Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

A mid to rich lemon in colour. Mark our host was a little concerned by the colour initially. Buttery and citrus notes until it gained some air. No need to be concerned. A wonderful Criots of real Grand Cru quality with mineral and citrus of profound intensity. It grew in the glass as we tasted it. Drinking at its peak. No further cellaring required. A wonderful experience. Thanks Mark. — 3 days ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Wine No. 5 in the 2016 white Grand Cru lineup tasted blind. We knew the identities but not the order of service. A very intense mineral nose with plenty of struck match/sulphur white flesh fruits. Quite reductive. Medium plus verging on profound intensity on the palate. Everything about this wine is intense and powerful. A long future ahead. Would rate a higher score once the sulphur blows off. Proves again that 2016 in certain areas was a very good vintage for whites. After the initial frost everything went well. — a month ago

Great notes, right on point. Recently I’ve noticed I have a physical reaction (similar to an allergy) when I drink wines with high amounts of sulphur, which has caused me to stop drinking this producer’s wines. Will enjoy vicariously.

@Manny Abascal Yes I’ve noticed Australian Chardonnay makers are looking for that struck match character which I believe is not entirely due to sulphur but not being a winemaker not sure what that is exactly.

Château Clos du Moulin

Médoc Cru Bourgeois Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Deep cherry nose. Sharp minerality balanced by a full round body. Something mid-palate between tobacco, smoke, shale. Bubble gum??! Dry finish with lingering tendrils of fruit. — 4 days ago
