Premier Cru Burgundy

Simonnet-Febvre

Montmains Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay 2014

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

Château Corton Grancey Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

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.

I see you needed to also open Corton tonight, and best me by one vintage. 🤦‍♂️

This was part of last nights dinner with friends. Certainly had no thought of upstaging you or anyone. ✌️

We'll never upstage each other, but I'm having Affogato now and I'm in heaven.

Kirkland Signature

Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

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. 👍

@Severn Goodwin will look for this! I had a 2015 that was really nice!

@Dawn E. Yes, anything for 2016 is a buy. Only flaw, for me, on this is the light acidity, I wanted more than what was delivered, otherwise great bottle for the price.

Domaine Louis Michel

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

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.

"La Forest" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Two Forets side by side, what a treat! Again some solid oak though with an elegant and clean finish. Took on some saltier notes after some air. — 7 days ago

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2005

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

Domaine Ninot

Marissou Rully 1er Cru Pinot Noir

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

Domaine François Raveneau

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

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

Domaine Parent

Corton Grand Cru Chardonnay 2013

A gift from @Joe Lucca I was able to share with the local group and it was a big hit. Power and precision, honeysuckle, green apple, flint and a dab of brioche. May be my first Corton Blanc and I need more of this now. — 2 months ago
