Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Great nose. So precise and on point. Lemon, wet forest floor, minerals, candied but barely. Lovely classic 14 nose. Dynamic 2014 with lovely energy, purity and sap. So very pure and clean. Excellent depth and just so harmonious. Reminds me of the Mosel for some reason. Very mineral finish and lovely persistence. — 6 days ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

Pale Gold in colour and crystal clear. Nuances of honey florals mineral and herbal characters. With time notes of sliced pear. Plenty happening on the palate which initially was delicate and refined but developed more weight with aeration. A fascinating journey for this gorgeous mature Genevrieres and a good showing for a lesser vintage. Drink now. One of the 1001 Wines. — 5 days ago

Gorgeous wine. Gained even more weight in a year since last having it. Complex nose of butter, mineral, grilled apples, iodine and so much depth and breadth. Palate has such wonderful finesse and freshness from the intense minerality. Juicy. Complex and compact. Drinking great now and shows the classic profile of a great 15. — 6 days ago

Bourgogne Aligoté 2016

Great white burg at this price point. Great acidity from the slightest but it felt like the vintage gave it a lot of fruit as well. — 5 days ago

Fresh, dense and vibrant aromatics and lovely texture. Everything I could wish for in an 2005 Coche Bourgogne, and so much more. — 6 days ago

Domaine de la Croix Senaillet

Les Buis Saint-Veran Chardonnay 2015

College baseball and a nice Maconnais white. Nose is very deep, with wet limestone minerality, and pear fruit augmented by a clean sweaty note. Nice depth of flavor, with pear skin fruit and dark minerality in equal measure. Very good length and some nice acidity peeks though at the very end (unusual for the Maconnais). Fantastic value, and in the top 1% of wines from this region. — 9 days ago

Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him, and expanded the appellations in his domaine either through inheritance, purchase, or a system of leasing called "fermage." Aromas of stone and citrus fruits. The palate shows lemons with crisp apple, mineral & oak notes. This medium-body wine has good balance with integrated acidity, lingering, finishing smooth with a citrus mineral ending. Very Nice! — 2 days ago

La Verchère Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2005

Nothing better than a well aged Chardonnay and fatty, cold water fish. This bottle is our go to pairing for grilled steelhead trout.

Nose is evolving since my prior post, oxidized green apple peel and cold caramel.

Palate is lightly sweet lemon curd/custard, baked red apple, cooked lemon, warm granite dust and a zing of acidity on the close.

Our feline house managers pestered for comfortable portions on the trout, they are good boys and girls, generally, so we endulge.

Great night listening to Hugh Masekela and Mongo Santamaria on the HiFi, everything complimented!

One bottle left, then we move along to the next vintage.

Domaine de Chantemerle

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Clear, light golden yellow color. Aromas of stone and tropical fruits. Made from 40-year old vines, aged in 100% stainless steel. The palate shows lemon citrus with crisp apple and peach notes. This medium-body wine, crisp acidity, good balance and mouthfeel, finishes smooth, a little creamy on the end. Very Nice! — 13 days ago
