Maison Champy (Domaine Champy)

Viré-Clessé Chardonnay

Glad I saved one of these! This thing blossomed amazingly! Butter and soft boiled eggs, marigold, brioche, apricot, lemon curd and chicken bone with a nearly translucent pineapple hint to the aromas. A smoky and austere entry last year has acquiesced to briny lemon, hazelnut oil, caperberry, sesame and flint, with a resonance bordering on chalky sunflower. Stunning. Should have saved more! #Champy #whiteburgundy #bourgogneblanc #burgundy #bougogne #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #chardon #blancshavemorefun #blanche #viréclessé — 3 years ago

Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2013


Clear and bright pale lemon. Clean pronounced aromas of ripe apricot, sage, fennel and gingerbread. On the palate it's dry albeit with a lush glyceric texture with medium plus intensity flavors of of apricot pie with a smiley charred crust and a touch of nutmeg and spice. Medium plus alcohol, medium plus acidity, well integrated oak, balanced with a medium plus finish. Complex, unique and well balanced. Only 22 barrels. #staritahills #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #centralcoastwine #californianwine #sbcountywines — 3 years ago

Les Referts Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

Overall impression is hindered from a cold but overall from what I can gather it is what I have come to expect from Sauzet with a rich, toasty nose, then a palate with cut, verve and minerality with a long finish. #pulignymontrachet #sauzet #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth — 5 years ago
