L'Humeur du Temps Chablis Chardonnay 2015

Sometimes, it’s the challenging vintages that really solidify the reputation of a quality producer. This is a clear example. The roundness of the warm vintage is present, but so is the familiar acid tension playing in the background. Lemon pulp, sea breeze, chalk aromas. Mineral notes are not overshadowed by the weight, finish is crisp, lingering, with toasty briny notes well suited for fish and fried food pairings. Lots of effort and crucial correct decisions were made to produce this wine. — 5 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2013

Nose of mango, pineapple core, medium oak, distant white flowers.

Palate is incredibly smooth and oak influence does not get in the way, great acidity balance, pineapple, pebble-y minerals, evolving more with each sip...

I feel this Chardonnay is drinking just wonderful at 5 years of age. We'll enjoy this with some beautiful salmon, hitting the grill next! A little hard to find Ladoix, but well worth it, seek and be rewarded.

48hr Update: Barely losing a step, wow, practically the same as day one! Absolutely awesome wine.

I'm going to assume there is a rouge version, based on your comment. Not seen that one, I can tell you the blanc is awesome, a few vintages hiding in the cellar, just great stuff after a few years of rest.

I think the village grows way more red than white. @Lyle Fass brings in the best one I’ve had, from Xavier Durand.

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Gorgeous right now. Shimmering with bright acid, lemon oil, juicy peach stone fruit and hint of exotic tropical notes on the mid palate. Toast and hazelnut showing up, and it all greatly intensifies with air. Decadent, charming and fresh all at once. — 3 days ago

Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay

Oh Classique! Or classic. Whichever you please and I drink from the bottle in the pic for effect. In reality I’m decanting the hell out of this. The mineralogy screammmmmms otherwise. Which is not bad I’m into the rocks and gas but I’m more into them when they integrate into Meyer lemons. Vanilla beans (hello PERFECT judicious use of oak) and a whiff of very raw white peach. I almost thought it to be flawed then I gave it air and saw the beauty of the earth on this. It is a strong and strident Chard. Shall I metaphor? Okay. This is the person you meet who you think has a chip on their shoulder then you get to know them and realize that they are simply strong and have perhaps a fucked past they won’t speak of but said past has made them beautiful. And they may get better with age. — 5 days ago

Chablis Premier Cru Cote de Lechet Chardonnay 2015

Super delicious. Great luscious fruit. Hint of grapefruit on the finish. Less in your face acidity and minerality. But a delicious wine in its own right. Bought from Fass Selections. — 2 days ago

Lots of lemon/lime and bright mineral notes. Nice pairing with scallops scampi and stir fried bok choy. More full bodied than other Chablis I’ve had. — 3 days ago

Lucky me - shared a magnum bottle with colleagues the other day. I noticed that I am a big fan of Macon Villages Chardonnay now. They never let us down. — 6 days ago

Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

Thank you to Beverly and Arvind Sodhani for a truly remarkable evening. I shipped a Magnum of Krug Rose for us to enjoy prior to dinner. The Batard Montrachet came from Arvind & Beverly’s personal cellar. It was perfect. I adore this Batard! 😍😘😘😍🙌. This was a glorious prelude to a long evening of wine indulgence. It was definitely a Marathon and not a sprint! Thank God I’ve been training all year for this evening 🤪😂😂🤪.
Thank you so much for a phenomenal evening under the stars! 🌟 💫 🌟 There’s nothing better than dinning outside in Napa during this time of year

Les Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

Decanted for a hour, but still reductive with PYCMs trademark nose of matchstick and flint. Really should have given it another hour to air before pouring because it started opening up in the glass towards the end. Quite saline and bitter on the palate and seems to lack the weight and complexity of a Premier Cru. Rather high acidity and combined with its cool nose, a few guessed St Aubin. — 5 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2005

Hey now! Very lively number from 05. On pop and pour I got no oxidation at all, and a super fresh color. After 40 minutes it started to show its complexity, with great length and pure oyster shell character. Never shifted much beyond that and certainly didn’t fall apart. A well kept bottle purchased for 38 euro in Amsterdam. Great find and very happy!! — 12 days ago
