Burgundy, France

Jean-Jacques Morel

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

2018; Beeswax, yellow apple, green hay, still quite primary. Decanted 2H, notes and score tomorrow.

24H Update:
Nose has warmed lemon pie, burning beeswax candle, bruised yellow apple, saline solution and wet, grassy notes.
Palate has warmed lemon slice, dried pineapple, dehydrated apricots and candied lemon.

Possibly a compromised bottle, will check another soon.

48H Update:
These wines need patience...Finally returning to how we remember.
Nose has tart green apple, honeycomb and grassy notes.
Palate has dried pineapple, candied lemon and dehydrated stonefruit (apricot or peach).
Lovely; Score change 90>91.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Pear, lemon, pineapple, wet rocks, creamy but not buttery, some caramel on the finish; something flowery too. Nice tingle on the midpalate. — 2 days ago

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

Lyle Fass

Classic Dampt Lechet nose. Seashells. Minerals. Green apple skins. So aromatic. So classic. Just classic. I can’t stop saying classic. Palate is rich but energetic and has nice cut. 19 is kind of almost riper than 18 on this bottling which is weird. Salty finish and tons of mineral depth and lovely acid structure. Ideally better in 5 years. Serious grip and intensity here. Great length, depth, power and concentration. Even some finesse. But this is a beast. A salty beast. Love it — a day ago

Domaine Bersan

Bourgogne Cotes D'Auxerre Chardonnay 2020

Pear, white flowers, crushed rocks and gun powder on the nose. On the palate the pear is in front but there is a nice acid drive making the wine rather vertical and vivid. The finish is fresh with pear notes and a bit of chalky mouthfeel. That's a good effort! — a day ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Pop and pour. I was expecting to adore this wine, as I have all of the last 5 or 6 vintages, but this btl was underwhelming. On the nose: solid minerality and lemon oil, with a hint of struck match reduction, but also a disturbing hint of bruised apple. On the palate: lovely acidity, sweet apple and lemon, some soft wet stone, and good density on the tangy finish. If this btl is representative (which is totally unclear at the moment), then I far preferred the '16 and '18 at a comparable stage..maybe even a step behind the '17, which I found too oak dominant at the same age... — 14 days ago

Interesting note on the much lauded 2019s and the comparison of recent vintages.

This was very tart to start. I decanted it and sealed the bottle and tried again 4 days later. Quite nice. Red fruited. — 8 days ago

Punches way above it’s cost. Acid is Chablis like and could even pass as one. — 4 days ago

Oncle Vincent Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

2017; Mother's Day 2022.

Raiding the wine cooler at my parent's house. Many bottles we've gifted them over the years sit patiently, as they barely drink wine anymore... 🤷🏻‍♂️

This bottle is in a great zone, the inexpensive '17 Burgundy blanc's are quite enjoyable now.

@Ron R Yeah, we've slowly stocked that thing with bottles we like and thought they would too... So I'm not bringing much over there anymore, but basking in the riches so to speak.

Domaine Georges Roumier

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

Initially somewhat reticent but after the hour mark this beauty totally turns the corner and opens up to flaunt a seductive bouquet of mineral laced raspberry fruit, licorice and fresh violets. The palate is expansive and succulent with a beautiful texture and notably impressive depth and length for ‘simple’ Bourgogne. Most importantly, it’s so Roumier and the wonderful 2019 vintage is shown here in spades, a combination of ripeness, purity and definition that is going to age especially gracefully. — 15 days ago

Domaine Moutard-Diligent

Bougros Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

Yellow amber to antique gold developing in this 8 year old beauty. Nose showing pineapple and baked lemon, green onion and lemon bread. Lemon pith opening on the palate with lime peel, lemon zest and briny cucumber. Kumquat sharpness, white grapefruit, bitter orange, kefir lime. Not cellared, so rapid age expected, still a lovely treat.
