OMG 2017 Chablis, what a vintage you are!!
Nose has slightly grassy notes, sweet pineapple core and wet, crushed limestone.
Palate has very zingy lime, lime flesh, tart green apple, lemon peel and drying mineral dust. Medium-long finish.
Decanted only about 30m, more time needed.
We're enjoying our first fire in the chimenea on this cool late summer evening, just one of many to come the rest of the year.
24 Hour Update: Acidity has subsided, wet limestone is more prominent, pineapple notes are more core and less sweetness today. I knew this just needed more time to come around, fantastic. — 2 days ago
Wow. Utterly magnificent for village puligny. Genius wine. Worth $100 easy. When morel hits it he hits it. Nose is so elegant. Fresh rainwater. Yellow flowers. Beautiful. The palate is sweet mineral goodness. Like a sweet rock was pulverized in your mouth. Long finish. A wine of beauty and distinction. Too bad French over regulation caused him to throw in the towel.
As this aerates the nose is beautiful. The palate is richer. But in such an elegant way.
This needs an hour to peak. Wow. This is gorgeous. Grand cru gorgeous. Wow. Hand over land. Lol. The ultimate king slayer to bring to a burgundy tasting.

Wow! Very mineral and secondary nose with hay, gun powder, a bit of toasted bread too and some vanilla along with butter and lemon. This could be Meursault right there! Very nice palate with strong acids, a very wide palate with a very soft touch followed by some good grip. Lemony and buttery notes play their part too in this little joyful tune. The finish is all lemon and butter for a very long while. This is very good! — 3 days ago
Butter, hay, lemon. Rather simple nose which screams Meursault in your face. The palate is huge with sheer acids, a buttery touch on the side, a huge width with a dense matter, some grip starting from mid palate, lemony notes all along and an everlasting finish with butter and lemon. It lasts more than a minute. What a finish! Such power. You gotta love it. — 13 hours ago
Other vintages of this don’t have the most stellar reviews but I think this excels. Dear Chablis, please stay humble. It hit my nose with ever so much chalk. Then I took a sip and realized the chalk was just hiding all the lemon-honey-cough-drop-without-being-medicinal goodness in this bottle. It isn’t the most complex but rather just powerful and modest enough to keep me intrigued. Extra bonus it was not overly spendy. — 7 days ago
Never know what you’ll find on a trip to Specs. For sub $20 this is fantastic. White grapefruit, lemon balm, wild flowers, crisp Granny Smith apples, fresh herbs. Been playing around with this bottle for a few days now.. Day 3 and served slightly on the colder side is the way to go. — 12 days ago
