Les Clos Grand Cru Chablis Chardonnay 2014

Stunning. If a wine could be a Viking Warrior this is it. Stoic and intense. Huge nose of intense lime zest and doubly intense oyster minerality. It reeks of minerals. Meyer lemon and lemon candy. Phenomenal nose. Palate is just brilliant. Insane minerality and sweet lime fruit and some sweet Granny Smith Apple as well. So many minerals they appear as sweet. Powerful and structured but also insanely elegant. This is really in a spot. No rush. — 4 days ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Chablis Chardonnay 2009

Intense color, vivid yellow with an almost green tinge. Smells like Raveneau- limpid gooseberry and chalky minerality. On the palate quite ripe and forward, lacking the cut and complexity of the cru’s, but very pretty and balanced. — 5 days ago

I’m sure. I don’t think the 09’s were the best for Raveneau for my palate, but this was fun and certainly had house style

Le Domaine d'Henri Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes Chardonnay 2014

Spectacular! A tad reductive. Racy, oceanic, floral,’salt-preserved lime character with lemon curd, menthol and savory herb flavors. This is what Chablis is all about. — 6 days ago

Part 1 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people.

Very much a softness to this wine. Seems to be in a perfect spot. Not overly sharp, but refined. The bright tropical fruits are honeyed and secondary notes of wet rock, and sea salt. Gorgeous. Bravo

Extraordinary. I had more of this than any other white in SA. It almost made me forget the disappointment of not seeing either a porcupine or an armadillo on the trip.

Brilliant wine. Seashells, seashore and even some Sally. Mineral but also sweet lime pith. White flowers as well. Palate has loads of acidity but also very clean fruit and salinity for days. Long and super refined on the finish. In a great place. — 8 days ago

Domaine Jean Dauvissat Pere & Fils

Chablis Premier Cru Cote de Lechet Chardonnay 2014

Fantastic. Richness. Citrus. Mineral. Dense. Wow. Bought from Fass Selections. ... getting better. This is just a really dense masterpiece. Served with Thai chicken curry and more than holding its own. .. . Pretty much maxxing out on the deliciousness scale. Very good complexity but a tick behind the deliciousness or this would be even better. — 12 days ago

Coteau de Fontenay Chablis Chardonnay 2016

More open and overtly aromatic initially than the other 2016s from Piuze. Showing some ripe orchard fruit as well as citrus, slightly more color and viscosity- I’m guessing there was some very subtle micro oxygenation. Oak is all neutral and is adding some texture to the mostly briny, oceanic finish. Slightly herbal note on the nose and the finish suggesting fennel or anise. — 11 days ago

de Moor has got Chablis on lock. The house style is as consistent as it comes and they deal with vintage issues with great creativity and grace. Proper natural wines, that aren’t even f’ed up. — 5 days ago

Domaine William Fèvre

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Nose of a flinty lemon, palate has a wee bit of tropical fruit peeking out, oak is blowing off still. I'll update my notes as the wine opens.

Two hours in the wine is revealing.

Nose has waxy citrus skin, struck flint inside a new oak barrel that's also filled with grapefruits.

Palate has papaya, clean crushed minerals, bruised golden delicious apple, fading oak with limestone dust. Long finish, medium acidity.
