Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2007

I absolutely adore this wine. Probably one of the best Premier Cru Chablis bottles I can remember tasting. A lovely medium straw color in the glass with faint tinges of green flecks. The bouquet is a tour de force of chalk, salinity, and citrus. Herbs and honey with just the right amount of oak.

It’s always fun when producers offer late releases which helps with potential cellaring. Developed but still on the young side, this is ready to drink now. The acid is just now beginning to develop into something beautiful. Emotional and thrilling on the tongue honey roasted nuts, lemons and limes, and seashells. A long persistent finish leaves you hoping you have a few more left.

La Verchere Vieilles Vignes Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2007

2007 | Chardonnay
Daniel Barraud; La Verchère VV
Burgundy; Maconnais, Poiully-Fuissé, France
(92-94; drink 2017-27+)

Nose has recently cut yellow apple, fresh pineapple, cane sugar and faint beeswax.
Palate has tart/under-ripe pineapple/yellow apple, lemon zest with mild chalky notes; plenty of acid to keep the palate lively. A great vintage for white Burgundy; A standout bottle from a heavily diminished case.

Paired with boneless chicken thighs, gnocchi, Parmesan cream sauce and kale from the garden (picked today, January!).

Another great producer. I’m surprised it’s still hanging in there. I rarely let my Bojo’s get that mature.
