Chablis Chardonnay

Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils

Clos des Hospices dans les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay

What a great wine and producer that I love. Super elegant and classy nose of yellow fruit with a floral side and some lemon zests. The palate shows ripe fruit but with great acidity to support it and balance that along with the nice richness and roundness of the silky and nicely textured palate, lengthy delicious finish too. Served blind, my wife called Meursault or Puligny 1er cru, which would be a great call, as it does feel more like a great Cote De Beaune. 94-95 pts

Quel vin magnifique. Un nez super élégant, fruits jaunes, touche florale et un peu de zeste de citron. La bouche est superbe, il y a du fruit mur mais aussi une acidité qui équilibre le tout en supportant ce gras et cette rondeur tout en finesse, une longueur impressionnante et une finale magnifique. À l’aveugle, ma femme a dit Meursault 1er cru ou Puligny 1er cru, vrai qu’il fait plus grand vin de Côte de Beaune qu’un Chablis tranchant, mais c’est tellement bon. 94-95

Domaine François Raveneau

Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 1990

Canary gold color, looks young. Memorable nose with notes of lemon, honeysuckle, white acacia blossoms, and white clay with that Kimmeridgian characteristic that says Chablis. With more air, you also get sea shells and ocean breeze, and the telltale Raveneau honey comes out. Coats the mouth... has a huge richness matched against robust structure. This becomes more sweet and exotic as the evening progresses. Of all the bottles tonight, this was gone first. As good as Chablis can get. (Bday 4 of 13) — 10 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Nose is green Apple, citrus, almost lime, rock, has a vegetal quality that Chablis can have sometimes when it’s really minerally strong. Typical salinity there. Rounder than the 2014 and much more approachable. Less acid but acid still moderate. My favorite 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis. — 4 days ago

Unreal nose. Just so beautiful. Huge perfume. Seashells. Oyster shells. Unmistakably Chablis. So so mineral. There is no fruit. An exercise in a blast of terroir so intense you gotta be a wine geek to enjoy it. Salty. White pepper. A perfume that is broad and precise. Really really beautiful. Palate terrific and has some ripe fruit, green apple mostly, a nice hit of richness in the texture, good purity and a lonely initial blast of fruit/mineral concentrate and then the finish is all seashells that linger. Excellent wine for the appellation.

As it airs it picks up weight on the palate. Terrific wine for no money. So salty and fresh.

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

From domaine Laurent Tribut but says Solange Tribut on the label, who is the daughter of Laurent. Delicious Chablis Villages, fresh, salinity, mineral, good tension and balanced too. Gorgeous for that level. 89-90

Solange Tribut sur l’étiquette. Un excellent Chablis Villages, frais, mineral, fin, tension appuyée, délicieux.

A stunner. Power, intensity and flat out electric with dazzling complexity. Shows an intense seashell minerality, salty seafoam, rock moss and stone fruits. Absurdly long and concentrated finish as it coats the palate with seashell and ocean mist. Wonderful. — 6 days ago

Honeyed-but-simple, as I try and try it again- it’s lovely, lovely wine. But it’s just not on the level of other Grand Cru Chablis that I’ve been lucky enough to have a go at. — a day ago

Terrific wine. Both of these Petit Chablis are brilliant for what they are. This nose is floral, more round, more focused, precise and less broad than the Fye. Gorgeous. Incisive and deep. Crunchy, ripe and deep with a stunning texture and palate presence. Pure, textured and deep. Can’t believe this is Petit Chablis. Rich yet fresh, energetic and terrific backend structure. So salty it screams for a dozen oysters. I love Chablis. Both of these wine are why. Small, humble but so awesome because they are Chablis. — 12 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2000

Straw gold color. Grand cru weight in the glass. Bright nose. Notes of lemon and citrus, saline ocean breeze, wet stones, tan spice and a touch of that Raveneau honey. Rich in the mouth but comes across as a bit disjointed as the acidity is a bit lacking vs expectations. Still, it’s a nice quaff with our tuna tartare, and scallops with tomatoes from the garden. — 3 days ago

Lovely nose. Classic Fabien. Saline and seashells galore. High toned and focused. Lime pith but massively mineral. Palate is so pure, so loaded with fresh mineral and seashells it almost comes across as dry Riesling! Palate is super pure, sappy and clean with a lovely compact quality and terrific intensity. Finishes elegant and mineral. A smokeshow as always. — 9 days ago
