Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Belatedly celebrating @Deked1’s special day with his favorite bottle of bubbles! 🥂🥂

This wine was disgorged in 2017 after aging on the lees in Ruinart’s chalk cellars for a decade. It’s spent the last 5 years in the bottle.

With a pale gold hue, this wine is showing some delicious signs of age, but also remains incredibly vibrant.

It offers a fine mousse with rich notes of lemon curd, flint, hazelnut, marzipan, toast, and brioche. Yas!! 👏🏻 It’s so darn good. We don’t want this bottle to end.

I’m English by birth, so July 4th is not a good look for us. I’ll be keeping a very low profile on that day 🥲

@Ron R Your secret is safe with me 😅

Roux Père & Fils

La Chateniere 1er Cru Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2017

White flower aromas lead with notes of honey and toasted almonds. Hint of baking spices. Ripe Peach, melon and lemon fruit dominate the pallet with a hint of pie dough and those baking spices. Nice long finish and creamy texture. Really developing well with a bit of age. Appreciate you sharing this one, Ron B! — 3 days ago

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2020

Holy Merde! Shy on the nose… light lemon yellow. But real complexity and astonishing balance. Classic brioche, lemon, ripe red apple, ripe juicy pear…touch reductive, but what a flavor ride… nice medium weight, long lingering finish.. classic, young match with crab, halibut, snapper…nice evidence for what Old World Chablis can bring to the party. — 7 days ago

MacRostie Winery & Vineyards

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2020

Yellow in color with a golden hue.

Nice nose of citrus, cedar, toast, vanilla, spices, golden apples and white pepper.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with oak, vanilla, citrus, apples, light pineapple, pears and light earth.

Tangy finish with limes and black pepper.

This is a tasty Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast. Refreshing and easy to drink. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Needs 15 minutes of airtime to remove some of the vanilla notes, and balance itself out.

Alcohol is well integrated, so you better watch out.

Good by itself or with food, and will be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in mostly French oak barrels for 6 months on their lees.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Les Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Hard to beat PYCM with the menu at Jônt. I love the Charmes site and 2014 is wide open, with just a touch of flinty reduction, but it’s all about its purity of yellow fruit that’s complimented by ripping citrusy acids, hazelnut and a hint of vanilla cream. Its supremely concentrated and dense palate shows great structure, power and a balanced stony minerality. This is still a baby but already evolving wonderfully. Great bottle. — 5 days ago

Marcel et Blanche Fèvre - Fèvre

Fourchaume 1er Cru Chablis Chardonnay 2017

These are night 2 notes. Nose has dense appley fruit and crushed rock. Only a little bit of that chicken broth note that I usually find more prominent. Big and dense in the mouth. Lots of rocky, seashell minerality. It’s got a lot of power, but the acids are lacking and the finish, while long, turns a wee bit bitter at the end. — 5 days ago

#KosherWineSunday

Pretty golden in color.

On the nose pears, apples, citrus, light wood, light spices, earth and minerals.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, ripe citrus fruits, apples, bitter herbs, spices, light oak, earth, vanilla and white pepper.

Long finish with almonds and spices.

This is a delicious Chardonnay from Burgundy. Well-balanced with an elegant mouthfeel.

This 4 year old is showing nice complexity now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

I had it before, and it is drinking even better now.

A good quality wine. Good right out of the bottle and better when not too cold.

Fruit forward and luxurious. Rich and focused.

Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Domaine Overnoy

Vieilles Vignes Côtes du Jura Chardonnay

Whoa. So unique- takes classic oxidative flavors and flips them on their head. Has a medIcinal, pungent, witchhazel quality on opening. At first was undecided but this won me over. Carries through to a mouth watering finish; resonant with not too much acid but terrific density and savory minerals. Silky, almost unctuous finish. — 3 days ago
