Fourchaume Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay 2017

9.1

Monthly WTF wine group tasting. This month’s theme was chardonnay from any region or vintage. Nice eclectic bunch! All wines tasted blind.

@Delectable Wine : This is the Fourchaume bottling from this producer. I didn’t see it in the database.

Very classical. Tasting this side by side with the Mersault was fun not only because they were so different, but because of how they evolved. This one stayed true the entire time...very classical. Steely. Just a touch of reductive notes at first. Very pure and concentrated fruit. Lemon, chalky limestone, good acidity (but not razor like). This wine also showed a touch of pink sea salt and grapefruit, which had some people thrown off. I guessed Chablis.

@Mike R : It was! We are hoping to do a big style SB tasting in the summer. I’ll have to get some of those Onda SBs!

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Happy Valentine's Day!!!....Hog Island oysters shipped overnite and shucked by me.
Pop and pour. A brilliant light golden color. On the nose: floral, tangerine, minerals, and a little grapefruit. Taste: A dry light body with pear, minerals, and lemon peel. Went nicely with the fresh oysters!

Monts Mains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

Limpid oyster shells and steely fruit. Quite hauntingly delicate on the nose with a lovely saline savory midpalate. Really poised and delicious. Excellent. — a day ago

Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

A gorgeous nose. All oyster shells, limestone, salinity, hints of lime, greengages, peter. Very poised, saline and cool-blooded. On the palate it is super sophisticated. Very precise floral notes. Rockpool, mellow citrus with super fine balancing acidity. This is deep and profound but pretty light on its feet. A beautiful calm vintage. — 7 days ago

That was our experience. Kind of phoning it in.

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Pale straw in color. Lots of citrus, vanilla and fresh baked bread on the nose. On the palate the citrus shows front and center with tastes of lemon. In addition there is a slight hint of salinity and minerality. This wine is medium bodied with an silky mouthfeel and a long fruit bounded finish. A really good wine. — 7 days ago

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 1996

Straw gold with great weight and heaviness in the glass. Killer nose. Notes of apricot, tan spice, apple cinnamon and sweet honey dew. Impactful in the mouth with lots of acidity and a lasting finish. With 5 hours of air this was singing. — 9 days ago

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Seems a little simple, but its probably just really closed at the moment (especially out of magnum). Full on white florals on the nose, with juicy red apples and briny oysters. Really fruity on the palate with minerality playing second fiddle, although present. There's ample intensity here so I have no doubt this would develop well with cellaring. — 17 days ago

This is wonderful. Concentrated and lean with a crazy nose. Oyster shells, minerality, salinity. Deep fruit but quite precise and delicate. A hint of sandalwood. Great now and life ahead. — a day ago

A brilliant value and brilliant bottle of Chablis. Wide open. What a nose. Deep mineral. Lime pith. Airy. Saline. Seashells. Palate is nervous and tensile with great purity and texture. Almost no fruit. Salty. Good structure and acidity. Such snap, sap and length on this wine. Amazingly well made. Easily 1er Cru quality. So juicy, so dense, so pure. Brilliant. — 12 days ago

La Forest Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Rather muted nose of oyster shell, lemon and flint - awesome evolution on the palate fatty in the middle with a lingering finish. Fantastic. Competes at GC level - this one feels a bit quieter at the start, but its lingering finale completes a perfect picture. Aerate. — 15 days ago
