  • Tasting note: The benefit of the older vines is apparent as this is notably more complex than either the Forêts or the Montmains with its broad-ranging nose of subtle wood, green fruit, citrus, tidal pool, wet stone and saline notes where the salt and mineral elements continue onto the detailed, intense and exceptionally pure flavors that ooze Chablis character on the palate staining and impeccably balanced finish. One to strongly consider.

  • Tasting note: An exceptionally fresh and ever-so-mildly tropical nose offers plenty of classic Chablis character that includes sea breeze and oyster shell notes. There is good richness and verve to the nicely rich and solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess good detail and really lovely depth on the focused, long and delicious finish. As Chapelots often is, this is softer and not quite as impressive as the '08 Montée de Tonnerre (see herein) though the resemblance is striking (Chapelots is one of the climats of Montée de Tonnerre). For my taste this is just about ready though one more year of cellar time should help to add depth; that said, this could certainly be drunk now with pleasure.

    Chablis "Montée de Tonnerre"  ♥
    1er Cru White 750 ml

    Outstanding
    Note: from a huge parcel of 2.5 ha though this figure includes the surface area in Chapelot
    Producer note: Bernard Raveneau called the 2008 vintage an "unending series of surprises. We had snow at the end of March with the flowering occurring around June 20th. The summer was quite cool and August was wet instead of dry. It's a good thing that September was not too hot and dry with a steady north wind or we would have been overrun with rot problems. Then, of all things, we actually had a bit of frost in September though it was not enough to really hurt anything. We began picking on the 29th of September and the crop was really quite clean with fine sugars averaging between 12.5 and 13.2%, which means there was no chaptalization for any of our wines. 2008 is definitely marked by its lively acidity as there was plenty of malic and while the malos were long, they were not troubled. As to the wines, 2008 is clearly at least a very good vintage and they remind me a bit of the 1996s but with better concentration, which hopefully will mean that they age better too." Speaking of longer malos, Raveneau explained that the Vaillons was still completing its secondary fermentation and thus is not reviewed below. As I explained last year, fans of the Domaine are not seeing things because there really is a new wine in the range. 2007 was the first vintage for a villages level Chablis located near the 1er Montmains. Lastly, the Raveneau 2007s are brilliant wines and very much worth your attention. (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, www.kermitlynch.com, Berkeley, CA; John Armit Wines, www.armit.co.uk and Haynes, Hanson & Clark, www.hhandc.co.uk, both UK).
    Tasting note: This offers a step up in aromatic elegance with acacia blossom, quinine, citrus peel and sea shore aromas that are framed by a gentle touch of wood, which is also reflected by the intense, powerful and quite serious big-bodied flavors that ooze dry extract that confers a silky and sappy mouth feel to the seductive and long finish. Still, this will require at least 6 to 8 years to really be at its best and it should live for years after that.

  • Tasting note: A wafting and airy nose of honeysuckle, white fruit, including peach, pear and apple complements the dried floral notes and are in perfect keeping with the rich, full and palate staining medium weight flavors that are notably intense but perhaps a bit less elegant than usual. Still, this is impressive in its old vine intensity and sheer length. Interestingly, this is presently not as complex as the Chapelot is at the moment but there is even more material and I'm betting in time, this surpasses its stable mate. In passing, I mentioned to Raveneau how different the '06 and '07 versions were and he pointed out that in warm years, the east-facing exposition of Blanchots can have a tendency to create heavy wines [while simultaneously noting that the same exposition is a huge help in cool vintages] but that is certainly not the case here, indeed if anything, the finish is bone dry and the precision marvelous.

  • Tasting note: Here too there is just a background hint of wood that does not intrude upon the wonderfully refined aromas that are airy, pure and lacy and exhibit largely the same components as the Montée de Tonnerre. The detailed and equally pure flavors are unusually forward with fine intensity and superb finishing length and minerality. I like the high level of extract and overall sense of balance.

  • Tasting note: A measured dollop of wood does not impede the appreciation of the floral and earth-inflected white orchard fruit-scented nose. There is better volume and mid-palate density to the attractively punchy and powerful middle weight flavors that display a mild touch of rusticity on the impressively complex and persistent finale. This pretty and softly stony effort should benefit from 4 to 7 years of cellaring.

  • Tasting note: The reduction is strong enough to push the fruit to the background but there is very good freshness and vibrancy to the broad-shouldered and notably ripe middle weight plus flavors that retain a good sense of underlying tension that adds lift to the very rich and lingering finish. This is a big but balanced wine that is more refined than the typical example of Morgeot. Worth considering.

