Les Chétillons Cuvée Spéciale Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2010

Axé beaucoup sur la pomme verte. Une touche de miel aussi et de croissants. Droit et vif. Bonne acidité. Manque une petite touche plus cremeuse. Belle longueur. — 22 days ago

Oiry Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Excellent BdB. Acid on acid on acid on acid. This drinks like laser beams. Lemon and Granny Smith apple with just a slight bit of toasted brioche on the finish. Still pretty austere at this stage—I feel like a few years in the cellar would make this even more interesting. 2015 base. Disgorged November 2018. — 19 days ago

Brut Grand Cru Champagne

Absolutely love this. Has all the power one could hope for, but also has a steely, tense crisp freshness to it. Texturally, it reminds me a ton of Cedric Bouchard’s wines which is as high a compliment as I can give. Amazing. — 7 days ago

Meursault-Goutte d'Or 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Au Flocon de Sel. Un premier vin, blanc, pour accompagner les services de fera, ecrevisses, champignons et brochet. Tout simplement délicieux. On y denote des fruits blancs et tropicaux et un peu de miel. On retrouve un petit côté minéral, de pierres. La bouche est ronde, grasse. C’est crémeux et frais à la fois. Le bois se fait encore sentir. Longueur excellente. — 19 days ago

An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

What a total treat. My second glass of this was very different from the first glass. At first, I was getting a lot of honeyed tropical fruits with a good bit of yeast, but then it was more bright, and had caramelized Granny Smith apple notes and classic chalky limestone. This is right down the middle in terms of reductive vs oxidative. I wish I could have enjoyed this all on its own to give it the attention it deserved. I guessed this was ‘06 Le Mesnil.

Served blind at a Friday wine function. Flirts between too young to drink and right in the wheelhouse. You know this is going to be a good day when this is served as the aperitif to a meal. Although this had plenty of brioche and oxidative style with a hint of citrus and pear, there was some green apple right on the other side, and a refreshing tart on the finish. Very powerful, yet never really seemed to give all that it had. I rather easily sucked down two glasses of this. I honestly think the 96 Vintage Krug outdid this by a little bit, but I think only because of 8 years of age difference. Want to give this a 97, but I will reserve that score for a couple of years from now.
