La Boudriotte Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019


Sharp, concentrated, taut. Reduced slightly in the beginning but unfurls slowly with notes of Meyer lemon, chalk, unripe pineapple, acacia, orange blossom and a hint of smoke. Fantastic effort, promises slightly more rounded notes as the oak integrates with time. — 7 months ago

Domaine & Selection

Meursault Chardonnay 2006

Last bottle of the trip, taken to Napua at the Mauna Lani. Canary gold color, bright and cheery in the glass. Notes of citrus and kiwi, tropical fruit, wet stones, tan spice, vanilla and white acacia flowers. Rich and glycerol in the mouth, matched with serious acidity. Paired perfectly with a nice Onaga fresh catch, which turned out to be the best prepared fish dish of the trip. Young but drinking well. Aloha! — a year ago

@Mike Saviage sounds like a lovely trip!


Carneros Chardonnay 1987

A touch of butterscotch on the nose. Light gold in color. Some mineral notes and a touch apricot. Resolved and mature… but still glossy and complete with sweet edges. — 3 months ago

I love the old Acacia wines

Domaine Huet

Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2019

This lovely wine comes off as only off dry due to the very high acidity. Well structured with medium body and a silky texture
Loads of lemon, green apple, pear, wet stone, Melon, acacia, pineapple, white pepper and beginning to show tertiary characters like honey, baked apple
Very good quality and will last for years.

Meursault Chardonnay 2018


Pronounced nose of Meyer lemon, acacia, quince, hint of white peach and vanilla. Wonderful acidity that offsets the generally fruity notes. Missing a little salinity on the palate that is very primary and leads with lemon and peach. Awesome juice. — 2 years ago
