Les Choisilles Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2020 Les Choisilles offers a floral and pear-like aromatic character. It's round and ripe with good grip on the finish, which could be a result of the vintage having had little juice in it; the wines have excellent structure and fruit purity. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, September 2022)

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

DAY 1
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry

Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish

Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

Les Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Hard to beat PYCM with the menu at Jônt. I love the Charmes site and 2014 is wide open, with just a touch of flinty reduction, but it’s all about its purity of yellow fruit that’s complimented by ripping citrusy acids, hazelnut and a hint of vanilla cream. Its supremely concentrated and dense palate shows great structure, power and a balanced stony minerality. This is still a baby but already evolving wonderfully. Great bottle. — 3 months ago

Les Tuffeaux Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

$35. And well balanced acid and sugar as one would expect from a first rate Loire producer, essentially a Vouvray — 9 months ago

La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2020

Lovely, zesty weight to this, pretty electric as it evolved over 1.5-2hrs, yellow into orange fruit on the edge of the palate. Impressive length. — a month ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Lemon and lees! Reductive at first and needed time to open up. Not too young which was a relief. High acid with medium body — 3 months ago
