Les Caillerets Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

I think one would struggle to find a better time to pop this cork than now - perfect drinking for the 2016.

Greeted with a nice lemon cream nose and oily texture, there’s depth in the taste profiles. Nuttiness, butter, and cream are layered with a slight puckering acidity and mineral notes.

Perfect with this halibut.

Les Grandes Ruchottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

Generally would agree that this wine doesn’t come off with a lot of classic umph that one might expect from 1er Cru but the 1er Cru terroir of chassagne is there undoubtedly and this does give way to the classic opinion that Puligny is usually more overtly pleasurable than Chassagne. It is complicated by mineral with a nice tropical inflection and a subtle energy but it is not explosive. I enjoyed this with many different good foods and had a lovely time as always with a noble Chardonnay like this. Enjoyable and delicious and evolved nicely over 3 days with sushi, noodles, pork, and lots of vegetables. — 9 months ago

Clos de Verger Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir

This 02 took some time to open up but it really blossomed. Lots of barnyard on the nose and great berries - blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. Very well integrated wine with nice balance — 5 years ago
