To begin, a very nice Côte de Léchet, but I think that Jean Dauvissat does this 1er Cru best.
Nose is cooked lemon, lemon pith, light/wet limestone and under-ripe white peach.
Palate has fresh, steamed lemon, crunchy oyster shell soup and lemon curd (light).
Solid wine, plus 2016, nice QPR. — 3 months ago
Lemon oil, flint and green apple. — 15 days ago
Surprisingly flabby for a grand cru Chablis. — 2 months ago
This was a rock solid wine. Scorching acidity that wasn’t properly supported by the green apple flavors we crave from Chablis. — 3 months ago
Wow. Awesome. A bit less rich than the 14. Just Great. Screaming mineral and stone fruit on the nose. Fruit and mineral with integrated richness on the palate. So alive. Just jumps at you. Finish is mineral and long. Just sweet minerals that cling to the palate like super glue. Finish is perfect. Like a roller coaster up (fruit) side (mineral) sideways (forward). Perfect balance between big flavors. A wine you can either gulp down or savor over an evening. Wow what a star. Bought from fass selections. ... if I had to do a two word tasting note it would be “Fucking magic”. Vaporizes $100 Côte d’Or. 25 - 35 or so. Wish I bought it all. — 5 months ago
Love this bottling. Seashells, lime zest, lemon curd, citrus zest and pith, so nice. Sweet and sappy with lovely mineral expression and so pure. Juicy and so clean with great ripeness and compactness. Long and persistent. Complex already. Finishes firmly mineral. — 5 months ago
