Au Pied du Mont Chauve

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pale golden straw. Immediate whiff of gunpowder wafts past lemon zest and warm juice undercoats; lemon verbena, living sage, chive, and colored pencil. Palatal silk evaporates to spongey pith of lime in a magically, porously, dry transformation shimmering with crystalline suggestions and smoky allusions.long and heartfelt reverberations beyond its last drops.

Domaine Jean-François Quénard

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

White gold glints over chatelaine. Pineapple peers through a steely mask, jasmine and magnolia softly breathe through winter’s nostrils. Meyer lemon suggestions turn zest and pith on the palate; key lime invoked. Grapefruit veins of pith peel back slowly to reveal lightning streaks of complex citruses, and squash blossom stem.

Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Lemon, leek, lime, sage, dried pineapple and tangerine pith, jasmine and caperberry nose. Racy lemon pith and oils are rounded just slightly by green olive whisper, rich white grapefruit, snap pea and lemongrass. Seductive and fast!

Domaine Moutard-Diligent

Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Smoky lime with lemon oil and zest and even a bit of cucumber. Racy but still enough of a creamy finish to keep it multi-dimensional. Crystalline grapefruit, lime zest and clean mineral carry through into an amazing and long, satisfying ending. #chablis #moutarddiligent #1ercru #cruchablis #chablis1er — 4 years ago

Domaine Fourrier

Vieille Vigne Les Gruenchers Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Gorgeous garnet, star bright reflectivity. Rim to rim continuity. Cedar dusted black cherry and strawberry glow warmly in a vanilla and baked cran and ripe red currant dappling. There are red apple leanings and roobios-tulip whispers in a complex and seductive nose that stoops in bushes of thyme and all spice pods. Rich mouthfeel exhibits bits of its green youth, but has unveiled to reveal its abundance with a lengthy decant. Tart cherry and sweet tobacco, tart raspberry essence, dried violets and rose petal, dried strawberry and beet soaked thyme. Grossly underrepresented in this assessment, as the whole is like a wondrous river in a florid wood undulating with ripples of fallen blossoms. Astounding.

Domaine Jeannin Naltet

Clos des Grands Voyens Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Red apple and red cherry meat with cranberry and raspberry and a pinch of smoky black salt tantalizing the nose. Tart raspberry dried violets, rose petal, red apple peel, blood orange. Tart and tangy, with a pointy end. .

Nicolas Potel

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Nose of plummy, sirloin deliciousness; violets and lavender. Imminently drinkable with cranberry and raspberry giving way to tart cherry and a smoky streak throughout. Beautiful and impressive display of finesse with wiry sinew. Perfect silken complement to cedar plank steelhead trout. .

Domaine François Carillon

Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

Young, but accessible. Gun flint nose is instantly seductive descending like smoke onto brioche and twists of impossibly minute lemon peel, lime and tangerine piths, underripe pineapple freshness, Marcona almond, toasted sesame, chalky chunks have absorbed the smoke, and fallen citrus celebrates its rebirth. Lemon pith that oozes lemon skin oils like dewdrop diamonds. Incredible minerality that crystallizes into spines of grapefruit, dandelion, dried gooseberry, and marigold. Shiny, bright, crystal clean, and revelatory. Amazing compilation of parts that remains suspended like a chandelier in ethereal weightlessness.

Etienne Sauzet

La Truffière Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay

Ginkgo smash rot blows off to wildflower honey and brioche, tart pineapple, chamomile, yellow apple, ginger nose. Tart starfruit, lemon zest, lime pith, lemon-lime peel; wound a little tight. Lemongrass and a green onion element I expect to vanish. Ginseng and glittering lemon oil and racing pith for a long salivating finish. Opened rich and unctuous, but narrowed to focused acid blast.

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.0

Pale lemon color. Medium(-) intensity aromas of citrus (lemon, tangerine) yeast and battonage (yeast, oat, cereal, bread dough) and cream. Very Champagne like. On the palate the wine is dry with medium acidity medium alcohol that warms your chest (13?) medium body and a medium(+) finish. Very good. #burgundy #whiteburgundy #chardonnay #france #1ercru — 2 years ago
