Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Such wonderful finesse going on here. Like silk on the palate. Bright citrus blossoms and lemon verbena, ripe peach, kiwi and a hint of mushroom. Very saline on the back with excellent length. Superb value from Meursault and Pugliny. — 4 days ago

"Séchet" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

This was next level for me vs the La Forest but I think the table was split on the comparison. Rich and full but not fat at all, still marked tension and palpable minerality and just so substantial while being undeniably light on its feet. F’n love everything about it. — 8 days ago

This is lights out. Showing some reduction but expressive nonetheless less. Oily texture but still a laser beam of a wine. Not as complex as the Meursault or the single vineyard bottlings but for Bourgogne blanc you can’t beat this. Expensive for Bourgogne blanc but in terms of $60 Chardonnay it beats 100% in that category — 11 days ago

@Delectable Wine : This is the Roland Lavantureux Vau de Vey...I didn’t see it in the database.

Very enjoyable Wednesday Wine Committee lunch today with
@Weston Eidson & @Colby Siratt hosting. Same format as always...1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine all tasted blind.

I picked up a lot of petrol on the nose here at first. Surprised this was Chablis. Wasn’t overly steely. Low acidity. Lots of compact tropical fruits that are all slightly tart. I called this Alsatian and couldn’t decide between Riesling or pinot Gris.

Fun afternoon at Classic with great company. Glad you could join us Bryan.

Lemongrass and Meyer lemon on the nose. Medium acidity...mostly steely but there is a hint of oak. Being mersault, I expected a little more. Chalk and limestone down the middle of the palate.

@Yotam Sharon : I’m certainly no white burgundy expert, I just saw Meursault at the bottom of the label, so I just assumed. Guess not?

@Shay A the winery is located in Meursault, but this wine is either a mix of different vineyards in several villages or from vineyards outside a village appellation boundaries.

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2012

Willi’s Wine Bar in Paris. Medium gold color. Heavy in the glass. There’s a reductive thing in the nose at the start. We have it put in a decanter and with 30-60 min of air this blows off to reveal notes of apricot, stone, white flowers, white clay and some honey. Becomes very rich at the end of the evening with wonderful acidity and structure. Last sip was the best. — 8 days ago
