Burgundy Chardonnay

Janotsbos

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

A darn good value, if not quite at the extraordinary quality level of the ‘13. Nose has straw-laced Chardonnay fruit accented with melted butter-drizzled Burgundian gravel. Soft and mouthfilling. Pretty good concentration but is a little looser than the 13 version as the acids are there but are softer than many 14s. Hard to complain however at a mid-$20s price point (if I am remembering correctly). — 3 days ago

My favorite Belgian transplant in Mersault, a very generous and knowledgeable man.

Patrick Piuze

Terroir de Courgis Chablis 2018

Almost opulent for aPiuze Chablis, this wine balances its bracing acidity with delicate white flowers, nectarine, green apple and a whiff of flinty smoke (but not even a whisper off oak). Nice balance, medium finish and a lingering steeliness that is so speaking with good. Already accessible and thoroughly enjoyable — 11 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Nose has lemon candy, lemon peel and moist limestone.
Palate has lemon flesh, (light) tangerine flesh, lemon pith, faint saline notes and medium finish.
Solid Costco bottle, buy recommend at ~$18. Slightly more depth than the 2016, as 2017 was a standout vintage for Chablis.

Domaine Nicolas

En Chevrot Saint Romain Chardonnay 2018

The 2018, while young, blows me away again! How can this only be €20!!! I need to stop writing about it, so it doesn’t appreciate, but damn it’s so good! See previous notes of prior vintages. — 3 days ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

The 2016 Jean-Marc Roulot Bourgogne Blanc is a stunning new release from this storied Mersault based estate which was first founded in 1930. Soft and inviting on the mouth, the wine slowly unveils layers of tart green apple, vanilla cream, hazelnut and fresh starfruit.
The sense of finesse, elegance and length is very appealing, as the near minute long finish completes this gorgeous bottling. While a fantastic bottle to savor now, the 2016 Jean-Marc Roulot Bourgogne Blanc will enjoy another fifteen years in the cellar. Drink 2019-2033- 92

My third bottle of this wine in the last two weeks (first was another ‘10, and the other was a ‘14) and both were victims of premox. This was mostly all there, though there was a hint of premox starting to show. Notes of lanolin, hint of butterscotch, brown sugar, and lemon oil on the nose. The palate and finish had notes of powdered lemon bars and limestone. Deep in color. Pure. — 7 days ago

This wine always overdelivers for the price point lemon, green apple and plenty of minerality!! And it’s perfect with oyster stew ❤️😋 — 10 days ago

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

Always the class of the 1er cru at Dampt and man is this a smoker. Gorgeous nose of pear, apple, intense salty iodine, gorgeous ocean air, confectionary minerality. Palate is superb with wonderful texture and richness and lovely crunch. So clean and pure with racy acidity and freshness and awesome explosiveness. Concentrated and balanced with a long salty finish with terrific crunch and texture. So pure and ripe but with just insane freshens. So long and persistent. A star. — 8 days ago

Exceptional as always. Pale yellow gold with a slightly reduced nose of gunsmoke, lemon and yellow apple. Opened up beautifully over and hour plus and really gained weight. Mineral driven and no signs of premox. Yummmm — 3 days ago
