Chablis Chardonnay 2017

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.

Have you had many 2017 White Burgs to see if the comparison continues further south? ‘14 an absolute favorite of mine for whites!

@Michael Herzog I do own a bunch of 17 Burg, some is at the house, some on pre-arrival still. Haven't opened anything aside from Chablis for 17. Likely I'll wait until at least '20 before I get to them.

@Michael Herzog 17 >>> 14 because more depth and fruit and better balance. 14 doesn’t have the depth. It has acid but is not aging as well as I thought. 17 is overall better.

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2014

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.

Bought from fass selections.

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

A beautiful limpid nose of oyster shells, soft lime, white flowers, limestone. Very pure and focussed on the palate. Soft edges and delicate citrus, but there’s heft underneath this. Very transparent and balanced. Fantastic stuff. — 8 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Creamy pineapple core, fine mineral notes, satisfying.

We're making Bolognese sauce today, needed some white wine, some for the cook, some for the sauce and some more for the cook. This is our new (blanc) cooking wine for the house, great price at ~$15.

It helps the sauce, and the cook!

La Brigadière Mercurey Chardonnay 2017

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

Meursault Goutte d'Or 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

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

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

We're entertaining my in-laws and parents today, fun 🤷‍♂️. Bottles go fast when you're pouring for six glasses.

Creamy tropical fruits, under-ripe peach, light saline notes, needs years to come together still. Decanted 2+ hours. 2016 vintage 👍👍

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

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

Bourgogne Aligoté 2011

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
