Chablis, Burgundy

Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2018

This is a tense, energetic glass of excitement laced with citrus & minerals. Some richer notes show on the nose, and the body is on the lighter side. Fresh and bright. Easy to enjoy. — 9 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2000

mountain of thunder indeed—in the zone and it would stay there for another decade (but not this bottle). The depth of flavor and cool menthol tame the wild layers of flavor. With a citrus center, it stays focused while providing a kaleidoscope of flavors. The texture is oh so soft as it lays on the palate and then just drives through into my brain. “Iron fist in a velvet glove” was used to describe claret but it works here. Grand cru in all but name, the finish may get me through the next two weeks of being dry. It just echoed. The term head spinning is apt. — 16 days ago

Great note. When you hit one like this it reminds of the magic behind the obsession

Domaine E.A.R.L. George

Montmains "Les Butteaux" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Chalk, wet stone, lemon, gun powder too. Typical chablis nose, very inviting. Superb palate with a extraordinary balance : a very strong acid drive and a nice width with lemon, and a chalky, soft touch on the sides. This is very wide and shows a bit of a roundness in mid palate before a very long finish with lemon and chalk and some floral, white flower thing. This is very good chablis. — 17 days ago

Domaine Moreau-Naudet

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

Pale Lemon-gold with fragrant aromas of fruit, floral and nutty spices. Aged for 10 months on oak, flavors of apple, lemon peel and pear wrapped in well integrated acidity. Great mouthfeel, well balanced ending complex with fruit, mineral and chalky notes. Tasting Sample. — 7 days ago

La Forest Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Didn’t quite get the racy acidity I remember from my last couple of Dauvissat bottle. Coupe be the vintage of the phase of the bottle but felt a bit oaky and fat. Lemon curd and a bit of salty sea breeze notes. — 9 days ago

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Chardonnay 2017

Super ripe and Really fun. Shy or hidden oak suggests this is 1er Cru. Warm climate for this vintage is an understatement. — 7 days ago

Hautérivien Petit-Chablis Chardonnay 2018

A second steely citrus wine for the weekend. Not as intense as the Etna Bianco we had yesterday, but enough vigor and crispness to cut through leftover risotto and chicken breast on greens. I threw some apple in the salad, and this echoes the freshness. Slightly effervescent on opening, so give it time to air out. 🐞 🟨 — 12 days ago

Les Lys Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Nose is a bit vegetal. Lemon zest.

Palate is perfect. Mineral. A hint of lemon peel. Almost sweet rocks made from lemons. Some clever density.

A Chablis geek wine.

Pattes Loup (Thomas Pico)

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

2014 Vintage. 12% Alcohol. We usually cellar our Chablis longer, but decided to open a younger bottle to avoid potential premox. A wonderful Butteaux, but seemed wanting more acidity for lift. Decent value at $50 compared with the big guns. — 9 days ago

Vincent Dauvissat

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

The nose on lemon, lemon tart, flower and a little bit of apple. On the palate, a sharp attack on lemon zest, sea salt, orchard fruits, a little brioche like champagne. No bitterness. Strong village wine — 11 days ago
