Vaudésir Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

🏅 Rating 93/100 (4,3⭐)

Intense color with greenish hue. Fragrant aromatic, concentrated, sea salinity. Floral, almonds. Medium body. Unmistakably demonstrates the Grand Cru level which is accessible now and has immense potential for years ahead. Fully justifies the nobility of Vaudesir which often considered on par or the runner up to Le Clos.

Fairly steep slopes of Vaudesir with NW exposure provide cool temperatures and sunlight in the evening. Vines of Louis Michel parcels were planted in 1950-70s.

Winemaking with indigenous yeasts, spontaneous malo and matured for at least 18 months. Wines never see oak, stainless steel tanks only.

Forêts Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Excellent Chablis - classic oyster shell and minerality in a slightly oily texture that coats the mouth as you enjoy an array of primary fruits - lemon peel, apple, pear, peach pith, along with floral notes of orange blossom and white flower. This is all cut perfectly by high acidity that carries the flavors in a long and lively finish. — 10 hours ago

Cornas Syrah 2015

Quite fruit driven. Will go for another 5 years or more. Still very tannic, hint of brett blueberry, a little to rich for me but seriously great stuff. Minty. — 13 days ago

Clos des Réas Monopole Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Almost peak? Good aroma, oak, leather. Gentle and balanced taste. Changed a lot with complexity with herb or slight medicine. Fruity, violet. Bordeaux nuance is not so strong. 2012 @4350, wine plus - BB, 210407 — 6 days ago

Special Club Brut Champagne 2013

The prestige Cuvée of the house, equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from vines dating back up to 70 years. Plenty of tension and youthful energy going on here. Nice acidity and structure with a lot of personality.

Pale shimmering gold with not a lot of bubbles and nice effervescence. A nice floral bouquet of citrus fruits and flowers. Pears and pineapples are dominant here with plenty of apples to help out. The palate is the height of harmony and finesse. There’s a subtle elegance with plenty of depth and complexity. An outstanding champagne with years left in the game.

Grenouilles Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2005

🏅 Rating 90/100 (4,0⭐)

Yellow gold. Buttery. Shows its age with more tertiary aromas of mushrooms. Oily texture. Bitter citrus zest and long finish. No oak wine making preserves the purity of the wine with aging. It won't develop more and we are lucky to meet it at the stage before it starts declining.

Comes from the smallest Chablis Grand Cru. Domaine's plot is located at the top of the slope. Vines were planted in 1950-80. SW exposure, with plenty of sunshine and gentle breezes, tempered by the Serein river. Fairly gentle slope. Le Chablisienne cooperative owns over 75% of the climat.

Winemaking is with indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Wines never see oak, steel only. Maturation 18mo.

Pop and pour. Purchased from Domaine. Lovely smoke and plum with a touch of VA. On the palate: excellent acidity, a touch of dark chcocolate, bright red fruit and soft tannin on the finish. Excellent for its level. — 18 days ago
