@Spencer Fox Better in 2010, but that's the vintage variation.

(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!).

I chalk that up to Defaix’s commitment to INOX, even in the case of his 1er and GC along with his protracted aging on the lees before bottling and ultimately, release.

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

The bottle had a chip on the lip that was concealed by the foil. (See upper left of photo). There wasn’t any glass released by removing the cap, so the bottle should not have been used. None-the-less, the wine was fine. The color was dark straw. On the nose the caramel aging notes are evident. On the palate more caramel notes along with oak, lemon, molasses, ginger, burnt sugar, and minerals. Medium bodied, high acid, medium alcohol, with a long finish. This is a 2009 and fully aged. — 7 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Château Vieilles Vignes Chablis Chardonnay 2020

I’m a little bit disappointed with this wine. For 3y it shows surprising age - deep golden color, with ripe yellow apples & Reine Claude plums, with a bit of fresh apple pie. Round and mellow - I miss the typical mineral, steely sharpness. Esp. at this age.
On the palate this is more structured, properly mineral & steely with racy, juicy acidity and a long finish of salty lemons. Nice depth, too.
Went well with the fish, by not sure if I’m going to buy it again.

That’s the style of the house. Rich, round and oily.

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