    Drink: 2007+
    Issue: 19
    Note: from two parcels, one of 30 year old vines and another of 70 year old vines planted on le vrai chardonnay
    Producer note: Thierry Amiot told me that 2003 isn't a "bad millésime but it didn't seem very interesting at first. The élevage wasn't linear or regular - each wine had its own personality and we had to treat each one individually. We started the harvest on August 18th but we harvested over the course of an entire month as we tried to harvest each parcel at its optimum ripeness level. Yields were quite low at around 32 hl/ha in white, mainly because Chassagne was really hit hard by frost, especially in the lower lying vineyards. Sugars were in the 13.5% range but I think they were that "low" only because the vines shut down; otherwise, we might have seen sugars in the 15%+ range. The vines jump started again around the 19th of August because there was a big storm which hit St. Aubin and while no rain fell in Chassagne, all the water ran downhill from St. Aubin and flooded our vineyards. This helped enormously and essentially unblocked the vines. Because of the reduced yields, I used a bit more new oak than usual as well as more SO2 and I bottled with slightly higher levels of gas. As to acidification, we did acidify but it was bit by bit and only until I could taste it and then we stopped immediately. There was no point in trying to deny the impact of the vintage and all the acid additions were meant to do was ensure a clean and healthy fermentation environment. The wines will probably drink well early but it won't surprise me if they wind up aging reasonably well." Like many domaines did, Amiot bottled his whites with decidedly higher gas and SO2 levels. (Kermit Lynch, Berkeley, CA; Boston Wine Company, Boston, MA; Lea & Sandeman, H&H Bancroft, Rare & Fine Wine, House of Townend, all UK).
    Tasting note: Sweet, vanilla and spice-infused oak notes frame very fresh and higher-toned peach and white flower fruit aromas that give way to toasty, intense and long flavors that display much more of the classic minerality than any of the prior examples. This is a powerful wine that departs from its normal character but remains attractive in its fashion - just don't expect a typical Caillerets experience. I suspect this will age for up to a decade.

    Tasting note: A fresh but emphatically toasty nose leads to sweet, round, fat and generous peach and apricot-infused flavors that are very forward yet retain good intensity and solid balance. The acidity pokes through somewhat on the medium length finish but it's noticeable rather than really intrusive.

  • Tasting note: This is also unusually expressive while exhibiting very subtle hints of exotic orange pekoe tea on the beautifully fresh nose of dried fruits that include apricot, white peach and acacia blossom. There is an opulent and caressing mouth feel to the very rich and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before terminating in a delicious, mineral-driven and impressively long finish. This is rich to the point of succulence and while it will certainly age well this will be approachable much earlier than usual.

  • Here too there is enough wood to merit mentioning on the decidedly cool and reserved nose that offers up plenty of floral elements along with those of citrus, iodine and oyster shell. The lavishly rich, muscular and overtly powerful flavors possess the hallmark minerality that carries over to the dense, citrusy and very dry finish. This beauty should age effortlessly. Don't miss!

    Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2025+15 October 2018

    The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is potentially the finest of Fèvre's 2017s, offering up notes of citrus oil, confit lemon, beeswax and sweet white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, glossy and rich, with a deep, firm core and chewy extract, balanced by juicy acids. It's a powerful, complete Les Clos that's built for the long haul.

  • 2012 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain

    (just the second vintage at Sauzet for this recently purchased parcel): Pale, bright yellow. Pear, peach, hazelnut and white flowers on the expressive nose. Then tactile and energetic in the mouth, with flavors of fresh hazelnut and dried fruits nicely framed by lemony acidity. Very upright, pure wine with a long, dry finish. Still a bit youthfully compressed and in need of a couple years of patience.

  • Tasting note: Soft reduction takes the top notes off of what appears to be elegant and complex aromas of white flower, citrus rind and wet stone. Like the nose, the detailed, intense and tension-filled middle weight flavors exude a fine minerality on the highly vibrant, delicious and wonderfully well-balanced finish. This distinctly linear effort is really lovely and built to reward up to a decade of cellar time.

  • Tasting note: A mild trace of reduction is enough to push the fruit to the background but I doubt that it will last; if you are tempted to try a bottle young simply decant it first. The lush and unusually full-bodied flavors in the context of what is typical for a villages level Puligny possess both fine volume and ample power while delivering excellent length on the impeccably well-balanced finale. This is a terrific effort and highly recommended.

    Outstanding Top value 
    Note: from Murgers de Monthelie and Les Casse Têtes
    Producer note: **All Wines Labeled as Cuvée Spéciale. Patrick Javillier explained that 2009 achieved “basically perfect maturity. We began picking on the 6th of September and brought in perfectly clean fruit with potential alcohols that ranged from 12.8 to 13.3%. Total acidities were normal but the pHs were relatively low. As such the wines are perfectly balanced with no heaviness and they not only have more flesh than the ‘08s but they have especially long finishes.” I found the Javillier ‘09s to be just as good as his amazing ‘08s and while the styles of the respective vintages are different, it’s hard to choose a qualitative winner. In short, both 2008 and 2009 are terrific vintages chez Javillier. I will repeat what I said about his ‘08s and apply it to his ‘09s: They are genuinely brilliant, particularly at the villages and regional wine levels. In fact, I would go so far as to say that there is quite simply no one in Burgundy producing better regional or villages level wines across the board.

    Tasting note: Here the nose is riper still and while it is overtly exotic, there is no hint of surmaturité. The flavors are viscous in fact there is a borderline oily quality as there is so much extract present that this is almost thick yet, almost incongruously, this is not at all ponderous or cumbersome. As one might imagine with so much extract, this is a distinctly powerful and intense wine that completely coats the palate on the hugely long finish. While this is a dramatic, even imposing wine, it is less elegant than usual but fans of power white burgundy cannot fail to appreciate it.

  • Tasting note: This is also quite elegant with its equally spicy nose of honeysuckle, yellow and white orchard fruit and citrus elements. There is a lovely vibrancy to the concentrated and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess good power on the markedly dry and somewhat compact edgy finish. As with the Combettes my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the finish will flesh out and the dryness will dissipate with time.
