bread crusts on the nose and palate. — 5 months ago

Le Bas de Chapelot Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Popped and poured, no formal notes. At this stage, I find the 2019 "Le Bas de Chapelot" to be absolutely delightful, if not a bit of an outlier. I write that as a compliment because this gives me 1er cru vibes despite the more humble "Chablis" designation. In actuality, the source for this bottling sits just below Montée de Tonnerre and when you consider that all of Eleni and Edouard's wines see a little bit of oak, it makes sense. This is wine of great character. It's got lovely citrus leaning fruit with some stone fruits and pomaceous fruit along with a touch of flower honey and a leesy quality that adds palpable texture on the palate. The acid and limestone minerals are there and bring balance to the force. Drinking well now and should continue to do so for many years to come. I wish this was more widely available to me as I would be reaching for it often. Definitely a producer I'm keeping my eye on. Drink now through 2029. — 3 months ago

Great notes, and I'm always searching for wonderful, not classified Chablis. I'm focusing more on whites, particularly Chablis in recent vintages, as we're approaching the half century mark, for future cellar contenders.

I really like what they are doing. I do not drink as much Chablis and lean more to the Chardonnay from Côte de Beaune stylistically, but the Vocoret Chablis have a heft and density that stands out to me.

@Raun Kupiec their deft touch with the oak probably has something to do with it.
