Certainly one of the absolute best 1er crus in Chassagne, 2018 La Romanée from Dancer is superb tonight, of Grand Cru quality and particularly exceptional for the vintage. It’s bouquet is layered with ripe stone fruit, white flowers, toasted hazelnut and attractive reduction and its deeply concentrated palate has incredible vibrancy and lift, totally in focus and elegantly textured, giving way to a notably long mineral inflicted finish. Fantastic bottle. — 3 days ago
minerals, clean on nose
-creamier finish once open, more lemon curd but still very bright, minerality
-very complex, with more time getting more sugars and honey — 12 days ago
Light gold color, youthful appearance in the glass. Great CC nose with notes of citrus, ginger, reddish clay, wet stones and tan spice. Fruit still very present, matched against some fine-grained acidity. Awesome mouth feel. I know some of these can go south sooner rather than later, but this was right in the zone - youthful with plenty of energy. Great showing tonight. — a day ago
Shrimp scampi and bitter greens salad. Nice body, luscious mouth feel with citrus and apple notes. Touch of oak on the finish. — 12 hours ago
Nose has smashed chalk, old seashells, nondescript wood smoke, day old lime zest and cold lemon wedges.
Palate has gentle lime and lemon notes, oyster shell with tart apple lingering into the finish.
Another wonderful bottle of Chablis AC from Fabien. (91-92 points) — 17 days ago
Always one of my favourite bottles in the Beaujolais-Bourguignon style. Crunchy, fine notes, a jovial and sophisticated wine. Ready to drink, can also age.
Toujours l’une de mes bouteilles préférées dans le style Beaujolais-Bourguignon. Du croquant,des notes fines, un vin jovial et sophistiqué. Prêt à boire, peut également vieillir. — 19 days ago
Wow. This is good.
Nose is mineral and saline. Lemon peel. Classic Chablis but on the intense side.
Palate is mineral. Some lemon pith but the lovely integrated richness is what makes this great. Lovely internal aromatics. Almost an aerated mineral made from lemon.
Finish is pleasantly bitter (lemon pith).
