Chablis, Burgundy

Domaine Sebastien Dampt

Terroir de Milly Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Nose has white florals, moist ocean sand, green apple peel and lemon zest.

Palate has tart apple, warm lemon, light saline solution, green hay and moist sand/clay pottery.

Medium body, mineral drive is excellent and runs through the complete finish. I would suggest this vineyard site has a good mix of clay soils which appear to soften the palate slightly, quite enjoyable. Decanted 60m.

Paired with grilled steelhead trout, delicious.

Thanks @Lyle Fass Nothing petit about either of these wines.

Domaine Servin

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Rich but mineral-driven, with a nose haunted by an old Yquem. Incredibly expressive and multidimensional, with light tropical fruit, shellfish and neat salinity. Seek this out. — 2 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

A delicate nose. Slate, rock pools, saline. Precise, restrained and structured. Almost muscadet-like in its understatement. Very good, but quiet. — 4 days ago

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Popped and poured at a social gathering. No formal notes. In the glass, a striking greenish gold. The nose is intense suggesting a wine of real verve…and it was. Effusive, bright tropical fruit, star fruit, apricot, cheese, and minerals. This wine is so well endowed with fruit! That being said, there is tremendous acid too. My WOTN enjoyed with a handful of other Chablis. — 16 days ago

Domaine Sebastien Dampt

Terroir de Fye Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Nose has dried seashells, lemon peel, white pepper and sliced lemon.

Palate has salted lemon wedge, dehydrated green apple and wet, crushed seashells.

Medium body, mineral drive is excellent and runs through the complete finish. I would suggest this vineyard site has a majority of calcareous soils. Decanted 60m.

Paired with grilled steelhead trout, delicious.

I kind of feel like I robbed you...! Great stuff.

Domaine François Raveneau

Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

A wonderful nose. Limpid wet rocks, gentle lime, salty notes. Very raveneau- subtle but powerful with that distinctive. Kinda haunting... really broad and long. Minerality but all gently woven. Great stuff. — 7 days ago

Bienommée Chablis Chardonnay 2018

Popped and poured at a social gathering. No formal notes but this was a steely wine; all about the minerals and acid. The finish was a touch savory which I found quite nice. Not the most expressive but certainly refreshing. — 16 days ago

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2001

Medium gold. Heavy in the glass. Gorgeous nose. Notes of sea breeze, sea shells, wet stones, white acacia flowers and some honey. Massive fruit and acidity in the mouth. Great texture and mouth feel. Everything you could ask for in a Chablis… ready to drink now but easily has 10+ years in front of it. Loved this! — 3 days ago

Jean et Sébastien Dauvissat

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

I’ve had this bottle sitting in my cellar pretty much since I got back from Riyadh, nearly 7 years ago. I’m not really sure why I held onto it as long as I did but whatever. It’s open now. In the glass, the wine pours a brilliant, deep golden color. A fully mature wine at this point with a whole host of secondary and tertiary characteristics on the nose: toasted bread, apricot marmalade, feta cheese, nuts, Vanilla Tootsie Roll (the blue wrapper), sour dough, desiccated tropical fruit, warm asphalt, and alfalfa. A truly strange combination but it’s all there, whether you want it to be or not. On the palate, dried apricot, flan, and cashews. Medium acid. The finish is long. At this later stage of its life, the 2010 Jean & Sebastien Dauvissat “Vaillons” is not a wine for everyone as there will no doubt be folks who’s palate will not agree with the oxidative character of the wine. That being said, I found it rather charming. Drink now. — 16 days ago

Chablis Vieilles Vignes Chardonnay 2017

This may be the best straight Chablis AOC I’ve had. Classic nose has copious amounts of ripe, apply fruit, loads of fresh, homemade brothy notes, and sweet crushed, moist limestone minerality. Packed with flavor and intensely minerally in the mouth. Just round-textured liquid stones. Nice acids for a modern era Chablis. Lip-smackingly intense. What a value. Wish I got more of this. — 14 days ago
