9.2

Terrific, bright nose of apple, spice, minerals. So clean. Palate is juicy, clean, tart lime fruit, very mineral and great length. Really good density and depth. This was my fave Bourgogne Blanc before Brisset came along. Much better than my last bottle. — 3 days ago

Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2016

Yellow fruit, still very nice, good freshness and acidity, with a certain roundness and richness but well balanced. Nice wine again and no early evolution like I encountered with a few of the Generic white burgundy of that domaine. 89-90

Fruits jaunes, Encore une fois très bien, Belle fraîcheur avec une bonne acidité et une certaine rondeur et richesse mais sans excès. Savoureux et pas de signes d’évolution prématurée comme certaine cuvées de Bourgogne générique du domaine sur 2016 et 2017. 89-90

Chevalières Meursault Chardonnay 2018

This wine is super nuanced and it really took on different notes throughout the evening depending on airtime, temp, and pairing. My favorite was after it had a good deal of airtime and was closer to room temp. I went back and checked old notes. It paired favorably in past to ‘17 Lafon. This bottle did not quite get there. Maybe it’s me but experiencing a lot of white burg bottle variation — 6 days ago

Vaudésir Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

Very nice once again, fine, elegant, fresh, lightly chiseled, the attack and middle of the palate is great and of the level of a GC, the finish has a slight sourness that prevents me from noting higher.

Encore un beau Moreau, frais, fin, ciselé et élégant surtout pour l’attaque et le millieu de bouche de niveau GC, la finale a un petit bemol avec des notes amers un peu agaçantes mais l’ensemble est très bien. 90-91

Domaine Leflaive

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1992

Tasted blind. Medium gold. Rich, “wow” nose... has a noticeable power that is a step above the other whites tonight. Lots of lemon and citrus, some gravel stone and dirt, tan spice, white acacia flowers. Later some creme brûlée thing pops in. The experience goes on and on for hours. Has an amazing level of balance... fruit, richness, complexity and structure. Again shows us this is an all time white. We all nailed our guess on this beauty by the process of deduction and the obvious quality of this amazing, in great condition juice. — 5 days ago

Vaillon Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

As usual, very nice wine by Fabien Moreau, just enough richness and roundness to go with the Nice acidity despite the warm vintage, elegant, classy and balanced. 90-91

Comme d’habitude, un beau Chablis tout en équilibre et sans excès, une belle tension supportée par juste assez de richesse et de rondeur, malgré le millésime chaud, très beauMoreau encore une fois.

Sous Roche Dumay Saint Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

Lyle Fass
9.5

This blows away my last bottle. So pure. So precise on the nose. A sick sense of richness and also insane minerality. Best aromas on any St. Aubin ever. Deep. This nose has woodsmoke. Confectionary. Super stones. Insane concentration and purity. So refined and classy. Super saline and has that mineral sweetness and intensity. Balance and class that is always there with Brisset. What intensity. Incredible mineral wash on the finish. So so clean. Just a brilliant bottle of wine. Maybe 9.6. 9.5 now. — 8 hours ago

Hameau de Blagny Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Wow. Awesome.

Nose is iodine. Mineral. As this opens you get controlled richness.

Palate is controlled richness. Lemon zest. Dense. Mineral. Wonderful.

Some green apple skin as it opens.

An hour in this is the real deal. Elegantly rich. Dense. Blind would guess grand cru. Wow. This is sick. Effing sick.

Domaine Ramonet

Bienvenue Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1992

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Tight nose. Some apricot and lemon, but not giving much like the other whites despite it having ample air time. Has lots of fruit and power inside, but there is a slight taint that comes and goes that hides this wine’s true self. It came around though and showed better before it was polished off. Hugely enjoyable but just a touch off. — 7 days ago
