Grusse en Billat Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2012

Needs a little time to sing. I wasn't really digging the wine when it was first opened. Felt too ripe and rich, especially when compared with the Overnoy. But with air, the Grusse really started showing itself.

Stunning texture and density. Still shows its richness, especially on the mid-palate, but balanced by piercing acidity and lengthy chalkiness. Really toasty and nutty, baked apples, lemon zest, kinda creamy, saline, oyster shell. It's really quite beautiful. Pity there wasn't any left for day 2.

Les Chalasses Vieilles Vignes 2012

This is a truly excellent and soulful wine. I brought under the plane from NYC to Seattle and took to Canlis, where they immediately decanted and came by to give props on the BYO. I loved it right away. It had the nose and presence of a great white burg. Reminded me of Leroy and Roulot. And it kept evolving over two hours, ending up in more of a Raveneau place. Yes I am name dropping but I just had no idea this bottle was gonna bring it so hard. 1902 vines, 2012 vintage, a joy to have consumed and I would say no rush to open if you’re lucky enough to have. — 22 days ago

Arbois Pupillin Chardonnay 2012

This was a delicious pristine bottle, but on this night the Ganevat was simply the better wine. Less complex and dense in comparison, but it certainly has the guts to stand the test of time. Very primary, yellow fruits, pure, leesy. Day 2 and it's super salty, and showing more nutty tones. This really tastes like a good flat champagne! — a month ago
