Burgundy Chardonnay

Domaine des Marrans

Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay 2016

2016 Burgundy... Do I need to say more? It's slamming good!

Nose is a saline solution with sweet green apple and light oyster shell.
Palate is incredible balanced acidity with Anjou pear and this ever lingering saline finish.

For certain, one of the best BoJo blancs to ever grace my glass!

Happy Valentine's Day 2019 to all.

24hr Update: Nose has subsided slightly, but the palate is going strong and picking up minor red fruit (strawberry) notes. I tend to pick up those red notes only in Chardonnay from Beaujolais, after about a day or two after opening, interesting.

@Lyle Fass Holy shit, thank you!


Montmains Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay 2014

Aromas of stone fruits with a crisp citrus edge surrounded by herb scents. On the palate ripe fruit flavors of peach & apple with honey tones, savory with good balance. Lingering finish ending with citrus mineral character. Nice now, small production 600 cases made. — 7 days ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

Nice golden hue, looks heavy and rich in the glass. Honeyed fragrant nose. Notes of sweet apricot, mango, lemon, white clay, tan spice, and stones. Nice intensity in the mouth, with gobs of fruit matched against acidity that built over the afternoon. Telltale aged Raveneau honey, exotic today but not over the top. I brought this and it was the best of the couple or so bottles of it that I've had. Was at its best with ~5 hours of air, and leftover was still singing the next morning. — 13 days ago

Les Grandes Coutres Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Grapes from 3 plots bordering Meursault, vines up to 50 years old. Aromas of elegant ripe fruits with slight toasty notes. On the palate rich melon and lemon flavors with vanilla and creamy oak notes surrounded by a great mouthfeel. Lingering ending with fruit adding some mineral freshness. Very nice. Great value. — 6 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

QPR alert 🚨!

Nose has light florals, fresh lemon peel and wet limestone.
Palate has sweet (not tart) lemon, (too) light acidity and light mineral/saline finish.

This was $18 at our Costco. I was intrigued when I saw this vintage, it easily drinks like established Chablis at ~$25. No one should hesitate to buy at least a bottle or two, or more.

Picking up a white peach note the longer the wine is open, nice. 👍

@Dawn E. Yes, anything for 2016 is a buy. Only flaw, for me, on this is the light acidity, I wanted more than what was delivered, otherwise great bottle for the price.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Very nice
The oak is not overwhelming but it is supporting the fruit
Long finish, maybe not a great complexity

Domaine Laroche

Les Vaillons Vieilles Vignes Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

The Vieille Voye vineyard was planted before the 16th century by the Pontigny abbots, who named it after the old Roman road that connected Burgundy with Champagne. This single Vineyard is a big step above their entry level wine. Nose of ripe fruit with sweet spice. On the palate ripe peach and tropical fruit and sweet spice coming from 11 months of oak aging. Lingering finish, lively acidity ending with chalky mineral tones. Tasting Sample. — 13 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2012

Nose has flinty pineapple, ripe mango, moist light oak and white flowers.
Palate has warm stone fruit mash, incredible passion fruit mousse, chalky-ripe yellow peach, light on the acidity, but incredibly long finish.
Solid wine but the acidity of the 2013 version (previously posted) is missing. 😐

Photos from our visit to Jadot from the Spring of 2018, the red wine barrel room packed full-full-full of 2017's, the ceiling of their fermentation room of all wood structure with massive/beautiful spans, the wood vats used for initial processing of new red fruit and our bottle of the evening. I wish we could have tasted any vintage of this wine when we visited, but alas it didn't make it into our lineup.

A great vintage and stupidly good with Hedy’s Melted Racklette Confit Potatoes with smoked olive oil. What a pair!!!

If you enjoy this young, over chill and decant one hour. It needs it and it vastly improves.

Hedy is our good friend and is a chef who would earn 1-2 Michelin Stars should she choose to open a restaurant but, wishes not to do. Check out Hedy’s Pop Up Dinner business @plate&bottle on Facebook.

January 22nd notes apply.
