Aromas of stone fruits with a crisp citrus edge surrounded by herb scents. On the palate ripe fruit flavors of peach & apple with honey tones, savory with good balance. Lingering finish ending with citrus mineral character. Nice now, small production 600 cases made. — 10 days ago
Bright, crisp. Light color. Delightful. — 10 days ago
This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.
Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

QPR alert 🚨!
Nose has light florals, fresh lemon peel and wet limestone.
Palate has sweet (not tart) lemon, (too) light acidity and light mineral/saline finish.
This was $18 at our Costco. I was intrigued when I saw this vintage, it easily drinks like established Chablis at ~$25. No one should hesitate to buy at least a bottle or two, or more.
Picking up a white peach note the longer the wine is open, nice. 👍 — 11 days ago
Domaine is one of the leading family-held estates consistently producing high quality Chablis. Michel’s philosophy "Let the wine make itself, as far as possible". In sticking to this philosophy Jean-Loup Michel uses no barrels. A tank fermented Chablis, aromas of white flesh fruits and sweet floral spice. On the palate apple and citrus flavors with great mouthfeel. Smooth, lingering finish ending with wet stone minerality.

Damn, that was delicious. Either talk to your Rosenthal rep, or ask your local wine shop to find this from Rosenthal, there is definitely some on the east coast. Smokin good. Probably some bottle variation but this cork was pristine and the wine was in great shape. — 2 days ago
Starting to understand what a “young” Pinot tastes like. Still loved this. Gravely nose. I swear I smelled tennis ball rubber. Great dark ripe red fruit early. Light to medium body. Med plus acid. Complex enough but I was expecting more. Lightly dry finish and pleasant low-impact tannin. Slight alcohol in chest immediately after. Decanted 2+ hours and back into bottle. Even better 16 hours later. I had the Premier Cru. — 2 days ago
Nice golden hue, looks heavy and rich in the glass. Honeyed fragrant nose. Notes of sweet apricot, mango, lemon, white clay, tan spice, and stones. Nice intensity in the mouth, with gobs of fruit matched against acidity that built over the afternoon. Telltale aged Raveneau honey, exotic today but not over the top. I brought this and it was the best of the couple or so bottles of it that I've had. Was at its best with ~5 hours of air, and leftover was still singing the next morning. — 15 days ago
