Ravishing and complex despite the humble appellation. Aromas of Meyer lemon, spiced pear, hazelnut, vanilla bean and honey. Grilled pineapple flavors on the mid palate with salted caramel and wet stones on the finish. The saline lemon flavors echo throughout. Both voluminous and supple, showing ample ripe fruit but retaining a refined sense of nerve and minerality. One of the most thoroughly seductive and satisfying white Burgundy experiences I’ve had in a long time for less than $30, but certainly it is wonderful regardless of price point. — 6 days ago
Really quite a wine. Palate expanding in the best way, just don’t think I’ve had non Chablis white Burgundy of this quality before. Appearance is a deep dark lemon yellow. Unbelievable nose with a ton of depth and with a lot of white peach and some spicy notes. On the palate this is very mouth filling but still super precise. Loads of flavor waves over the tongue. Finish is crazy long and the acid level is obviously quite high but manages to express that while still staying very balanced. Perfect with a ”Zuni cafe” style roast chicken on a Sunday night. — 5 days ago
Simply splendid village Bourgogne, this is a lovely wine that is definitely more complex and rich than expected with appealing notes of vanilla, oak, minerals, hint of tropical fruit and citrus, medium body, smooth, round creamy, delicious fresh finish. Simply elegant and pleasant. My score 89, drink to 2022 — 6 days ago
The 2016 Vaillons Chablis is a simply brilliant showing from Dauvissat, who has a reputation for producing some of the finest Chablis in the region and there is no exception in this difficult vintage. As this gorgeous wine slowly unwinds in the glass it releases pretty aromas of orchard and citrus fruits, followed by orange zest, honey blossoms and pulverized stones. It goes on to impress as it displays wonderful overall purity and focus through a beautifully textured palate and remarkably precise finish. Overall this is a marvelous wine that is showing wonderful energy and appeal in its youth, but should also evolve beautifully for years to come. — 10 days ago
Pale lemon with medium intensity aromas of stone and citrus fruits with slight biscuit notes. On the palate apple, lemon, lime fruit with notes of wet stone and warm bread. Medium finish ending a bit creamy with mineral notes. Very Good now but can get better over short term bottle age. — 4 days ago
Unreal dark butterscotch or honey color. Marcona almonds and honeycomb on the nose with a very slight hint of citrus. I don’t think I have ever had a 24 year old white wine. Nice flavors of lemon on the front with butterscotch and honey flavors evolving mid-palate. Beautiful acidity with a very pleasant honey finish. Celebrating my birthday tonight and this wine was fantastic. — 2 days ago
Les Ménétrières is a one-hectare, southeast-facing vineyard with one third of the vines 40-years-old, one third 20-years, and a third are 10-years which are planted on shale in the upper half of the vineyard and pearly slabs in the lower half. The soils here are composed of alluvial deposits, layered with a sub-soil consisting of limestone and limestone marl streaks, with top layers rich in stone-free limestone deposits and light marls. These mineral rich soils greatly reflect in the 2012, which shows gorgeous streaks of minerality woven together with stunning aromas of Asian pear, white peach, lemon zest, almond, smoke, saline and a spicy floral character. It continues to impress as it expands on the palate with its lovely oily texture, which is beautifully cut by wonderful acidity that carries on through the delicious, mineral laced finish. Today, the Les Ménétrières seems to be the most complete and compelling wine I have tasted from the Domaine in this vintage. It is already showing tons of character and I only expect it to further evolve in the bottle — 10 days ago
I love this site. Pierrick’s debut vintage. What a debut. What a nose. Super mineral and deep nose. A hint of honey, ripe apple. Bosc pear. Huge fruit complexity as well. As it airs huge spice and sense of gout de terroir. Wow. Super spice. Only 547 bottles made! So much mineral and spice. Elegant and a sense of deepness. Palate is a smokehsow. Wow. Amazing refinement and intense minerality with energy and linearity for days. Super precise. Palate is lemony, rich and ripe with amazing tactile density yet also elegant and finesse driven. Powerful minerality expands on the finish. So so long. This never ends. Incredible. Genius. — 7 hours ago
Entry level from this very famous Burgundy producer. Cost about $20. If you blur your eyes while looking at the bottle and hold your nose while tasting the wine, you can pretend it's the Chambolle-Musigny.
Lovely, zest, white flowers. Bright and appealing. Not complex but perfectly attractive for a casual evening. — 2 days ago
