White Burgundy

Domaine Leroy

Bourgogne Aligoté 2011

Stop asking questions and just try this. As with almost every wine from Leroy, gotta give this a few minutes to let the sulphery funk blow off. But once it does... clean and focused Meyer lemon curd, crushed rocks, and flint. Amazing that this “peasant” wine is rocking at 8 years old. Will go another 8 without even blinking. — 8 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. — 4 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Very nice
The oak is not overwhelming but it is supporting the fruit
Long finish, maybe not a great complexity

Domaine des Marrans

Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay 2016

2016 Burgundy... Do I need to say more? It's slamming good!

Nose is a saline solution with sweet green apple and light oyster shell.
Palate is incredible balanced acidity with Anjou pear and this ever lingering saline finish.

For certain, one of the best BoJo blancs to ever grace my glass!

Happy Valentine's Day 2019 to all.

24hr Update: Nose has subsided slightly, but the palate is going strong and picking up minor red fruit (strawberry) notes. I tend to pick up those red notes only in Chardonnay from Beaujolais, after about a day or two after opening, interesting.

All day long, every damn day. Rock solid entry level Leroy that will age gracefully. Solid core of clean fruit and some chalk on the finish. — 8 days ago

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 Bernard Defaix

Chablis Chardonnay 2015

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Aromas of citrus, almond and hints of nougat. On the palate citrus verging on stone fruit. Absolutely delicious. Tasting more new world in this warm vintage. When they are as good as this for only $39AUD I cannot see the point in cellaring. On the 2nd night a little oyster shell and mineral on the nose. — 2 days ago

Les Grandes Coutres Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Grapes from 3 plots bordering Meursault, vines up to 50 years old. Aromas of elegant ripe fruits with slight toasty notes. On the palate rich melon and lemon flavors with vanilla and creamy oak notes surrounded by a great mouthfeel. Lingering ending with fruit adding some mineral freshness. Very nice. Great value. — 11 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2012

Nose has flinty pineapple, ripe mango, moist light oak and white flowers.
Palate has warm stone fruit mash, incredible passion fruit mousse, chalky-ripe yellow peach, light on the acidity, but incredibly long finish.
Solid wine but the acidity of the 2013 version (previously posted) is missing. 😐

Photos from our visit to Jadot from the Spring of 2018, the red wine barrel room packed full-full-full of 2017's, the ceiling of their fermentation room of all wood structure with massive/beautiful spans, the wood vats used for initial processing of new red fruit and our bottle of the evening. I wish we could have tasted any vintage of this wine when we visited, but alas it didn't make it into our lineup.

Domaine Leflaive

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2000

Lovely gentle lemon with seashells on the nose. There’s a real warmth to this in the core- lovely honeyed fruit with good tension and a long, long finish. A lovely wine.... 30 mins later, this has expanded and is really open and lush. Wow — 14 hours ago
