So happy to be able to go out to lunch Monday in Iowa..been a long time! Broke a tooth on chips & salsa...Dentist Tuesday..little Periodontist surgery 8 am this morning!! So happy to get off of pain med..codeine gives me a migraine! A glass of wine to ease the day as I relax to 60's folk music.
This Bourgogne is really delicious! Smiles....its been a long day! 🦷🤐 getting better... temporary crown next week!
Update..we finished this wine with a shrimp salad with dinner...this Chardonnay is stunning. New World in style...great fruit..balanced by minerals..slight hints of tropical fruits and a nuttiness all at the same time..presents with a bit of lanolin too! Love this wine!

@Dawn E. Glad you sought out out! I think we have 1 bottle left of the 2013, I might be able to find more, but TBD as we have plenty of other bottles to distract me from needing more of that one. The 1er Cru E-S wines are great, but elusive, expensive and needing years to relax.

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

This is really classy. Restrained but powerful and clear. A hint of lanolin, lemon oil, steel, oyster shells. A soft plasticine like thing. This is lucid, focussed and gorgeous. — a day ago

Domaine Roulot

Meursault Chardonnay 2016

A baby but couldn’t resist. Lean and focused. Limestone and tart yellow fruits. Excited to try day 2. Overall this is held up on day 2 but with such a high price point (despite how meticulous these wines are made) And with such a delicate aroma and palette it gives me pause to recommend a $200 plus price point “village” when so many wonderful other options exist — 8 days ago

Cuvee Cassaneas Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2017

Sweet minerals on the nose.

Palate is very clean. Definitely a mineral bomb. Lemon pith .. sweet lemon pith. Aerated lemon zest. Dense but in a cerebral way. Laser ground dusty minerals. Almost mineral spice. Terrific palate roundness. Hits all parts of the palate.

This is NOT a pop and pour. It needs 30-60 minutes. Treat it like a high end village wine.

Bought from fass selections.

Couvent des Jacobins Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Lime and citrus on nose with nutty aromatics and a modern western twang of pineapple juice on nose and palate - a light oak touch. Ready to drink now. Great producer in an excellent year for white burgundy. This is a good Village White Bourgogne. — 2 days ago

Nose is a bit of smoke and minerals

Palate is super Crisp and acidic. Green apple with a hint of papaya.

Really well made.

I’ve been reading & hearing about this rising Burgundy star for awhile. It was time.

The first thing I would say about this bottling is it is still very young. A few years will improve it greatly.

While young, it rides the French Burgundy & Sonoma Chardonnay fence with great balance between the two. The wood use isn’t big, just more than I like at this point for burgundy. I think that will soften in time. They use about 20% new for their Bourgogne Chardonnay & 30% for their higher end whites.

The nose is cream soda with a touch of ginger. Green apple, pineapple, lime candy, elegant minerality, soft chalkiness, sea spray, sweet butter, vanillin, sweet volcanics, yellow lilies, spring flowers with a touch of cut greens.

The body is round with good viscosity. Really beautiful. Drinks like a nice Meursault. Cream soda with a touch of ginger. Green apple, pineapple, lime candy, white peach, hints of grapefruit with a touch of sugar, honeysuckle notes, elegant minerality, soft chalkiness, sea spray, sweet butter, vanillin, herbal characteristic, sweet volcanics, yellow lilies, spring flowers, fruit blossoms with a touch of cut greens. The acidity shows the strength of the vintage. The finish is; perfect balance fruit & earth, elegant with excellent polish that persists several minutes.

Get it while you can. They produce several wines and only make a total production of 3,000-4,000 cases depending on what the growing season brings.

Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

A beautiful nose of yellow orchard fruit, honeysuckle and a touch of sea shells and salin texture. The wine is rich, a nice roundness and slightly less crisp than the usual Droin style, but still with enough backbone and acidity to make it harmonious, balanced, classy, elegant and with a lingering delicious finish. Great bottle. Un nez magnifique sur les fruits jaunes, pêches et un petit côté chèvrefeuille et une touche de coquillage. La bouche est sur le même registre, un côté plus riche et ample que le style Droin habituel, mais non dénuée de colonne et d’acidité qui en font un ensemble harmonieux, frais, pur, équilibré et avec beaucoup de classe et une longueur impressionnante. 93 pts aisément — a day ago

Auxey-Duresses Chardonnay 2001

Nicely developed with nutty and caramel notes on the nose followed by a candied lemon and apricot flavors on the palate. Easily Premier Cru quality as it blends a great mix of weight, texture and flavors. Saw this on a to-go wine list of a restaurant we like and support through this pandemic and couldn’t resist the urge. This is what a quality producer can do with a less followed appellation. — 6 days ago
