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. — a day ago

Blanchot Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

Whew! With a sad 04 MdT the other day I had to check in on another vineyard to see if the issue wasn’t something more broad that year. From the same mixed case this has heavy weight and is barely medium gold, with more of a canary color in the glass. Great fruit forward nose. Notes of lemon, white acacia flowers, wet stones, honeysuckle, tan spice, a hint of grapefruit and some cut citrus fruit. Great weight. Some pucker on the finish. This is in a good spot but has more years of enjoyment in front of it. — a month ago

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) — 8 days ago

Clos Habert Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2015

Vintage 2015 | off dry Chenin Blanc with excellent balance and a smell that reveals new impressions every time you take the glass to your nose: honey and minerals are prominent | often a wine really expresses itself in combination with food. This Clos Habert is perfect with the peppery rilettes of local star butcher Jean Maurice Lejeune. Second day, with ham in aspic — 10 days ago

I knew I loved their Chenin, but this is wonderful too—if you like a more ripe, slightly tropical sauvignon blanc, — 8 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2015

and a point of view—that grows with circumstance—or just good chardonnay on a sunday afternoon?

@domainemikulski isn’t your average bourgogne blanc, and of all the burgundy we got to taste at @gunterseegerny, the ‘11 meursault charmes stands out. this isn’t that—entry level, fraction of the price, young—but its elegance, concentration, richness, and hi-fi overtones speak the same vernacular, same “extraordinary gift for hope,” that nick said of gatsby.
