Chablis

Domaine Pinson Frères

Mont de Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has seashells, sea spray, fresh strawberries, cold butter or cream, washed lemons, lemon juice and over-ripe green apple.

Palate has lemon creme, (light) strawberry, lemon zest, mild oak, freshly whipped cream and wet flint.

Nice wine, our first time having this particular 1er Cru vineyard, but...the oak, while it is sort of neutral, it is the underlying impact to the palate. I'm thinking they likely do not use new oak, but 2-4 year old barrels, but just a little much for my palate on a Chablis. I'm really a fan of very neutral oak or all stainless steel treatment.

24 Hour Update: Wood notes are gone, all about (light) lemon curd, limestone paste and cut strawberry today, wonderfulness.

Got to meet the wine maker and her husband at a small dinner. Very much enjoyed both of them and their whole wine line up

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2017

Struck match pithy apples for days on the nose. Tart apple on the palate, lemon, fennel and chalk. Long acid blast for a clean zesty finish. — 4 months ago

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Found this wine to be steely, chalky with a hint of mint. All comes together very well. Drinks good now. — 4 months ago

Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier

Chablis Chardonnay 2016

Easy-going, but loaded with Chablis character. Nose has brothiness and crushed sea shell minerality, but show ripe and pure peachy fruit underneath. In the mouth, it’s minerally, savory, and intense, but has decent balance, if not the demanding acids one usually expects. I guess with global warming those expectations will be changing, and soon. — 9 hours ago

Dinner with friends, no formal notes tonight.
Needed some time to come around, but doing great right now! Nice mashed strawberry nose, wet limestone paste, lightly oxidized yellow apple.

Domaine de la Genillotte (Sourice-Depuydt)

Chablis Chardonnay 2016

Very pleasant on the nose with bright floral notes along with green apple and citrus. Round and full on the palette with plenty of lemon notes and minerals mingled with a light touch of butter. Very playful and vivid. It shows a rich and rather persistent aftertaste. QPR is through the roof on this one. — 3 days ago

Vent d'Ange Chablis Chardonnay 2017

A lot more full bodied that I was expecting from a Chablis. Lemon zest, ocean spray, and good volume on the palette. — 19 hours ago

Beauroy Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Flamboyant and punchy—-what’s not to like. First time having this producer. The use of oak was a bit much yet with time that will find its place. — 4 months ago

Slight hint of oxidation that underpins the nose. Yellow raspberry, menthol and a core of white gravel. A special wine. — a month ago
