Monthly WTF wine group tasting. This month’s theme was chardonnay from any region or vintage. Nice eclectic bunch! All wines tasted blind.

Winner of the “biggest imitator”. This was very ripe, as though the wine was meant to be made a certain way. I think the entire group called this new world. Good bit of oak in play here, alongside melon, apple crumble pie, and hardly any acidity. Typical baking spice notes of nutmeg and vanilla too. May be starting to oxidize a bit, which probably gives this some complexity. Thanks

Nice weight, concentration, aromatic and broad on the palate. Apple blossoms, golden apple, melon, wet earth, hazelnut, mineral. The slight ox gives dimension and depth, reminiscent of village Chassagne or Meursault.

Elegant for Mercury Blancs. Reminiscent of village Mersault. Highly perfumed.

Perfect foil for our Dover sole meuniere and grilled seafood misti. Performs well above its lesser known appellation, though it is 1er Cru monopole. Great value too as this will smoke just about any village Blanc. Hints of Meursault saline and fruit nose with the breadth of a St. Aubin. Well integrated oak peeks out in the nose and at the back of the palate to tie in with the minerally and lush finish. #burgundy

2010. Punches way above its weight. Could age, but why wait? #devillard #burgundy
