Burgundy Chardonnay

Domaine François Raveneau

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2000

Depending on who you speak to, 2000 may or may not be a good Chablis vintage, but this wine certainly falls in the latter. And definitely drinking better than the 2010 Butteaux had on the same day.

Pure chalk, lanolin, lemon, and a cheesy savourines. As it opens up with air, Butteaux struts it's power. The concentration and texture is quite impressive. Floral perfume, lime zest, orange peel, honey, stony minerality, subtle creaminess. Another top effort by the king of Chardy. Power with elegance!

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2009

Decanted about 3 hours.

Nose has baked golden apple, cold beeswax, waxy citrus rind, subtle green banana peel, chalky paste and warmed pineapple.

Palate has citrus-vanilla, fresh cut yellow apple, lightly smoked pineapple and dried citrus peel.

A beautiful wine this evening, but the mid palate seems lacking. The third time we've had this same bottle this year, I think it's in decline, drink up in the next few years before the oxidative effects likely settle in.

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1994

bought on release and well-stored, but passed over for opening because, well, it’s a 94. But Jeremy’s frequent experiences with lesser vintages and I’m glad I did. It’s near spectacular. Brisk bright acidity, menthol and mint, reminds me of a Ramonet. Lean delicious fruit and superb balance. Very grand cru, very much Chevalier. I like! — 2 days ago

Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1993

Nice medium gold color; bright and heavy in the glass. Killer nose immediately. Bullseye. Only a bouquet that older white burg can give. Notes of sweetened lemon, gravel stone, dry earth, orange sauce and some apricot. Really big in the mouth with the first sip. Rich and expanding. Structure, acidity build over 6 hours with mouth coating fruit that is always present. Maybe the best white I’ve had this year, which is saying something. — 9 days ago

Domaine Bruno Clair

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2005

This pulled through. We feared premox from the color but the wine filled out after about 30 minutes. Acid was there, and eventually kind of a pear compote along with cheese rind and saline. A wine that improved for about 2 hours and then started to fade at the very end. Nice, subtle, not a blockbuster. Drink if you have. CT — 6 days ago

This was $14 by the glass and a total winner for that price. A touch sweet on the front and mid palate with candied almonds, cinnamon roasted cashews and honey suckle but the finish fell off pretty quick. Very little yeast, and pretty much zero chalk or limestone to it. — a day ago

Kimmeridgien Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015

Our house Bourgogne Blanc for cooking of all sorts. This evening it's a base for a sauce as we're cooking down a whole, local chicken in the slow cooker. After about 8-hours the bird practically falls apart when you look at it, Chardonnay might help. — a day ago

Domaine & Selection

Meursault Chardonnay 2007

Domaine Coche Dury is arguably the most sought after internationally of white Burgundy domains according to Jasper Morris MW in his tome “Inside Burgundy “. This wine had aromas of Lemon and Citrus flowers. On the palate Lemon juice - lean with mineral and M plus acidity. In hindsight should have left this last one for a few years. A wine of restraint and elegance - a tinge of honey after a while. For the Coche Dury village style only 25% new wood is used. This wine rarity was suggested to me years ago by a former owner of Prince Wine store and Burgundy nut Phillip Rich. Must seek out later vintages. — 7 days ago
