Burgundy Chardonnay

Domaine Louis Moreau

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

I’m drinking this young, but local wine guy said it would be fine. Almost white in color with a very subtle gold tone. Big citrus, grassy nose and virtually no oak. If having blind and solely based on the nose I would have guessed Sauv Blanc not Chablis. Pineapple and subtle coconut on the palate. Shortish finish with a decent amount of tartness. Not bad, but not wowing by any means. Definitely give it some time. — 8 days ago

Les Genouvrées Bourgogne Controlée Chardonnay 2015

This stuff pulses through my veins. Gorgeous nose. Very mineral but generous. Palate is just so good. Rich, Ripe and elegant with good acidity and terrific freshness from the minerality. So clean and very pure. — 11 days ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Blanchot Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2009

First time having Raveneau. Surprisingly restrained on the nose, but this has excellent balance and depth on the palate. Seemingly “simple” at first, this reveals layers of flavor with perfectly balanced acid and a very very long finish. — 16 hours ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

I think I may be rating this higher than it should be, but for a chardy to hold its ground against some of the world's best riesling... That's a great feat. Only Rav... Only Rav...

NB: Blinded against the 17' G-Max and 15' Hubacker. Guess it helps that Vaillon tends to be the more "finessed" plot for Raveneau, if that even makes sense 🤣

Bouchard Père et Fils

Réserve Bourgogne Chardonnay

Derek Brammer's Staff Selection, Fall 2014: “Often customers will ask me to recommend a full-bodied white wine Bouchard Pere & Fils was founded in 1731, and has aquired many prominent estates over the years. Today, Bouchard is the largest owner of premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote d'Or, Burgundy's most famous area, and is one of the largest and most well known producers in France. This 100% Chardonnay is blended from some of their own vineyards and some from negociants in the region. Delicate aromas of apple, peach and pear arise from the glass with lovely floral touches to enhance the palate. Full-bodied, crisp, and clean, it strikes a nice balance between the minerality of the terrior and the acidity of the fruit. A perfect wine for fish, seafood and fowl dishes. Especially wonderful at Thanksgiving.”

Lucien Le Moine

Sous Frétille Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

Сливочное масло, айва, лимонный курд, помело, кленовый сироп, ароматные травы, белый перец. Увесистое тело с мощной, но естественной концентрацией. Объемно и глубоко. Вначале много дуба и жира, бесстыжей спелости, удачно поддерживаемых серьёзной структурой. На второй день тяжесть уходит, но вес остаётся, становится больше свежести и цитрусово-зелёных обертонов, выразительность и экспрессия обретают гармоничность. — a day ago

Croix aux Moines Chablis Chardonnay 2013

Lovely pommier funk on the nose. Flint, flowers, mineral, lime zest, lovely purity. Palate is ripe and generous with lovely purity and a slightly short finish. Nice. Was a hard vintage but this is a nice wine. — 2 days ago

Quintessential, astoundingly expressive and aging tremendously well, this may not be emblematic of most 2007 Chablis. I’m definitely on Team Dauvissat. — a day ago

Vincent Dancer

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2011

Pale in color; slightly waxy, lime rind, white flower. Excellent vibrant acid balance with a layered texture and full body. A delicate almond note on long finish suggests drink up but this was in great shape overall. Dancer has a wonderful touch with CH.
